Look closely at every bag... 

Of our Black Lab coffee and you might just spot the silhouette of a Labrador... Black Lab Coffee Roasters was created in isolation as we spent each day gazing at our very own black Labrador, Molly; taking her for walks and wondering, amidst so much uncertainty, what the future had in store.With her incredible ability to run and run (and run!) she's inspired us to keep going, and in turn we couldn't have come up with a better way to honor our best-friend than to name this venture after her.

We began in 2020... 

After lockdown by going all-out and purchasing a 2kg roaster, converting our small garage into a full working roastery and getting down to work. After 6 months of online tutorials, many kgs of trial and error and the help from many honest guinea pigs we had produced our delicious first blend and began selling online. We named our first blend Tahuna which is the Māori word for Queenstown, a nod to the community that supports us. 

Cut to today... 

We have moved out of our garage and into our very own Roastery and shop located in Country Lane, Frankton. We are open 5 days a week for all your wholesale and home coffee brewing needs or just to keep you Caffeinated (if you bring a keep cup) If not you can choose to sit in our lovely space and simply hang out to chat or watch Pol roast.

 With a big focus on sustainability our waste free swap in / swap out subscription service is ever growing around homes and offices and all thanks to the amazing local support and networking.

We are very proud of our small business and endeavor not to be the next big thing in coffee, just the very best in Queenstown!
