Few cafés embrace traceability quite like Modus Coffee. From the farmer to the customer, Modus Coffee Marketing Manager Abbey Fowler says the team are dedicated to providing a complete service experience that is rooted in quality, transparency, and responsibility.

“At Modus Coffee, we are committed to making coffee better for everyone by responsibly sourcing, roasting, and brewing high-quality coffee in Boorloo, Western Australia. We believe transparency is key, and our focus on developing lasting relationships with our coffee suppliers ensures that all our sourcing is ethical and sustainable,” she says.

Owners Sam Robins and Tobias Glass came together with a shared passion for great coffee that led them to begin roasting under their own brand in 2018. This meant they could have complete control over the quality and traceability of the beans used.

“We only buy coffee from trusted importers who are willing to share all the information about the producer and their farm and are transparent about the financial details of their coffee purchasing. Our customers see this traceability on all of our packaging, social media, and website, where we display illustrations of each coffee farmer we work with,” Abbey says.

“We also show our dedication to the farmers we work with by actively naming our house coffees after them. We did this from day one with our first house coffee from our long-time partner and Colombian farmer Luis Anibal Calderon, whose coffee we still pour today.”

Sam and Tobias have expanded from the flagship shop in Mount Lawley to two more locations in Victoria Park and Wembley. The owners prefer all three sites to be crowded with people rather than with decorative ornaments, so the Modus Coffee aesthetic is clean and modern with polished concrete, simple white tiles, and wooden cabinetry.

“Our coffee, offered as espresso or filter, pairs well with our house made brekky burger or our customer favourite Reuben sandwich. Our cabinet food is made for those on-the-go, easy and simple options to get our customers out the door and on their way to enjoy a great day,” says Abbey.
