Situated in the Gold Coast, Paradox Coffee Roasters Café provides customers with a unique coffee experience with its on-site roastery, coffee lab and training academy.
“Paradox Coffee Roasters set out to provide a deeper coffee experience for both café and wholesale customers with our onsite roastery and coffee lab,” says James Rodger, Sales Director of Paradox Coffee Roasters.
“Our customers can talk to the people who source, roast and serve our coffee. We always find it exciting to build people’s knowledge on the journey coffee takes from farm to cup.”
The Aussie roaster opened its flagship in 2015 and continues to delight locals with its exceptional coffee, delicious food, and a strong commitment to origin, traceability, and sustainability.
“We ensure every coffee served to our customers not only is on point but represents the farmers and roasting team,” James says.
“We also love being part of the local Gold Coast community, not only serving freshly roasted coffee daily but supporting local charities like Oz Harvest.”
The flagship café offers customers all four Paradox blends – Paper Moon, Penny Lane, Purple Rain Organic and Picasso Baby – alongside that month’s single origin line-up.
The space is designed to showcase the coffee making process. Customers can take a front row seat at the café’s U-shaped coffee bar to watch skilled baristas behind the espresso machine.
“Witnessing our baristas pull a perfectly timed shot and pour showcases the passion our team has for delivering exceptional coffee,” says Paradox Café Manager Jason Degasperi.
“We offer a full range of coffee experiences including espresso, filter and cold brew. We also love experimenting and having fun with drinks and have created our very own Nuttellatte and Salted-Caramel Iced Latte in addition to our Paradox Cold Brew which are brewed and bottled onsite.”
Paradox Coffee Roasters Café café also offers a full range of whole bean blends and origins produced by its roastery to give guests the opportunity to buy fresh-roasted, sustainable-sourced coffee.
The same passion for quality coffee is reflected in the food menu, sourcing ingredients from local providores. A new online ordering platform provides the convenience for customers to order food and coffee from their table.
“We recommend kicking off the morning with Paradox Breakfast Tacos with scrambled eggs, chorizo, salsa verde, and chilli relish or if you have a sweet tooth the Apple and Blueberry Waffles with almond coconut crumble and salted caramel ice cream,” Jason says.
“If you need to keep it healthy the house made Acai Granola Bowl, or for lunch the Buddha Bowl, are delicious, and all are prepared by our in-house chefs.”
Located in an industrial bus terminal, the café has soaring ceilings with a gentrified warehouse feel. A large-scale mural created by local artist Vans The Omega is a central feature.
“Being located next to a large commercial building means we often attract young professionals for coffee and lunch along with locals and tourists of all ages,” Jason says.
“Paradox Coffee Roasters are ‘For The People’ and this is demonstrated by our loyal customers that visit us daily.”
