Ozone Coffee Roasters

In a former warehouse in the Auckland suburb of Grey Lynn, Ozone Coffee Roasters’ new eatery and roastery combines industrial elements with a warm, hospitable feel. Creative Director James Gurr says this creates a space that morphs throughout the day.  “We had been seeking the right opportunity to have an Auckland presence for some time. We wanted to find the right place and although it took longer than we expected, the space we found in Grey Lynn was just the spot, within a community we couldn’t wait to be a part of,” James says. “It’s a leafy suburb, a stone’s throw away from Central Auckland and Ponsonby Road. It’s busy but relaxed at the same time, and there’s a sense of discovery in finding our spot which our customers love.”
