We are a local coffee roaster focusing on exceptional quality coffee blends and Limited Edition single origin offerings. Utilizing traditional coffee roasting methods honed in Italy at the turn of the century, Barocco Coffee Company strikes a balance between those important past traditions and today’s latest technological advances, always through the lens of an artisanal approach.
Rather than restricting ourselves by focusing only on cooperatives, fair trade or single origins, we approach our sourcing with an open mind; searching the globe to find the best available coffee beans while ensuring we always work with ethical and sustainable farms. We are particularly proud of our Direct Trade relationships with farms in Brazil and Colombia.
Inspired by the relentless passion of our founder Nunzio Tumino, the coat of arms on each of our packages honours the quality of the coffee beans inside them. We invite you to share in our passion.

Barocco’s Direct Trade
Direct trade is a term used by coffee roasters who buy straight from the growers, cutting out both the traditional middleman buyers and sellers and also the organizations that control certifications such as Fair Trade and Bird friendly, for example.
Direct trade proponents say their model is the best because they build mutually beneficial and respectful relationships with individual producers or cooperatives in the coffee-producing countries. Some roasters do it because they are dissatisfied with the third-party certification programs, while others want to have more control over aspects ranging from the quality of the coffee, to social issues, or environmental concerns.
Barocco Coffee Company purchases its two most prevalent bean species using the Direct Trade model, from Brazil and Colombia
Barocco has a range of premium loose leaf tea and wellness blends as well. These are imported from the finest, ethical tea gardens in the world.
