Sydney-based roaster Seven Miles will soon open a part coffee shop-part roastery at Craft’d Grounds in Albion, where visitors can watch the roasting process whilst enjoying their coffee.
Seven Miles, now supplying to more than 100 coffee shops and cafes across the state, will also offer coffee masterclasses, public tastings, and new ways of brewing in their new Brissie space which will feature a warehouse space, roasting area, as well as a retail section and kiosk.
Built with ceiling-high glass walls and an open seating plan, the 400-sqm roastery allows a completely immersive and transparent experience, where coffee lovers can come and witness a speciality roaster in action. Heading up the operation within Craft’d Grounds will be Ben Graham who joined the company earlier this year after having previously owned local Brisbane favourite, Parallel Roasters.
Seven Miles roastery in Albion promises drinkers something new to try and will pour many other specialty varieties that will be roasted on-site. Aside from the traditional espresso, customers can have cold press and batch brews made using Seraphim, a unique brewing system that can make single cups of handcrafted coffee in minutes.
Once everything is up and running, the team at Seven Miles would try to collaborate on drinks with other new tenancies at Craft’d Grounds, including craft beer brewery Brewtide and an upcoming wine and cocktail bar. Due to open in October 2021, the precinct will also be home to patisserie, fromagerie and fitness facility.
A former timber mill, Craft’d Grounds is planning to host exciting events for locals, including a regular farmers market and a street-art lined laneway. The precinct will have enough capacity for various live music and food events.
