Our Roastery is located in Lumsden, a small town in the heart of Southland...


 Our brand epitomizes our way of life. Having hailed from the far North in 2009 we have embraced
Southland wholeheartedly and are so proud to call it home. Much like the introduced Red Deer
of Fiordland, its an easy place to do so.

Southland is home to good people. People who work hard, love their land and generations that never leave. ROAR COFFEE pays homage to these folk. The cold hard winters, the beautiful long hot dry summers...
and the life that is lived with tenacity, loyalty and passion.

Life and 'a way of life' is celebrated in the Deep South. Everything is something...Whitebaiting Season...
Duck Shooting Weekends...and the famous Stag ROAR!

Our vision was to create a business that supports the ethos of ethical supply, transparency and quality; to us encompassing the Southland lifestyle. Hard graft, integrity and great things come from Southland.

And now we bring you coffee...good coffee, stuff and things.

We don’t want to get too fancy. There are enough Specialty Coffee Roasters doing a wonderful job of that. 
We want to celebrate our locals and be locals. We want you ROARING too!

We want to keep it simple, encourage people's passion for coffee, help you understand
where it comes from and the many different stages of life it has from crop to cup. We support locals and locals support us...Enjoy your cup of Southland!
