Who are Matakana Coffee Roasters?
Obsessed with coffee since the late 1980s, when co-founder Lindesay Smith took a year out to chill on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii. He went for the surf, but fell in love with the coffee, learning his craft as understudy to a master roaster at the renowned ‘Coffee Gallery’ in the historic beachside town of Haleiwa.
Back home in 1989, Lindesay was one of the pioneers of the New Zealand coffee scene, inviting Kiwis to put down that cup-of-instant and embrace the espresso, long black and flat white. He founded the Sierra chain of cafes with the first branch on Jervois Road, Ponsonby, Auckland, introducing customers to the fine art of coffee roasting.
Lindesay’s award-winning velvety smooth signature roast went on to win numerous awards and inspired the Village Market blend we still produce today: a medium-dark roast with flavours of rich dark chocolate, stone fruit and hazelnut.
