1959 - Beginnings

The two founding Italian partners saw the rise of coffee and the decline of tea as European migrants brought the culture of espresso bars to Melbourne.Coffex Coffee Roasters was founded due to the high demand for better quality coffee and started as a small operation with no more than ten staff.
1996 - In New Hands
The mid-nineties saw a change in management, with new owners taking over the company. Through the late nineties, into the early 2000’s, Coffex Coffee Roasters as a company experienced considerable growth.
