2018 marked a statement of intent for us, to ensure that people growing exceptional coffee are still doing so in decades to come.
We started publishing the price we pay to producers exposing the traceability they deserve and discerning drinkers' demand as the new norm. We refer to the most direct payment as ‘Farmgate’.
We’re proud we can publish this for our single origins and house blends.
Seven Seeds has been involved with the Speciality Coffee Transaction Guide as data donors for the past five years. We have signed 'The Pledge', a commitment to transparency in coffee trading.
We also share this information in our Annual Impact Report.
We roast Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Place your order by 7:00 am AEST on a roasting day to have your coffee shipped the next day (Monday-Thursday). Orders placed between Friday 7:00 am through Monday 7:00 am will be roasted Monday and sent Tuesday.
We offer Standard and Express shipping via Australia Post. Orders over $120 include free Standard shipping (AU only, $160 for NT).
The Roastery and Head Office are closed on weekends and public holidays; we do not roast or ship these days.

ORIGIN: Pitalito, Huila, Colombia
VARIETAL: Pink Bourbon
PROCESS: Fully Washed
ALTITUDE: 1750 masl
HARVEST: October to December
PRODUCER: Willyan Rojas Zambrano
RELATIONSHIP: Second year of purchasing
ORIGIN PARTNER: Caravela
The team here at Seven Seeds is over the moon to welcome Willyan Zambrano back to the menu once again. It was one of our favourite releases last year, proving to be a dream to roast and drink. This lot is straight out of Pitalito, Hulia, where Willyan and his wife, Maria Esther Lopez, produce exquisite coffees on their farm La Montañita. Most of what they grow is Pink Bourbon. Last year, we put forward that pink bourbon was a natural mutation between red and yellow bourbon, and believed it to be recessive and unstable, meaning that it was hard to grow consistently without careful cultivation. However, we learned that this might not be the case.
The variety is native to Huila. The producer who discovered it noticed the cherry ripened with a pink tonality, and the trees had similarities to the Bourbon varietal. Recent scientific research has shown that the tree bears more genetic resemblance to Ethiopia landrace and is uniquely its own varietal. Slightly less mysterious, definitely still romantic and undeniably a beautiful lot.
A continued focus for our sourcing team was to reestablish our presence with producers in Colombia. We aim to strengthen relationships with producer groups we have used in the past and identify producers with whom we could establish long-term exclusive partnerships. Our goal is to commit to a certain amount of AA/AAA grade coffee from La Montañita each harvest. In the short term, we are putting in place a retail pricing structure that will allow us to make a direct financial contribution to Willyan and Marie on top of the price we pay to our origin sourcing
partners, Caravela. This payment would serve as a gesture of appreciation for the quality of these lots and our growing relationship with Willyan.
