About Us

Having been part of the global coffee industry and heavily involved in food science, development and manufacturing since 1991, we embarked on the project of buidling a state-of-the-art coffee roasting facility in 2012.

We aim to become Australia's preferred coffee roasting partner to those organisations who value their own brand, the importance of selling consistently great quality coffee, and who require a supply partner who knows and respects the responsilities for delivery in-full on-time and to locations as required.

We strive to offer a customer-oriented product which means that our customer's preferences and requirements always come first. Whether this be in our customer's choice of blend, their packing format or logistics requirements, our first responsibility is to provide what our customer desires.

We manage the balance of science and art in coffee production and ensure that sound green coffee sourcing, production practices and philosophies form the basis of our expert roasters' skill. In conjunction with the use of the highest quality roasting systems, our roasters are able to make their judgement on the perfect roasting conditions and end-points. With every roasted batch being analysed for overall organoleptics, pH and water activity we have absolute confidence in everything we produce.

At AESP we have a very simple philosophy, which is to create coffees to suit each unique customer, roast every batch maintaining absolute consistency in quality and profile, and get it all delivered to our customer at a great price . Our customers' expectations guide our standards and we offer true partnership opportunities in coffee development and supply. When working with AESP you can be certain that the highest standards you expect in coffee supply are our main concern.

Who Is AESP?

We are a contract coffee roaster and our customers and their brands are our primary concern. Our beans are sourced and blended by World Barista Judge, Justin Metcalf, who has over 10 years experience judging at the top levels Internationally, and has been in the coffee industry over 25 years. Supported by Duncan Jamieson , a highly-experienced Food Scientist/Technologist, with degrees in Applied Science and Marketing, together they have built a truly innovative and unique coffee company.

Our Culture

First and foremost, we have aimed to create a workplace culture that employees enjoy being a part of. We want all of our employees to be excited to be apart of our company and team, and excited to come to work with us everyday. Our employees are able to be involved in decision making, and keeping our customers satisfied. We are lucky to have such high quality, intelligent staff that are motivated to do their best and enthusiastic about keeping customers satisfied. Our employee satisfaction is reflected by the products that they produce, the quality of the coffee beans, packaging and logistics. We encourage and strive for our employees to be comfortable in the AESP environment, as it benefits themselves, the quality of work they produce and ultimately our customers.
