Introducing Kiwanda Café

Nestled within the beating heart of Zarraffa’s Coffee headquarters, in a reclaimed commercial warehouse on Distillery Road in Eagleby, Kiwanda Café is a brand-new factory concept café, brought to you by Zarraffa’s Coffee.

Swahili for ‘factory’, Kiwanda is the culmination of a two decade-long love affair with our daily grind; personifying the specialty coffee learnings of Founder Kenton Campbell while serving up epicurean delights for all tastes.

Mr Campbell believes Kiwanda will deliver a new coffee and dining experience for Queensland’s south-east, distilling Zarraffa’s twenty years of specialty coffee knowledge into a new bespoke dining experience, designed as a space to discover, explore, share and connect.

“It’s the opportunity of a lifetime for me,” said Mr Campbell, who opened his first Zarraffa’s Coffee store in 1996.

“Delivering an exceptional coffee product has always been at the core of the Zarraffa’s business but Kiwanda is an extension of that; combining a passion for pairing food with specialty coffee elements, all housed within a one-of-a-kind venue.”

Located midway between Brisbane and the Gold Coast, Kiwanda is a multi-zoned space with its signature fireplace and vaulted ceilings that take in views through the 4-metre-high glass windows into an Australian coffee-making engine room – the Zarraffa’s Coffee Roastery.

Also, enfolding the Kiwanda dining and beverage offering will be a Roastery Tour experience set for opening later this year; designed to educate and inform visitors about the Zarraffa’s Coffee bean-to-cup journey, through a visual and sensory encounter that explores the intricacies of the coffee world.

“Our Tour experience invites visitors to explore and understand the entire coffee journey, from crop to cup. It speaks to our relationships with coffee growing communities across the world, and just what it takes to produce the ‘liquid gold’ we have come to enjoy every day.”

Kiwanda Café is made up of an Espresso Bar specifically for beverages and light snacks, and the Kiwanda Kitchen and Bar that presents a range of gastronomical offerings and complementary beverages, including the signature Espresso Martini.

“Our Espresso Bar serves up the entire Zarraffa’s drink menu and more,” said Mr Campbell.

“We have taken what people know and love about Zarraffa’s and infused it with our authentic understanding of coffee; employing a range of coffee-making methodology and extraction methods to create a new range of beverage offerings to enjoy.”

From Cold Drip to Cold Brew and Nitro to Pour Over Coffee, Kiwanda has developed a range of distinct and delicious flavours through its unique piccolo air roasting facility.

“What’s also exciting is our ability to roast premium single origins, micro lot, estate and regional coffee beans from right around the world, which will be available at different times throughout the year to enjoy onsite or to take home.”

Kiwanda Café hones a strong passion for creating a dining, entertaining and connected experience like no other. The Kiwanda kitchen menu caters for breakfast and lunch and offers a range of inviting snacks, referencing home-style dishes and offerings with a myriad of flavours that are designed to be enjoyed by everyone, including those with dietary restrictions.

“Simple, tasty and delightfully presented dishes are a staple of Kiwanda and we have options for diners looking for gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan and dairy-free choices,” said Mr Campbell. “It is about offering a satisfying dining experience through a curated range of options, designed to please all tastes.

From the quintessential all-day staple of Smashed Avo, to the heathy Goddess Dressed Seasonal Green Bowl, or more filling options such as the Southern Fried Chicken BurgerPork Belly with Mixed Greens or the KC Burger, diners will be tempted to try a new take on Eggs Benedict the Shed Bennie and the beautifully presented and irresistible Berry Leige Waffles – Kiwanda is sure to satisfy.

The Kiwanda Bar is a fully licensed venue that is designed to transform for a wide of functions and events.

“It’s in the details, such as our longstanding partnership with Burleigh Brewing, that highlights our intent with Kiwanda to create a local focus,” he said.

“Working with an award-winning producer to showcase an inspired collaboration, including the award-winning Black Giraffebeer, is what we want Kiwanda visitors to find joy in, each and every time they visit.”

“Kiwanda is a full 360-degree, specialty coffee immersion that our customers are free to enjoy in their own way; through a simple cup of coffee, a take away snack or a shared meal, a delightful tipple with workmates or spending time on our tours learning about the intricacies of the coffee-making process.”

“Every part of Kiwanda Café is designed to harvest a deeper sense of enjoyment of specialty coffee, right here in our own backyard.”

Kiwanda Café is located at 124 Distillery Road, Eagleby QLD 4207.

Opening hours: 6am – 5pm, seven days a week.

New Dual Drive Thru in Brisbane Suburbs for Zarraffa’s

Zarraffa’s has opened the doors to a new dual drive thru located in the north Brisbane community of Hendra.

The new dual lane drive thru will provide customers with a shorter wait time and an easy entry and exit at any time of the day, catering for all people on the go, such as parents, workers and travellers.

The store is situated along the busy vehicular strip, connecting Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast and close to Brisbane airport, servicing the major suburbs of Ascot, Hamilton, Eagle Farms, Albion, Nundah and Hendra.

Run by an experienced franchisee group, who have spent the past 13 years operating a number of Zarraffa’s store locations on the Gold Coast – in Palm Beach, Chatswood Road and Helensvale (Westfield) and two drive thrus in Tugun and Ferry Road – the Hendra store will be ready to welcome coffee lovers from day one.

“It has been an amazing 13 years so far as part of the Zarraffa’s family,” said franchisee, Hemal Keniya.

“The constant help and support over the years has allowed us to expand our footprint into the Brisbane area and we couldn’t be more thrilled to bring great coffee to such a busy part of north Brisbane.”

Zarraffa’s will employ over 20 locals, backed by an experienced management team, to run the new Hendra store, as they work to deliver exceptional customer service with a friendly smile and the perfect cup of coffee.

“Our experience has taught us about the importance of providing excellent customer service and product, especially in the faster pace drive thru environment,” said Hemal.

“We are really excited to deliver customers a fantastic experience when passing through our new dual lane drive thru.”

CEO of Zarraffa’s Coffee, Marnie Sheldon, said that while the location is an important component when opening a new drive thru, it is equally important that the store is managed by a team of highly trained professionals who strive for success.

“Hemal and his team have come such a long way since opening their first store back in 2006,” said Marnie.

“Hendra is located in the vicinity of major roads servicing over 100,000 cars each day, and it will be their strong franchise experience that will ensure the new dual lane drive thru experience is a success.”

Zarraffa’s Coffee Hendra is located at Shop 3, 100 East West Arterial Rd, Hendra, QLD 4011.

Opening hours: 5am – 10pm, seven days a week.

Zarraffa’s Coffee Hits 90th Store Milestone

Home grown success story, specialty coffee retailer Zarraffa’s Coffee, has delivered its third store opening in almost as many weeks, in the Brisbane suburb of Deception Bay.

Operating since 1996, the Deception Bay opening brings the privately-owned company’s total number of sites to 90, now operating across Queensland, Western Australia and New South Wales in a variety of standalone café-style and drive thru locations.

The new Deception Bay drive thru is situated within 30 minutes’ drive from the Brisbane CBD; perfect for locals wanting to grab a delicious cup of coffee on their way to and from work.

Zarraffa’s CEO, Marnie Sheldon, said Deception Bay is a key location for the Queensland-based company as it bridges the gap between Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast with more stores.

“We have long enjoyed excellent patronage from customers in both the north of Brisbane in areas such as Mango Hill and further north at Morayfield and beyond,” said Ms Sheldon.

“90 stores have taken time to build, ensuring we grow steadily via a strong network of financially healthy businesses, while still delivering an excellent product and service proposition company-wide.” Zarraffa’s will employ over 30 locals to run and manage the store who will handcraft Zarraffa’s much-loved beverages and tasty treats, within the locale.

“There are a variety of options to choose from, beginning with our new Fruit Smoothies that are a recent addition to our Breakfast Smoothie range, plus all the usual favourites people have come to love,” she added.

Similar to a large number of Zarraffa’s stores, Deception Bay will be open from 5am to 10pm, 7 days a week ensuring access to quality coffee at the most important times of the day.

“We’ve just opened our first store in greater Sydney and what we are noticing is how customers, no matter where they live, respond well to our convenient and tasty options across the day. It’s about being accessible when our customers most want access to great coffee.”

“Our Deception Bay store is convenient for those wanting to quickly pick up a coffee on their way to work in the morning or dine in and enjoy a relaxing drink and a tasty treat during the afternoon. Evenings, snacks and more – we’ve got your covered, now in 90 locations.”

Zarraffa’s Coffee Deception Bay (Drive Thru) is located 1-45 Bay Ave, Deception Bay QLD 4508 Opening hours: 5am – 10pm, seven days a week
