Cool Hand Coffee is a truly honest coffee brand roasting here in Melbourne. We want you to feel connected to the people who grow and pick your beans. The coolest hands of all are the ones that do the work: the hands who farm and give life to this amazing elixir we all love, the hands that we sometimes take for granted. At cool hand we want to give the credit back where it belongs. The hands that feed us tell the most powerful stories. You may not ever see our faces, you may never know who we are, but we will share every step of this journey we take with you and shed light on the true heroes of this industry so that when we finally get that cup of liquid gold in our hands, we can trace it back to fair prices for our farming partners, sustainable practices, the most amazing stories, and of course some killer beans (promise). We will continue to put these stories here and try and connect you as closely as possible to the legends who did the work, the more we know, the better we can be.
