Typika Artisan Roasters

Perth is seeing an explosion of new coffee businesses, both in the café and coffee roasting sectors. A new concept that has graced the west coast suburb of Claremont is Typika Artisan Coffee roasters.
This was not an overnight setup; it was 10 years in the making for the entrepreneurial Kenyon family. Father John and siblings Stephen and Rachel have all been part of this well planned venture. Stephen started the quest buying a run down café eight years ago and developed it into a multi store operation called Cimbalino, that turns over thousands of coffees a day. Stephen taught himself the art of being a barista when no one would take him on by setting up an old espresso machine in his dad’s shed. Rachel also had a stint in the corporate coffee world, with a management role at Dome Coffee.
The Typika fitout includes a café and full kitchen, a roasting plant, a training room and a warehouse space. The café sees hundreds of visitors coming through the operation daily for breakfast and lunch. The Typika team are well versed in café operations, and they are recieving rave reviews about their café menu.
I had to visit twice in my short stay in Perth just to try something else on the menu. The Slow Cooked Beef Brisket Benedict won me over, especially with the Harissa Hollandaise over perfect poached eggs.
John and Stephen are both very particular in all facets of their business, and they have invested a lot of time and money into getting the coffee side of the business right. They have purchased a roasting plant from Proaster in Korea and have coupled it to the latest technology in coffee roasting science. The coffees they are producing are remarkable, along with some great packaging and a strong sales team headed up by Rachael.
The café/roasting house has become a must visit for anyone who’s anyone in coffee in the west, and it is extraordinarily busy for a six month old operation. The Kenyon family are pushing the envelope in specialty coffee in Perth, and they have a big future in that marketplace. The operation is getting lots of interest from many cafés in Western Australia for full coffee support, especially in blend design and high-end barista training.
If you are in the café and coffee industry and visiting Perth, then Typika should be on your café crawl … and don’t go past the breakfast menu.

Open: 7 days from 7am to 4pm.
