TURNING POINT COFFEE
Turning Point Coffee is a small batch coffee roastery located in Whangarei, New Zealand. It was founded in 2007 by Stu Hargie, who is a passionate coffee roaster and advocate for sustainability. Turning Point Coffee sources its coffee beans from small, independent farmers who practice sustainable agriculture. The coffee is roasted in small batches to ensure freshness and quality.
Our green beans come direct from growers or through certified organic farms, so we know where they’re coming from and who’s getting paid what. It’s about fairness really – and we’re not interested in anything less.
NO WASTE PACKAGING
Our ultimate goal is re-use, it’s how we supply cafes and how you can genuinely access zero-waste premium coffee. We have implemented a barrel exchange system with Brewed As to remove the need of single use or compostable bags
Roasted fresh daily on one of the most advanced small batch roasters using infra-red elements, so no gas equals less emissions.
