Chances are you’ve heard of the talented Jibbi Little, Australia’s current Latte Art champion. If not, we suggest you drop everything you’re doing right now and go watch a few videos of her in action!
Jibbi’s been in the Sydney coffee scene since moving over from Thailand in 2006. She was working part-time at a cafe while studying when she discovered her love for latte art.
Her passion for coffee led her to becoming a highly regarded barista, latte art specialist, Q-grader competition judge, and now an award winning coffee roaster. She also designed and founded the popular JIBBIJUG milk pitchers that help you craft beautiful latte art at home. Jibbi’s diverse coffee background has given her the perfect skill set for roasting her own top-notch blends and single origins out of her Sydney roastery.
Australia’s Queen of Latte Art may be new to the roasting scene but her multi-award winning coffee sure does pack a punch. Jibbi ventured into the world of roasting on a mission to introduce new and exciting flavours to the market. Unique coffee beans have been sourced from micro-lot farms, in places like Tanzania and Brazil, to make things interesting.
Her obsession with quality is apparent in everything she sets out to do. It makes sense that her mission is “to serve a coffee roasted with great care and to achieve the perfect balance of flavours. Sweetness, clarity, and texture in a cup with great mouthfeel.” We can all get on board with that!
“Judging coffee competitions is a great way to set my roasting standard to the highest level.” — Jibbi Little
Jibbi has chosen two brilliant coffees for you to enjoy this month. One is an espresso blend and the other is a single origin for our filter lovers. Get ready to experience some truly magical cups of coffee!

The name “Magic” comes from the reaction of customers once they take their first sip of this magical espresso blend. The beans were sourced from Tanzania and Brazil to create a truly special brew. With notes of tropical fruit, caramel, and chocolate - you really can’t go wrong with this gem.
