This small town roastery is more than just a locals’ favourite. The team at Motobean are serious about coffee and their fame has spread far and wide. Their unique blends set them apart from their big roastery counterparts and their ongoing top priority is to source better coffee than ever before.

Once upon a time Motobean Coffee Roasters was a well kept secret in the small town of Malmsbury, Victoria, serving up delicious food and even more delicious freshly roasted coffee. When the secret got out that this local cafe really took the craft of roasting coffee to the next level, the Motobean that we know and love today really took off. 

It’s been a couple of years since we’ve checked in with Motobean and boy have things changed! Their operations have greatly expanded. They’re sourcing better coffee than ever before and developing exotic blends that make specialty coffee connoisseurs swoon as well as passionate home baristas. 

Ever since they’ve taken it up a notch you can see Motobean scattered around venues in Melbourne – with city-siders craving a cup of their beautiful blended coffee in the morning. This country town roastery may be spreading its wings but don’t worry, Motobean still has the soul of a small town business that’s obsessed with their craft. Enjoy their two unique roasts this month and make sure you continue to follow their journey. We can’t wait to see what they get up to next!
