Let’s dive deeper into 2021 with Wood and Co, bringing us their fan-favourite and delicious espresso blend, KARMA, alongside a brand spanking new single origin roast that really packs a punch.
With 2020 in the rear view mirror, and the possibilities of the New Year coming into full view, we’re ready to explore some new flavours while simultaneously being comforted by delicious flavours from the past. This is where the rock stars at Brunswick, Victoria based Wood and Co come into their own, bringing us two exciting coffees – one we know and love and the other we’re pretty damn excited to discover.
We’ve featured the coffee rebels over at Wood and Co a few times in the past, and safe to say we’re massive fans of their handiwork. Led by former punk rocker and coffee expert, Aaron Wood, this is a hard working group of passionate coffee fanatics who pay close attention to quality and where their coffees come from. Wood and Co attracts a cult following, from locals to enthusiasts from across the country, many who drop by their Brunswick roastery to sip on new and exciting roasts and catch-up with the crew.
2021 is an exciting year for Wood and Co. They’re currently renovating their roasting facility, making it even bigger and better. The team is also bringing on a brand new roaster and plan on opening a retail shop later this year. If you’re in the area, make sure you drop by and say “hey” to the talented gang in person!
“We’re excited to be upgrading our roast facility with a new roaster and making it bigger and better. Plus we’re planning on opening a refurbished retail space later in the year so stay tuned for more details!” — Aaron Wood, founder of Wood and Co Coffee
