Roastery for Hire

What is it?

Want to start a micro-roastery but don’t have a roaster of your own? Don’t let that stop you from chasing your dreams with Roasting Studio’s Roastery for Hire. With this option you’ll have access to our Joper 15kg roaster, green house coffees and pre-batched micro-lots, and warehouse storage where you can store the coffees you’ve sourced yourself. Book a time online or set a reoccurring appointment- the roaster will be hot and ready to go when you arrive, and we'll handle the clean-down and maintenance when you leave. Just come in and roast, we’ll take care of the machine maintenance.


After using the Roasting Studio's Remote Roastery service for 12 months, local coffee shop owner Ezra has decided to become a little more involved in the process. Their coffee shop, Liquified Seed, has been growing steadily, and Alex feels as though they can dedicate a day each week to take the roasting of their coffee into their own hands and create their own coffee roastery. After connecting with green suppliers through the Roasting Studio network, and using the set-up in place, Ezra orders and roasts their own green samples, selects a Brazilian regional blend for their house coffee, and negotiates their own pricing direct with the supplier. Once they place an order for green, it then gets delivered to the storage facility in Bayswater. Ezra organises a transfer of their coffee to the shared roasting space through the Roasting Studio website. Ezra receives an invoice from the Roasting Studio for the roasting fee of the coffee which has just been transferred. Each week, Ezra books in a time at the Roasting Studio, and when they arrive, the roaster is clean, hot, and ready to roast. They roast the batches they need for the week, and as they pack their retail bags and do a little QC, the staff at the Studio clean and cool down the roastery. Ezra then comes back the following week to do it all again.
