Coffee capital

With cafes on almost every corner, it’s fair to say we love our coffee in Wellington. And the rest of the world agrees, with CNN recently naming us one of the top 8 international coffee destinations.

Where to try locally roasted coffee


If you're on a mission to find some of the world's best coffee, here are a few of the best places to get some of the local roasts.

Hand-made with love


From the oven to the cup is the critical step in delivering you a great coffee. This is the domain of the Wellington barista.

Get to know the barista at your local café, and you’ll soon find your regular order underway as soon as you walk in the door.
