Our Coffee Story

A freshly ground moment of happiness with every cup

Otto Espresso is our locally roasted, award winning, hand selected blend of beans that combines single origins from the finest estates in Brazil, Ethiopia, India and Colombia.

Trained in the art of pouring the perfect coffee

Our gold medal winning training program has been developed by baristas, for baristas.

Just ask our Barista of the Year, Amy-Lea Hovey. She’s still perfecting her latte art across the west of Melbourne at our Hoppers Crossing, Point Cook & Sanctuary Lakes stores.

There are so many other quality baristas in our network, like Christie Hoffman from Somerville, a finalist in our Barista of the Year competition for 5 years in a row, and a winner on more than one occasion.

Coffee that bakes the world a better place

We’re always on the lookout for opportunities to reduce our environmental footprint which is why we make sure that our partners are doing the right thing as well. This means choosing to partner with coffee plantations who offer great quality, sustainable coffee.

These partners focus on ensuring maximum efficiency of all resources, including:

  • Reducing effluent generation by 50%
  • Converting their effluent into compost
  • Reducing their consumption of electricity by 80% using only LED lighting

Plarre’s Finest Blend of Beans

Otto’s Espresso is a medium to dark roast that teases all the flavours out from the beans, giving us a consistently delicious coffee.

When creating Otto’s Espresso, our coffee connoisseurs took their time to create the finest blend of beans, ensuring that every cup of coffee offers a great balance of flavour sensations from all around the world.
