“It just tastes better”

Locally owned and made right here in New Zealand. Tuatara Coffee is all that. Our coffee is fair traded and we batch roast to ensure freshness and bold flavour.

Now available New Zealand wide for you to savour at home and also to the wholesale market – retailers, hospitality and accommodation industries.

Tuatara Coffee also supports a true living dinosaur that only resides in New Zealand, the Tuatara.


Coffee with a Cause

The Tuatara is the most primitive reptile in existence – a true living dinosaur, found only in New Zealand.

We donate to Tuatara conservation and are proud sponsors of the West Coast Wildlife Trust and Natureland Trust, Nelson.


Our Beans and Blends

We use a wide range of raw beans including fair traded and organic beans from South America, Asia and Africa.

We cater to all styles and believe we have a blend to suit every market. We have developed five blends as well as having single origins available and are constantly striving to develop our product range.

Tuatara Coffee comes in various sized bags and in sachets. Available as Beans or Ground for Plunger, Filter or Expresso.

Our Story

Tuatara Coffee came to life in 2008 in beautiful Golden Bay, top of the South Island. Then from 2011 we moved not too far away to a wee place called Hope.

We supply cafés from Franz Josef in the South through to Farewell Spit in the West and Blenheim in the East with over thirty outlets in Nelson and Tasman. We also pack and supply 20 gram sachets of premium plunger ground coffee for over 300 motels and hotels across New Zealand.
