Short Street Coffee Roasters is built on the foundation of friendship, history, family connection and the passion to provide that great cup of coffee. Scott Jones and Kevin Crouse have never been neighbours, but they have discussed moving into the same suburb often. They come from opposite sides of the bridge (rather than tracks). They both believe in community and that is revealed in this newest project of theirs, they say, “everyone knows each other in a short street.” Coffee is all about relationship and connecting friends as well as strangers around a common table. Scott has been in the Sydney coffee scene for the past 35 years and Kevin was born in the coffee capital of the United States, Seattle Washington. They first met when Kevin became a customer of Scott’s acclaimed Australian Independent Roasters (AIR Coffee) to supply the widely known and missed Mars Hill café in Parramatta. In 2012 they joined company and rebranded Scott’s successful project as Black Drum Roasters. During this it became clear to café customers that they were committed to relationship and great coffee. Never ones to stand still or be satisfied with the status quo they have chosen to focus on what they do best, build a family of people who love coffee. Whether you provide coffee for others, make it at home (or on the road), or grow it at origin, they want to be part of your neighbourhood and want you to be part of their family.
