Zarraffa's Coffee

Zarraffa's Coffee, established in 1996, was originally a roasting house operating from the backstreets of Southport on the Gold Coast.

Back then customers would come in for their daily coffee and enjoy a fresh brew perched on a hessian bag full of green coffee beans yet to be roasted by founder and CEO, Kenton Campbell.

Kenton's dream was for Zarraffa's Coffee to become Australia’s premium coffee provider, knocking the competition out of the water with an exceptional product and service guarantee.

From one store, the proudly Australian-owned company has grown into a franchise operation that is synonymous with convenient, quality coffee that is tailor-made for each customer consistently across each store.

With a drink menu offering a delicious choice of hot or cold beverages, Zarraffa’s has also introduced a growing new range of scrumptious food options.

With over 70 stores across Queensland, northern NSW and Western Australia, customers can enjoy their favourite coffee, both dining in store or on-the-go at a drive thru.
