Hunt and Brew to launch Australia’s first cold-brew coffee from local beans

Boutique coffee maker Hunt and Brew will use coffee beans sourced from Northern Queensland to make Australia’s first cold-brew coffee.

The company has entered into an agreement with Howe Farming Group to source at least 10 tonnes of local specialty grade Arabica coffee beans annually.

Northern Queensland is an ideal destination for producing pesticide-free coffee beans due to the absence of major pests and diseases. Through this move, the business becomes one of the largest buyers of Australian-grown coffee beans. 

“Certainly the pandemic has prompted Australian businesses and consumers to source locally. We set ourselves a challenge to hunt for Australian coffee beans, and we were ecstatic to discover world-class coffee beans being grown in our own backyard,” said Emily Creer, senior brand manager. 

Lang Juckes, Woolworths category manager – chilled milk, said the retailer is delighted to be able to offer customers an Australian-first locally sourced cold brew coffee.

“Australians love iced coffee and we know there is a big market for people that want a cold brew that delivers on the cafe experience,” he said.

The Hunt and Brew Australia Single Origin cold brew coffee will be sold across Woolworths stores nationwide from this week.
