Established in 2005, Pioneer Coffee Roastery was one of the first small batch specialty coffee roasters on the Sunshine Coast. While the speciality coffee industry has changed significantly since then, Pioneer has stayed true to their primary objective – to carefully and consistently roast the best coffee we find. Our passion is our product, and we strive every day to bring the best results we can to your cup.
Our team of roasters and baristas are constantly updating their skills, making sure they keep up to date with industry knowledge and trends on everything from water quality, coffee crop conditions, to the latest equipment and tools.
With a focus on sustainability, we are constantly reviewing our procedures to ensure we are reducing waste and encouraging others to do so. We encourage reusable cups and straws, and offer a discount for those customers that bring their own (we are a Responsible Cafes member).
Where ever we can, we source our materials locally. From Maleny Dairies milk, to Noosa Meats in our toasties, honey produced right here in Yandina, to hand-crafted Redraku ceramic coffee cups - we are local, and support local production.
We are also proud to collaborate with White's IGA's Locavores program.
It is important to us to give back to our community where-ever we can. Throughout the year we contribute wherever we can to local schools and charities.
One of the highlights of our fundraising activities is the annual CafeSmart day - on Cafesmart day, participating cafes across the country donate $1 for every coffee sold, and encourage customers to match their donation. The goal is to raise money for the StreetSmart organisation, who are on a mission to end homelessness. The money collected on the day is distributed by StreetSmart to local organisations.
Not only does our cafe participate, we are a roaster partner and encourage the cafes we supply to sign up as well. If you would like to find out more about CafeSmart, please let us know!
