OMAR AND THE MARVELLOUS COFFEE BIRD IS A BOUTIQUE COFFEE ROASTER, WHOLESALER, CAFÉ AND RETAIL OUTLET BASED IN THE TINY BAYSIDE SUBURB OF GARDENVALE, MELBOURNE.
Omar’s was created to achieve one thing; to get people excited about coffee. Quality without compromise is our promise, and our method. If we don’t believe a coffee to be the very best it can be, we simply won’t sell it.
Our years of travel, research and experimentation, as both coffee lovers and students of the industry, have helped us beat a stringent, quality-obsessed pathway from farm to cup. We begin by sourcing seasonal, fresh beans from farmers around the world who have toiled for years to make their produce exceptional. We then store those beans on-site in humidity-controlled fridges, preserving their innate qualities. Then, fastidious computer-controlled roasting practices bring out each bean’s complexities and subtleties, with a consistency that guarantees satisfaction for baristas and consumers alike. In short, we give the bean, and the beverage that results, the respect it deserves.
Be it advice on how best to prepare it, drink it, or develop a love of it, Omar’s cuts through the caffeine palaver to forge informed, personal connections through coffee.
THAT DELICIOUS BEVERAGE PASSING YOUR LIPS ISN’T MERELY COFFEE. IT’S SOMETHING ALTOGETHER MORE COMPLEX, INTRIGUING… AND UNQUESTIONABLY MARVELLOUS.
Long ago, the mythic discoverer of the brew, Omar, outcast and near death, accepted the gift of a bean-laden branch from a generous bird. Upon boiling the beans and drinking the result, he was enthused and revitalised. He brought his discovery back to civilization—and changed the world forever.
Today the same humble bean is the second most traded commodity in the world. It inspires and impassions people across the globe. None more so than the founding owners of Omar and the Marvellous Coffee Bird, Dean Atkins and Andy Gelman.
We ignore the trends, the marketing, the smoke and mirrors. Our reason for being is to get people excited about good coffee. We source our beans seasonally from all over the globe. We store them fresh on-site in humidity-controlled fridges. And we use computer-controlled roasting to bring out each bean’s complexity and subtlety. All based on our own extensive research and experimentation.
From the farm to your cup, it’s quality without compromise. For cafés purchasing our product, this means utter reliability and consistency. And for the growing legion of coffee lovers making Omar’s their café of choice, it means enjoying coffee as idiosyncratic as you are.
