About Us

Upshot Coffee is a boutique and 100% Fairtrade Organic certified roastery. We are committed to supplying you with the world's finest Fair Trade Organic coffee which we roast with love and care in small batches and can ship direct from our roastery to your door.

We began roasting in an old butcher's shop on Station Rd in Heathcote Valley, Christchurch in 2005.This shop was badly damaged and eventually demolished following the February 2011 earthquake.

Upshot is now operating at the Heathcote Valley Riding School site at 131 Bridle Path Rd. The coffee shop runs out of a modified 20ft shipping container with quality espresso to go or sit or in the rustic courtyard. 100% Fairtrade Organic coffee is roasted in a tin shed on site and sold from the shop as whole beans or a grind to suit your needs.

Upshot aims to source the world's finest 100% Fair Trade Organic certified coffee beans and we roast them in small batches in a traditional drum roaster. Each batch is carefully tended by our roast master. This ensures optimum development of the flavours and aromatics in these high grown arabica beans. With 20 years of experience roasting coffee and 12 years roasting Fair Trade beans we know how to coax the best out of our coffee. 

We roast a range of distinctive single origin coffees as well as unique blends.
