Ocean Grind Coffee

Ocean Grind is a micro roastery in Jan Juc with a focus on providing fresh, quality coffee to homes and cafes. Ocean Grind is passionate about coffee and our spectacular coastline aiming to maximise flavour and minimise impact on the environment. The beans are ethically sourced, with a preference for estates using sustainable farming practices and looking after their workers. Some may have certifications but they also like to include small, independent farms that are doing the right things by the environment and their workers, but may not necessarily be certified.
