Taking on the neighbourhood scene and staying bespoke with Tim Varney from Stella Coffee

Stella is here to provide high-quality, delicious, and responsibly sourced coffee to anyone who wants to discover it. Stella is led by Tim Varney, who’s been doing coffee for some time and in various capacities – as a coffee roaster, as the co-founder of the World AeroPress Championship, or as a co-founder of Melbourne’s first co-roasting space Bureaux. With all that experience I know this is going to be a great conversation and excited to talk with Tim in this week’s podcast.

Here are just some of the things we discussed below:

-How Tim started out in the industry.

-The importance of his first major employer Tim Wendelboe and living in Oslo for 6 years.

-How he started to learn how to roast coffee in Oslo

-The move back to Melbourne and finding his feet again

-The start of Bureau Coffee

-How he made Stella Coffee a different offering

-What Tim enjoys about coffee the most
