MLK Espresso Bar & Cafe is proud to announce that it’s now serving fresh-roasted coffee from Byron Bay Coffee Company. This family-owned roasting company is located in the beautiful Byron Bay hinterland, less than one-hundred kilometres down the road from our cosy Broadbeach cafe. The founders of Byron Bay Coffee, husband-and-wife duo Annie and Franco Ivancich, have over thirty years of experience sourcing the best coffee from Certified Organic and Rainforest Alliance farms around the globe.
Local & Sustainably Sourced Coffee Beans
Using sustainable coffee roasters located near the Gold Coast, like Byron Bay, enables MLK to receive weekly deliveries of high-quality Arabica coffee beans. This ensures that every cup of coffee that our baristas make is fresh, well balanced and full of flavour. Whether you order a flat white or specialty coffee, you can breathe easy knowing that every sip is guaranteed to be delicious.
Byron Bay’s Organic Espresso Blend
While Byron Bay sells a variety of beans and blends from around the world, MLK is currently serving their Organic Espresso blend. Described as well rounded with a deep flavour that is slightly sweet with a rich and creamy body, our customers are raving about it.
“Great coffee for the true coffee lover.”
— Paul H.
To prepare every cup, our baristas grind whole beans from the Organic Espresso blend to create your unique coffee creation. And because we know that not everyone is a purist, we offer almond, coconut, soy and Zymil milk (all naturally gluten free products) as well as shots of vanilla, caramel, hazelnut and honey to take your cup of joe to a whole new level. You can also opt for an extra shot if you’re feeling groggy or decaf if you’ve already hit your caffeine limit for the day (as if that ever really happens!).
Eco-Friendly To-Go Cups
There’s nothing quite like waking up and enjoying a frothy cappuccino in a mug while reading the morning paper on our picturesque patio but we know it’s not always realistic. If you’re grabbing a coffee to-go before surfing or sunbathing on our gorgeous coastline, you no longer have to feel guilty about using a disposable cup. Every MLK take-away cup is now made from renewable, plant-based materials that are biodegradable.
Along with reducing landfill waste, MLK is proud to join in Byron Bay Coffee Company’s effort to save the rainforest. Through its partnerships with cafes, Byron Bay is committed to supporting Sea Shepherd and Rainforest Rescue. Over the last several years, they’ve donated more than $6,500 to both organisations, saving 4,700 square metres of forest. Bravo, Byron Bay!
