our story

After spending more than 7 years working as a Manager in coffee sales for a large multi-national, whilst also roasting coffee as a hobby for family and friends our main man Ben saw an opportunity to establish our own coffee roasting business. Not only is he an awarded Sales Manager, he's a trained Barista and a qualified Barista trainer. Experienced in coffee machine repairs and maintenance and most importantly a gun on the Roaster he's an all round coffee guru.

Together we are The Cape Effect Coffee Roasters!


The Cape Effect is the name we give to the wind phenomenon often experienced along the Cape Naturaliste peninsula. Caused by the moderating effect of water on both sides of the land, surfers and fishermen often report favourable wind conditions in the local area when it's on-shore elsewhere along the coast.

As lovers of the ocean and long time locals it's from this phenomenon that we have drawn the inspiration for our brand and our name.
