Red Circle Cafe

Red Circle Coffee Company

The circle symbolizes simplicity at this coffee roaster, with the red inspiring the love in serving coffee shown in the heart shaped intricate finishes on the top of their cappuccinos. With a deeper meaning in both the symbol and the colour, the owners discovered a Red Circle Coffee once existed until the late 1970s, and what they stood for was admired ~ quality, consistency, value and consideration.  Beans are ethically sourced globally and prepared in the big red roasting machine with coffees created for you in the cafe, both to single-origins and in uniquely crafted blends, and served with an array of freshly baked goods and artisan foods.
