about us

Cottle Coffee first began in 1972, with the purchase of an existing business known as LD Lazarus, which was located at Montague Street South Melbourne and was established in 1912. It was then that Cottle Coffee began to take off. Bruce made a number of trips to New Guinea and India in pursuit of acquiring and defining the art of roasting and making that perfect cup of coffee. His travel and dedication has resulted in what we see today as a highly successful business, that prides itself on excellent quality.

As a result of further expansion, Cottle Coffee moved again in 1978, this time to 300 Coventry Street South Melbourne, where it has remained for the last 30 years.
