ABOUT NORMCORE COFFEE

 

We are a coffee company that exists as a part of the community. Not only serving coffees is our job but also taking care of whatever we can do for the community is a significant role of us. We pursue 'Damn Good Coffee' all the time as we are coffee professionals as well as trustworthy people. 

 

We established in 2016 in Sydney, Australia by teaming up with two coffee professionals. Since then, we have been serving great quality coffees to our local customers, and as time goes by, it has been widely distributed across Australia as well as international market such as US, China, Hong Kong, UAE and South Korea.


Normcore is a compound word between ‘normal’ and ‘hardcore’. This reflects our will to serve coffees that the mass can enjoy, and manias who have very specific and unique taste.


As coffee professionals, we have been participating in many different type of coffee competitions and have won many trophies. This does not only mean that we did great job in the competition but also it represents that what we have been doing are able to be proved by other industry professionals regarding quality. 

 

We are kind of people who believe hard work pays off one day. Thus, we will keep moving forward.

Our Vision - 'Do right things’

Our vision is to be a great company that is responsible for our community and environment by doing right things hence contributing our society.

 

Our Mission - ‘Damn Good Coffee’

Our mission is not only serving good coffee but also the ‘Damn Good Coffee’ to all of you. From choosing the green bean, through the design of the roast profile, and brewing then to service, even buying coffee online, we carefully manage every single process to ensure the quality of our coffee is great, consistently.



WHY A PLATYPUS AS OUR SYMBOL?

As a native Australian animal that is considered an endangered/threatened species due to climate change, we have chosen the Platypus as our symbol to represent our values on the environment and society and its sustainability.

 

It also serves as a reminder to keep moving our business in the right direction for our local community and on a global scale as well. We are continuing to grow our business with a sustainable approach so that more people in our current and next generation can enjoy damn good coffee.
