About Us

Emporio Coffee is one of the original four Wellington coffee roasters. Founders Eric and Miriam Heycoop were successful café owners prior to establishing Emporio and remain hands-on in all aspects of their coffee business. They understand ‘all things coffee’ and what makes a great café. They are also energetic advocates for ingenuity and design, and how things work.

Emporio selects 100% arabica coffee beans from around the world through ethical relationships, roasting each coffee individually. A highly skilled crew includes roasters, educators, technicians and baristas.

We're committed to supporting: our cafes and clients, our growers across the globe, colleagues in our industry, our staff as well as other industrious New Zealanders with the drive and passion to get the good stuff done.

Emporio is committed to supporting our communities here and across the globe.

El Recreo School, Jinotega, Nicaragua

Owners Miriam and Eric Heycoop and their children recently visited the farm that supplies their Nicaraguan beans. "Total immersion in this side of the business made us feel more connected with the families that run and work on the farm. We were so taken with how they looked after their workers and children we made a commitment to support the school", Miriam said.

It prompted the couple to support the school by regularly supplying stationery and sports equipment.
