About Us

Emporio Coffee is one of the original four Wellington coffee roasters. Founders Eric and Miriam Heycoop were successful café owners before establishing Emporio and remain hands-on in all aspects of their coffee business. They understand ‘all things coffee’ and what makes a great café. 

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.

Owners Miriam and Eric Heycoop's visit to the farm that supplies their Nicaraguan beans prompted them to start supporting the local school, "It 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".
