David Kennedy, a coffee lover who educates himself as part of his search for the highest-quality coffee beans.

A good coffee starts when you source quality beans that are ethically farmed; when farmers are paid a good price for their work which allows them to sustainably manage their farms and provide for their families to keep growing this incredible crop.

Based in the Byron Arts and Industry Estate, Bun Coffee now roasts over 90 different single origin beans that truly take your tastebuds on a world tour; from Australia to Hawaii, Madagascar, Brazil, Ethiopia, Bolivia, Ecuador and El Salvadore – just to name a few! 

Master roaster, owner and coffee connoisseur David Kennedy sources the beans for Bun Coffee. He’s always taken the time to educate himself about the highest quality coffee beans on offer. From his first roast, back in 1992, David’s love of coffee and the industry behind the exotic bean has never waned.

The name Bun can be traced back to the origins of coffee in the Kaffa Forests of Ethiopia, where coffee is called Buna. For David, it is also reminiscent of a time when he owned and operated a French patisserie in the Sydney suburb of Glebe, fondly known as the ‘sticky bun shop’, so the name ‘Bun’ stuck.

David’s passion for this crop has not diminished a drop over time. Right now, he is studying a Certificate in Advanced Studies on Coffee Excellence at the Zurich University of Applied Sciences, which is an in-depth study of coffee from seed to consumer. His early mornings see him, around 5am, totally in his element with a double ristretto in hand and a roast of one of the many single origins in the roaster, David is in true coffee heaven! A lover not only of coffee, but also a lover of the coffee industry, he says, ‘I’m so fortunate to absolutely love what I do and share my passion of coffee with those good people around me’.

Roasting ‘good coffee’, grown by ‘good people’ is truly a ‘good thing’ that you can taste in every cup.

Looking for something a little different to give your tastebuds a broader experience? Pop into the Bun Coffee Roastery Door and Espresso Bar located in the Byron Industry Estate. 

Now open 6am–3pm Mon–Fri.Cnr Ewingsdale Rd and Banksia Drive, Byron Arts and Industry Estate.
