Our name is our promise to you.

Coffee Anthropology describes the cultural space that is created when diverse people and beautiful space come together with delicious food and exquisite coffee. It’s this ethos that underpins all that we do.

  • We use 100% virgin olive oil to prepare food
  • we focus on general health and balance in recipe development and aim to minimise unnecessary fats, salt, flavourants, colourants and preservatives
