Pay attention next time you are driving down Fitzgerald Ave, because here you will find a cafe and roastery home to some of the best brews and beans in the city. Located somewhat inconspicuously at the intersection of Lichfield Street, Coffee Embassy is an old mechanic’s workshop transformed into a cool little espresso bar and wholesale roastery. A fit out of galvanized steel and polished-ply furniture is complemented with white painted brick walls and industrial-style lighting.

Home to some of the finest grade coffee beans in Christchurch and some of the newest industry innovations – like the nitro coffee cold brew on tap. That is coffee chilled by food-grade nitrogen, poured from a keg tap into your glass. Supplying their fruit to cafes around Canterbury and beyond, Dave and Andy are all about educating their customers, too.

While they cater beautifully to the masses with a small brunch-esque menu and cabinet brimming with filled rolls and delectable sweet treats, they also offer specialty brews, beans and the lowdown on all things coffee. Specialty coffees come with tasting notes, and the wholesale coffee roastery hosts cuppings for customers, too.
