WHERE DID THE NAME COME FROM.....

 

 

 

 

The story goes that the first ever recorded consumption of coffee came when an Ethiopian goat-herd were noticed "dancing"around after eating the red berries off a coffee bush. It is said that the shepherd then reported his findings to the local monastery who found that the coffee kept him alert for long periods or prayer. They coined the dance the "Capra dance" (Capra meaning wild goat) and the rest is history.

So the name CAPRA originated right back at the start, CAPRA coffee has turned a simple discovery into "The fine Art of Coffee".

THE HISTORY....

 

 

We bought our first little bench top roaster after seeing one in action in Queensland in 2007 and started roasting coffee to supply our own cafe in Drysdale on the Bellarine Peninsula.

 

Our customers liked what we made and pretty soon we were roasting more coffee for customers to take home for their own machines than we were selling as cups of coffee through the cafe.

 

By July 2009 we had sold our cafe and purchased a much larger roaster to keep up supply to our ever expanding customer base. We found a rustic old building in Fyans St Geelong and Capra Coffee was soon up and running.

Six years on and Capra Coffee Coffee has continued to grow. Now there are three Capra Coffee stores,

at 110 Fyans St Geelong, 192 High St Belmont and 300 Old Geelong Road, Hoppers Crossing.

 

What started as very humble beginnings has grown to a very large distribution across Geelong and the Surf Coast.
