Sipping Duck

Sipping Duck is a specialty coffee roastery based in Cairns since December 2012. Our mission is to bring top quality coffee to the region and offer quality products for people to enjoy in the comfort of their homes; this is why we create products that are special, unique and deliver a sensory experience. We are dedicated to specialty coffee, organic teas, raw honey and sparkling cold brew coffee.

Our coffee is roasted with passion and care in a small-batch roaster, using specialty grade arabica beans grown at high altitude, where coffee develops unique and outstanding characteristics. Our organic loose leaf tea blends are lovingly crafted to support a healthy lifestyle while combining flavor, aroma and color for a unique taste.

We choose to give our business a contemporary and rustic approach. With this in mind, everything we do is hand processed and packed, our coffee is roasted and extracted according to the latest techniques and we have put great effort in mind-blowing latte art.
