WATCH: Rabbit’s tale of survival in the coffee capital.

Dec 17th, 2014 | By | Category: Front Page Layout, Latest News, News

RED RABBIT Coffee Co in Wellington has proven itself in the coffee capital after a successful first year in business.

The business, which is hidden underneath Hannah’s factory on Eva Street, boasts a menu with coffees from all around the world – at the moment they have blends from Burundi, Mexico, Ethiopia, Kenya and Nicaragua.

There are usually about six different coffees on offer at any one time, and they also sell a collection of coffee beans.

Manager Baptiste Kreyder says their success lies in the location, quality and the service they provide.

“Good service is of course essential and that’s what I think makes it a really happy place.”

Red Rabbit shares the space with the Leeds Street Bakery, and the two share the café in the middle.

“Both the bakery and the roastery are sort of matching businesses, both dedicated to quality and that creates a synergy in the café.”

He says the café allows them to showcase the best of the roastery and the bakery.

When asked what Red Rabbit’s most popular coffee is, Mr Kreyder says everyone is different and it’s down to personal choice.

“There’s people who get the same coffee over and over again, because they enjoy the fact that we are quite consistent in terms of quality, then there are people who really like to explore.”

Mr Kreyder has been working with coffee for five years and chose to work at Red Rabbit because he heard good things.

“I did my research and this place was one of the few in Wellington that really popped out in terms of quality.”

He waited until a spot became available in the new business and joined the team, within months he was managing the joint.

Mr Kreyder is pleased to be working for the company and is looking forward to seeing what the next year brings.
