our story

At ONA, coffee is our passion.
As one of Australia’s most highly regarded specialty roasters, we’ve always had one simple goal: creating the best and most sustainable coffee in the world.

“To enrich people’s lives, connect communities and innovate for a  sustainable

Founded in 2008 by Saša Šestić, ONA Coffee was created with one goal: to create great coffee, and share it with as many people as possible. As we have grown and changed over the years, we have found new ways to share flavour and connect communities across the world.

With the core values of innovation, community and excellence, we aim to create a world of better and more sustainable coffee.

Via the ethical trading company, Project Origin, we source the highest quality green beans produced in the most sustainable ways possible, deal directly with producers and empower communities all across the world.

With five venues across Canberra, Sydney and Melbourne and wholesale partners across Australia and the world, the ONA Coffee community has continued to spread, maintaining our core values and mission.

Over the years, ONA Coffee has also achieved success in competitions across the world. Working with our own team and partners, we have achieved awards such as ‘World Barista Champion’ (2015), ‘Australian Barista Champion’ (2015, 2016, 2017, 2019), ‘Australian Brewers Cup Champion’ (2017, 2018, 2019) and ‘Australian Coffee in Good Spirits Champion’ (2018, 2019).

We believe that creating perfection in coffee isn’t a destination; it’s a journey, and one we want to share with you.
