Meet the Karon Farm team


Luke has been roasting coffee for over 12 years, starting out with a re-purposed bread-maker and heat-gun (a corretto setup for the coffee geeks among us!) before moving on to small home roasters, a Behmor 1600, a Gene cafe and a then a Hottop.  In 2015 a commercial drum roaster was purchased and the dream of bringing  Karon Farm Coffee to local cafes and individual customers became a reality.  

Chris came on board in January 2022 as an apprentice roaster & all rounder.  He roasts, packs, delivers and everything in between. With a background in hospitality, including plenty of time pouring craft beer, he brings a lot to the business.
