What is Sample Staples?

At Sample Coffee, we’ve always sourced, roasted, brewed and served the coffee you (and we) dream of drinking every single day. The same principles drive us to provide fresh food and pantry essentials.

With Sample Staples you can stock up on food basics (bread, eggs, nuts, flour…) — the same staples that our chefs have in the Sample Coffee pantry.


Our suppliers.

We have worked with local independent suppliers since we opened our doors in 2015. These are Australian-owned small businesses that offer an amazing range of high-quality products, sourcing from local farmers and makers.

In these lines, we are pretty stoked to be a certified B Corporation; B Corps use profits and growth as a means to a greater end: positive impact for their employees, communities, and the environment.

The suppliers for the Sample Staples store are exactly the same we use in our own cafe: Thoroughbread Bakery, Two Provs, Nicks Food Milk More, Penny Fours…

  • All the products you buy are of high-quality, exactly the same you have been served on your brekkies at Sample.
  • You are supporting the people at Sample Coffee instead of large corporations; you are helping your local coffee dealers survive these rough times!
