Wood & Co

Wood & Co. started out in owner Aaron Wood’s backyard in 2015, where he roasted small batches of beans for his cafe-owning friends around Melbourne.

Wood soon ramped it up to a wholesale operation behind Brunswick’s Kines, before setting up his first shopfront on Albert Street in Brunswick in 2019. Today it’s a roastery, a wholesaler and an uncomplicated specialty coffee spot for the coffee appreciative and the caffeine inclined.

Wood’s coffee is accessible, creatively packaged and incredibly well roasted. The menu is coffee-centric, with single-origin and blended espresso and filter, as well as cans of cold brew for dine-in or takeaway.

Their much-loved Twin Peaks blend combines Ethiopian and Colombian beans for a toffee mandarin flavour profile. You’ll also find their two other in-house blends, Karma and Sunshine, and other single-origin beans rotated in every four to six weeks.

You’ll find a healthy coffee retail shelf, too. There are bags of Wood & Co’s three stand-in blends (which you can buy a year-long subscription to), along with brewing gear to take home.

The cafe’s fit-out reflects Wood & Co’s no-frills ethos to roasting and serving quality coffee. There’s a handful of seats for dine-in, where you can watch the team roast the beans destined for your cup. The space is open-plan with polished concrete floors and exposed red brick walls, its industrial airiness bringing its coffee roasting operation into full focus.
