Who we are

About DalMare

The story of our coffee begins by selecting only the finest, ethically sourced beans from our coffee suppliers, Bennets Green Coffee Traders and South Merchants. Our hand-selected coffee voyage converges in McLaren Vale, South Australia, “by the sea” or as we say “Dal Mare”.

Dal Mare Coffee is hand-roasted, using old family techniques combined with modern technology to bring out a fine harmony of aroma and flavour in every cup.

Our coffee might start your day, keep you going through it, or be enjoyed for its fine flavours on a slow Sunday. Whatever the occasion, there is nothing like a perfectly roasted coffee from our team.
