Three Llamas Gourmet Coffee

65a Main North Road, Woodend

These guys do it well.  Their beans come from a small mountainous region in Northern Perú, recognised for its exceptional and distinctive high quality coffee. This means their coffee selection is so good it doesn’t need to be blended with coffees from other countries. 

You can pop in and enjoy an excellent espresso, grab a bite to eat and buy your choice of freshly roasted specialty coffee beans from the wide selection on offer… may even catch them when they are roasting!

Three Llamas are a Business Partner of Visit Waimakariri.

The green beans are already mixed to their recipe and they have a blend of beans from Brazil, Colombia & Papua New Guinea which gives their coffee the strong but smooth taste.

Steph decided to roast her own coffee after coming across a company selling roasters for cafes and thought it would a great way to keep consistency of their coffee, not to mention the really good looking machine! The popular 'Lilybean' blend is named after Steph's daughter and is sold in 200g and 500g packets.
