Anyone in Sydney that knows coffee, knows @TobysEstateCoffee.
But it’s likely even most loyal advocates don’t know the Toby’s story.
More than fifteen years ago, Toby Smith decided he wasn’t cut out to be a lawyer. “I didn’t initially consider coffee to be what I was going to do for the rest of my life,” he says, “but I wanted to escape the path of becoming a lawyer, so this was sort of my exit plan. Then I fell in love with it.” So, with bags packed, he followed his heart and ventured to some of the world’s most remote regions to discover all there was to know about his first love - coffee.
While living within the community of coffee farmers in Brazil, Toby experienced firsthand how these families had dedicated their lives, and a lot of hard manual labour to growing exquisite beans. Inspired by his new purpose, and a deep respect for the coffee farmers who taught him so much, Toby returned home and got to work perfecting the art and science of roasting coffee from his mum’s garage in the back streets of Woolloomooloo.
The rest, as they say is history. Since 1998, Toby - with the help of his father and a small team of equally passionate coffee enthusiasts working by his side - has opened a number of signature Toby’s Estate cafés around Australia, established a presence in Singapore, New York and Manila, developed exclusive supply agreements with several hundred cafés nationally and was recently inducted into the Sydney Morning Herald Café Guide Hall of Fame for his contribution to the Sydney café culture.
