Just Planet is committed to sourcing only the finest organic coffee beans from accredited Fairtrade farms prioritising sustainable development.

These farms, often the size of a football pitch, are family-run enterprises that employ locals residing nearby. One notable aspect of these small farms is their conscientious avoidance of pesticides and large-scale farming practices commonly found in our food systems. 

As a result, they naturally contribute to a healthier environment. Just Planet takes its sustainability efforts further by implementing various eco-friendly practices within all operations. For instance, all coffee grounds are composted on-site for the cafe's garden; we use compostable bags, reusable buckets for wholesale coffee and much more.

About Just Planet

Just Planet is a cherished family-owned coffee roastery started by Norman and Lee Palumbo in 2008. Since then, we have worked tirelessly to give our community access to the finest selection of organic, Fairtrade coffee beans from around the globe. We believe our commitment to quality and sustainability truly sets Just Planet apart, as does our firm belief in supporting not just one farm but entire communities.

Our coffee selection features a range of options to cater to diverse preferences. Choose from nine single-origin coffees, each with its own distinct characteristics and two meticulously crafted blends. For those seeking decaffeinated options, the decaf coffee is Swiss water processed and organic, ensuring a delightful taste without compromising quality.

Our coffee

For the past 15 years, Just Planet has proudly aligned itself with the core values of the Fairtrade movement. Our exquisite fair trade organic coffee beans can be found online or at the roastery in Sunbury, a staple of the community that has helped to support sporting clubs, art galleries, rotary events, community kitchens and much more.

Our team has honed the process to ensure all coffee beans reach their peak flavour. Contrary to common perception, the Just Planet process recommends beans are best served three weeks after roasting, once the degassing process has occurred.
