MEET THE COFICOM TEAM

Collectively, our combined coffee experience covers just about every aspect of the industry. It’s something we delight in sharing with everyone from start ups to established businesses

Company Background

Cofi-Com was founded in 1987 by Andrew Mackay and a business partner after working for a large coffee and tea commodity company in Sydney. The business started out of a warehouse in Seven Hills and grew based on Andrew’s personal philosophy of competitively priced, quality green coffee and strong belief in personal service. In 2003, Cofi-Com was acquired by Volcafe, the coffee trading arm of E&DF Man. Cofi-Com today operates from two sites in Sydney, our Head Office in West Ryde and Quality Lab in Huntingwood.
