Winning! So much winning!

We started back in 1996 with one small coffee shop in Sumner and now look. We’ve grown to be an extended family of stores across the South Island and even have a store in the Mighty Tron. It’s all thanks to the loyalty and support of so many guests and of course our group of local owners. Running a Coffee Culture store is incredibly rewarding – you get to meet great people, transform humble coffee beans into magic life-giving elixir and you get all the satisfaction of working for yourself. But it’s hard, and requires huge amounts of energy and dedication.

Every year we like to honour the best of the best at our Annual Awards night. We pay tribute to the leaders and teams that have smashed out great coffees and exceptional service over the previous year.


Congratulations to this year’s winners, and thanks to our all our stores that work super hard to delight our guests all day every day.
