The Dimattina’s have a long, rich history in the coffee industry. Beginning in the 1950’s when our fathers started roasting coffee, the Dimattina name is now front and centre with the latest phase of the coffee dynasty, Dimattina Coffee.
Established in 1998, it was destined we would follow in our father’s footsteps and go into the addictive business of coffee for ourselves.
Once we made the decision to start operations as coffee wholesalers, we pursued our passionate love of coffee with zeal.
Our first-class readiness to adapt to the ever-changing needs of our customer, combined with the truly delicious coffee we produce, has created a loyal following we could never have anticipated. With plans to continue expanding to keep up with demand, we are humbled by the response to our coffee and will strive to continue creating a superior coffee experience for all our customers.View Our Range
1954 Australia may seem like a distant memory to most, but for the Dimattina family it will always hold a special significance. Back when Robert Menzies was Prime Minister, Queen Elizabeth II was new to the throne and Australia was home to only 9 Million people; three young entrepreneurs began roasting coffee for the first time. For the Dimattina’s, 1954 was the beginning of a multi-generational journey into the art of coffee roasting; a journey that continues to this day.
Dimattina Coffee in its current form was founded in 1998 by the latest generation of the family to take up the roaster’s mantle: Paul, Robert and Simon Dimattina as well as family friend and master roaster Lino Bettiol. From humble beginnings in Reservoir in Melbourne’s North, the company quickly began to gain momentum and by the new millennium they had outgrown their original 30kg Probat roaster and expanded operations into Western Australia.
Over the course of the 2000’s several new facilities were established nationwide including specialty café’s and showrooms in South Melbourne and Fitzroy, as well as a roasting warehouse in WA’s Osborne Park. In 2010 the main production roasting was moved to a new facility in Reservoir with state-of-the-art equipment designed to fine-tune the high-volume of roasting that was now required. In 2015, Paul Saccone, long-time family friend and Dimattina customer, recognised the potential for a dedicated roasting facility in Bali and opened up Dimattina Coffee Asia to service the growing demand in the local community. Dimattina WA continued to grow and in 2016 unveiled a new high-end training room and cupping lab.
Looking toward the future, Dimattina will continue to evolve with the rapidly changing nature of the modern coffee industry, while always remembering the history and tradition that formed its strong foundation back in ’54.
Coffee is a globally renowned product for many reasons: it tastes great, it gives us that oft-needed caffeine hit first thing in the morning and it’s also a great social catalyst. For us, at Dimattina however, it is so much more. To us, coffee walks a tightrope between the realms of art and science; it is the embodiment of the never-ending pursuit for perfection. We are forever chasing the perfect extraction, the perfect roast profile, the perfect cup; we are driven by an insatiable passion for this humble product that transcends its perception as a simple beverage. We live and breathe coffee.
The Dimattina family has always had a close relationship with coffee. With roots stretching back to the early 1950’s, Dimattina has forged a reputation based on quality and sincerity within the Australian coffee sector. This reputation can be attributed not only to our passion for coffee as a product, but our involvement as part of the community. The way coffee is perceived in Australia has changed dramatically over the last few decades; globalisation, ethical consumerism and the rise of the third wave coffee movement have all had an impact, and Dimattina has been around for all of it. We continue to move forward in this ever-changing landscape, but we are always mindful of the history and tradition that has shaped our company.
The old adage “Nothing ventured, nothing gained” rings true at Dimattina. Our company was founded to provide a service that goes beyond simply selling roasted coffee. Over the years we have pushed the boundaries of what it means to be a coffee roaster and have helped shape the industry as a whole. We’ve added new facets to the business, increased the scope of our knowledge and adapted to new trends and ideas within the industry. Above all, we keep our mind open to new concepts and are always looking to improve ourselves both internally and externally. We were established to innovate and will continue to do so.
