More information & Menu:


Coffee Studio masters the art of coffee making in West Auckland. Its hosts, Sarah Roberts and Richard Ingamells invite visitors to taste the Sozo ethically-traded coffee while enjoying a variety of home baking and food made with selected fresh ingredients.

Visitors can relax over a cup of coffee, soak up the character filled environment and the cultural atmosphere of the arts precinct, while visiting the art galleries in the Homestead or browsing in the gallery shop with its hand-crafted wares. The Estate is set in park-like surroundings bordered by the Opanuku Stream, with space to take a scenic walk, run the family dog or bike along the cycleway.

Coffee Studio offers visitors their favourite beverages whether it’s coffee the way they like it, a steaming hot chocolate, the finest Harney & Sons teas or one of the selection of cold drinks.

The couple pride themselves on their high quality premium products sourced from small local companies. Their commitment to supporting fair-trade ensures that their products such as sugar, coffee, cocoa, and bananas are sourced ethically and at fair prices from their producers.


The café is located in the oldest winery building on the Corban Estate, above the old wine cellar. The café’s décor celebrates New Zealand’s domestic and industrial past as reflected in the up-cycled furnishings by industrial art funiture designers, The Boiler Room and many personal collectibles. The café’s wallpaper on the feature wall is dated from 1930, it was generously donated by Assid Corban, a trustee of the arts centre.

Coffee Studio is just a twenty minute drive from central Auckland and there is abundant parking on site. Or take the train and after only a ten minute walk from Henderson railway station and town centre, you arrive at the Coffee Studio.
