Inside Black Market Roasters Enmore

Quality coffee, beautiful space!
Inside Black Market Roasters Enmore

Self proclaimed coffee nerds, Jessica and Angus Nicol, started Black Market Roasters to fill the gap in the market for consistent, quality coffee. After giving up their 9 to 5s and working in the industry, managing Top Hat Coffee Merchants in Clovelly and Rockdale’s Swallow Coffee Traders, they were inspired to get involved in the supply chain of coffee and coffee roasting.

‘We love finding out the origins of flavour, whether it be wine, coffee or food – so naturally we wanted to get involved at an early stage in roasting coffee.’

Jessica and Angus found that farmers, traders and roasters were improving the coffee they were producing but many baristas were struggling to keep up with the increasing quality of coffee, failing to do the supply chain justice. This concept is what led Black Market Roasters to offering barista courses and providing a platform for baristas to improve the quality of coffee being sold in cafés in Australia and around the world.

Opening Black Market Roasters Café in Enmore was a natural progression for the business as Enmore was ‘crying out for fresh roasted coffee, delivered fast and consistently by happy baristas.’ The new space was designed with the help of interior designer Emma Rosewarne, and reflects the character of the business quite beautifully, providing Black Market Roasters with a platform to celebrate quality coffee and encourage a large character type to feel comfortable in the space.

‘We love fresh, clean, small spaces that invoke a closeness to people and produce, yet enough calmness to help bring a smooth transition from early morning to work day.’

Creating a comfortable yet functional space in such a long and thin interior came with its challenges, aiming to provide a space for people buying a coffee on the run as well as creating a space that people wanted to sit down in and enjoy a coffee. The natural materials throughout the space reflect back to the concept of the company celebrating the natural flavours of coffee beans and with its neutral palette, intricate detailing and thoughtful decorating, the custom designed coffee machine is able to sing out as the hero of the space.

Making a small interior feel spacious can often be difficult, but it is not impossible with these helpful tips taken from this successful interior!

  • Great lighting – natural or artificial. The brighter the space, the larger it will feel.
  • Spread out the seating and make use of as much space as you can – long thin benches will keep the space feeling big but provide a spacious feel
  • Don’t overdo it with different materials or colours. Stick to 3 different materials or colours and use them tastefully.
