What is Bedst?

Bedst is an online store and coffee pop up that shares our favourite coffees from Scandinavian countries. 

We fell in love with coffees from this region after wanting to explore roast styles that were different to predominant styles in Australia. This quickly led us to Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland, where we found light roast coffee that we fell in love with.

During this time, we noticed that bags of coffee from this region will often list a 'best before' rather than a roast date. In Danish this is 'bedst før', which is where we got the idea for the name.


Why Nordic Coffee?

This style of roasting to us best presents flavours of origin, varietal and processing methods. They last well for up to 3 months after a roast date, often presenting their best flavours after at least 4 weeks. We wanted to celebrate these bright and clean light roast coffees, and help encourage coffee that's been rested. 


Who are you?

Bedst is run by James Perry (@jamesperrycoffee) and Laura Doherty out of Canberra, ACT. James is a longtime coffee professional and Laura loves organising things, which makes them a dream team when it comes to selling coffee.
