Ikarus Coffee Roasters

Ensuring integrity from seed to cup

Protecting the reputation of Ikarus's New Zealand coffee.

Established in 2008, Ikarus Coffee Roasters are New Zealand’s first commercial coffee farm, growing, roasting and selling their own and imported products.

Oritain partners with Ikarus Coffee Roasters - New Zealand's pioneers of commercial coffee growing in Aotearoa.

Ikarus Coffee Roasters' partnership with Oritain.

Ikarus Coffee is based in the Pekerau Hills of Doubtless Bay, New Zealand, a sub-tropical climate equivalent to the higher altitude coffee grown in the tropics.

An exciting opportunity to broaden understanding of where and how coffee is cultivated, this opportunity continues to expand by partnering with Oritain to verify the origin of Ikarus Coffee as part of expanding the coffee footprint in New Zealand.

Seasonally samples are collected and analysed to determine the origin fingerprint.

Ikarus value working ethically and sustainably to curate New Zealand's only commercially grown coffee. With a strong commitment to their community and customers, they are integrated in providing product transparency of their supply chains and care about supplying the best quality coffee and service to their customers.

This partnership stands to protect the origin of New Zealand grown and imported coffee.

Traceability like no other.

Oritain’s unique methodology applies forensic science and data to detect naturally occurring elements in a product or raw material. Soil composition, climate, altitude and other environmental factors all reveal the details of a product’s origin - which we call an Origin Fingerprint.

Once we’ve created an Origin Fingerprint, it can be used to audit our clients’ products at any point in the supply chain - to clearly differentiate the legitimate from the fraudulent.
