Our Story

Dawn Patrol was established in 2014, in Kangarilla South Australia. Centred in one of the states finest wine regions, we now operate from our permanent head quarters in scenic Mclaren Vale. 

Our cellar door approach to coffee is what drives us as a business. We believe that through enthusiasm and experience and passion, we can get you as excited about coffee as we are. This is made possible in our cellar door, where you can sample all of our current offerings, and learn more about coffee than you ever thought possible. 

We aim for 100% traceability at Dawn Patrol, which means that we know exactly where our beans come from, who grows them and how they were processed. We seek to only buy, roast and deliver exceptional and delicious coffees sourced from some of the best coffee growers in the world - who strive to to produce their coffee beans ethically and sustainably.

How long will my coffee beans stay fresh, and how should I store them?

Ideally, you should use your beans within 3 weeks of roast date. This will yield the best flavour. Store your beans in an airtight environment and away from light, at room temperature. 


Please note, we are unable to accomodate dogs inside our venue. If you wish to do a tasting, you will have to leave your dog outside or at home. Well behaved dogs are welcome outside only.
