Established in Wellington in 1990, L’affare is a pioneer of New Zealand’s celebrated café and coffee culture.

Running and supplying some of the busiest cafés, restaurants and supermarkets in the country keeps us in the know.


We’ve spent the last 30 years selecting, roasting, cupping and blending some of the best coffees the world has to offer. Along with four great blends, including New Zealand’s favourite Primo, we can get our hands on some pretty special single origins. Coffee is our reason for being.


Locally roasted, and delivered fresh straight to a supermarket near you. We’ve been on shelves doing just that, in supermarkets nationwide since 1994. We made our fresh coffee available to all New Zealander’s, and have been a well loved staple item in pantries across the country.


We have long standing relationships with internationally-renowned manufacturers. We’re the New Zealand distributor of commercial espresso machines by Italian manufacturers Rocket Espresso Milano and Wega, alongside Mazzer coffee grinders. We believe in the best gear.
