October 2021: Open Plan Coffee Roasters

October 2021: Open Plan Coffee Roasters

Welcome to our October blog post where we get to meet our new featured roaster Open Plan Coffee Co, delivered to you by one Coffee Snob. Open Plan is a boutique cafe and roastery located in North Perth, Western Australia.

Headed up by roaster and owner Tim Pullin, open plan has a focus on special uncommon coffee from less well known farms.


Established in 2016, Open Plan Coffee Roasters in North Perth have been on a mission. Open Plan began by roasting solely on a 2.5kg Coffee-Tech FZ-94 to cater to the local community. Moving forward to 2021, they have now expanded with a second roastery in O’Connor south of Perth, acquiring a 30kg Has Garanti roaster to help get the job done. The goal from day one - transparency, detail & relationships.

Owner & head roaster, Tim Pullin, has been around the coffee and hospitality industry for 20 years and now more than ever gets excited by the prospect of sourcing, sampling and roasting new coffees and developing new blending options. A high level of attention to detail ensures, quality & repeatability.
