Atomic Coffee has been at the leading edge of NZ’s world-class coffee scene since the days of lattes in bowls (hehe, remember those? A coffee as big as your head. Good times, good times) and their Kingsland roastery is a truly an icon of Auckland coffee culture.
Being at the crest of the third wave coffee movement seems like the perfect timing to give the fit-out a massive makeover, and that’s just what they’ve done, with a completely new interior designed in collaboration with Material Creative.
Come for the coffee, stay for the coffee… (this is one of the only places in Auckland with a dedicated brew bar, serving single-origin, soft brewed coffee three ways) served up with polished concrete, marble and copper, against black, black and more black (the foil for which is loads of light and glass).
