The plant-based coffee company bringing innovative alternatives to Aotearoa

Plant Projects Coffee is a New Zealand owned and operated company on a mission to provide customers with innovative plant based alternatives.

Founded in 2019 by Jamie Wilson, Plant Projects sells coffee blends roasted especially to be made with dairy-free milk. The brand is also proud to have introduced Kiwis to cult brand Oatly.

“Just a few years ago, the market for alternate milk were vegans, vegetarians, or those who had an intolerance to dairy. The recent numbers prove plant-based milk has moved to the mainstream,” says Wilson.

Plant Projects Coffee creates the perfect soy, almond, or oat milk latte. Its low acidity blend prevents the coffee and plant milk from splitting and curdling. It also retains the punchy flavour notes through your milk choice, so you can still taste all the goodness of the coffee. Plus, the added bonus of a light acidity coffee means it’s kinder on the stomach.

“Coffee is typically created by coffee people, to be enjoyed on its own. We have roasted a coffee specifically for us plant milk people, to be enjoyed with plant milk,” says Wilson. 

“The perfect blend of beans creates a low acidity coffee and best flavours to ensure the smoothest of all plant milk lattes or flat whites.”

Roasted in Auckland, Plant Projects coffee is 70 percent Columbian and 30 percent Ethiopian, and features notes of chocolate, caramel and orange.

The local business is still operating during Level Four lockdown, and delivers nationwide.
