The Di Bella Story

In 2002, a young entrepreneur with a passion for coffee, named Phillip Di Bella started a small coffee-roasting operation in the Brisbane suburb of Bowen Hills. He named this company Di Bella Coffee.

Over the next decade Phil’s humble coffee roasting operation began to expand, and quickly. In fact, due to the rapid rate of growth, Di Bella Coffee was recognised in the 2006, 2007 and 2009 Business Review Weekly Fast 100.

What started out as a small coffee roasting operation in the suburbs of Brisbane in 2002 had emerged as a revolutionary, customer focused business, which became synonymous with opportunity and innovation.


Guided by our clear vision, The Greatness is in the Detail. In 2018, we merged four coffee companies, Di Bella Coffee, Roasting Australia, Di Bella USA, and Evolution Roasters NZ to form Australia’s second largest roast and ground coffee enterprise, Di Bella.  

This merger allows Di Bella to provide customers with the best coffee experience from start to finish, supporting small and large businesses. Di Bella not only offers freshly roasted coffee, but also have a long-life coffee range to cater for business with less frequent ordering processes, a range of ancillary products like teas, hot chocolate, sugars and many more.

Today, Di Bella currently produces 3,480 tonnes of coffee per year which equals 150 million cups of coffee served. We proudly supply over 3,000 cafes and restaurants and customers within 37 countries.
