About b3 Coffee
Where b3 Coffee began
With humble beginnings, b3 Coffee opened as a roast house in 2016. Ben Laakmann set up a store on the main street in Blackwood with a vision to roast and sell ethically sourced specialty-grade coffee. As demand and popularity grew, the roast house quickly evolved into a coffee shop – a place for you to try b3 Coffee in person.
Who we are today
Since then, b3’s roasting site has moved to Somerton Park, and, in 2018, the business welcomed Shana Knowles as co-owner of b3. Ben and Shana continue to actively work in the business alongside an incredible group of friendly, talented and passionate team members.
At b3, we are passionate about building an appreciation for high-quality coffee, educating fellow coffee-lovers, and continually creating ethical, sustainable and transparent business and environmental practices.
Our three core values are coffee, quality and community.
