About Us

Meet Presto. This is Our Story

❤️ Toddler James & Dad, 1998

Where It All Began.

Our founder James’ fondest memories are of him and his dad spending time together over a hot coffee in the early mornings before work and school. These memories sparked James’ passion to start Presto; creating great coffee that allows us to slow down and savour the things that matter.

Where We Are Now.

James created Presto Coffee in 2018 when he was just 23 years old. He still loves sharing a (Presto!) coffee with his dad. His belief that coffee drinkers shouldn’t have to choose between great taste, sustainability or just whatever they can find on the shelf, drives him to make Presto Coffee available to everyone.
