How we began

Hey there, coffee lovers! Welcome to Barista Baba Coffee, where we're all about bringing the best Australian roasted coffee straight to the bustling streets of Hong Kong. How did we get started, you ask?

Well, it all began with a simple conversation between our founder and his wife.

Picture this: his wife was about to move to Hong Kong from Australia, and she had one concern - the coffee. She couldn't bear the thought of leaving behind the amazing Australian coffee she had grown to love.

That's when he had his "aha" moment, realising that Hong Kong needed a taste of the incredible coffee blends that were being roasted Down Under.

So, armed with a passion for coffee and a determination to deliver the best to the people of Hong Kong, Barista Baba Coffee was born.

We're not your average coffee shop, though. We bring the convenience of online shopping to coffee enthusiasts all over Hong Kong.

Where did the name "Barista Baba Coffee" come from?

"Baba" is an homage to Baba Budan, an Indian sufi saint credited for starting the spread of coffee cultivation and coffee culture outside of Arabia.

In the 16th century, when Baba Budan was on a sacred pilgrimage to Mecca, he was captured by the love of a tonic given to pilgrims as they battled fatigue and heat - "qahwa" or Arabic coffee.

But this "qahwa" - what we now call coffee - was banned from export as anything but a roasted coffee bean. In his caffeinated rebeliion, he managed to get a hold of some fresh seeds, picked just seven of them, and hid them in his beard. After successfully smuggling them back to his home in India through the port of Yemen, he nurtured these seven seeds into sevens thriving coffee plants, becoming the first to grow coffee outside of Arabia.

Whilst we don't know what he looks like, we pay respects to his accomplishment and adventure with a depiction of Baba Budan in our logo, complete with the beard that made it all possible.
