Delinquent Coffee

Okay, so who else here is a caffeine addict?

If that’s you, then you’ll want to hear about the new kids on the coffee roasting scene, Delinquent Coffee Roasters.

Delinquent Coffee Roasters, run by Eamonn O’Rielly, is a family business at its core; his parents help with the admin side of the business and with deliveries and his niece and nephew also led a hand packing the coffee from time to time.

Eamonn has been perfecting his coffee roasting for many tears, working with some of Perth’s top coffee producers before establishing Delinquent Coffee Roasters in 2015, and going into production in 2016.

“I started my coffee journey many years ago when I was in high school, where I would skip classes to go grab a coffee which my older sister got me in to. Hence the name Delinquent!” explained Eamonn.

Delinquent Coffee Roasters started from humble beginnings in Eamonn’s parent’s garage, like all start-ups tend to do, and has since expanded to a workshop and supplying coffee to Wild River Cafe in Mundaring, Little Guildford in Guildford, The Old Boy Cafe in Ardross and The Broody Hen in Fremantle with the plan to expand and build a roastery and espresso bar in the next year to better showcase Eamonn’s unique blends of coffee.

“I want to branch out and do a more craft-style of roasting that was focused on quality coffee, with a strong focus on central American varieties as they are my favourite single origin.” said Eamonn.

Next step for Delinquent Coffee Roasters is their upcoming new website and a branding overhaul to go with it, so watch this space!

With the launch of the new branding Delinquent Coffee Roasters will be supporting a different charity each month with proceeds going to said charity.

“I’m a big dog lover, hence the dog in my new branding, so I’ll be looking for the first charity I support being a dog shelter or charity.” said Eamonn.

So next time you have a caffeine craving, make sure you try Delinquent Coffee Roasters at Wild River Café, Little Guildford, Old Boy Café or The Broody Hen or you can check them out on Facebook: or Instagram:

Hi! I’m a country girl at heart though having moved around a lot when I was young; I’ve lived in the Goldfields, the Wheatbelt and the Avon Valley, but I’ve spent most of my life in Busselton in the South West.

I love going to live gigs and events, and on weekends you’ll often find me in cafes embarrassing my boyfriend by taking terrible photos of our food #brunchclub or taking way too many selfies with Cleo.

I love discovering new things to do in Perth and trying new places, which is why I’m so excited to be writing for Perth Happenings, where I can do just that!
