raw coffee
delivers raw perfection
in every cupTM

Unable to buy quality coffee that we were used to back in New Zealand, we started off as bootleggers, bringing beans to Dubai in our suitcases from favourite roasteries around the world. We love coffee, and we were tired of the sad old offerings available here, and so RAW was born. Established in July 2007, we decided it was time to fill the gap in the market for freshly roasted specialty coffee.

Celebrating 10 years. Here’s to 10 more!

Our new Vintage Blend is made up of two Single Origin coffees: Complex, vibrant, floral and sweet tropical fruit notes from a dry-processed African coffee, partnering beautifully with sweet, balanced, full-bodied depth from a Central American coffee. Flavours of plum and almond toffee, with a long, lingering, dark chocolate finish.

This beautiful coffee is best served unadulterated as an espresso or brewed coffee, but if you prefer partnering your coffee with heated milk, you will taste chocolate nut bar (think Snickers); toffee, brown sugar, brown spices and milk chocolate.
Quality coffee at every step.
IT’S WHAT WE DO BEST. KEEP IT LOCAL.
We offer specialty coffee roasting at our warehouse in Al Quoz, and the heart and soul of everything we do is the roasting room. We take our sourcing and roasting very seriously and we’re proud that the coffees produced reflect a fervent attention to detail at every stage - attention you can taste.
NO CHEMICALS OR GMO’S USED. ALWAYS NATURAL.
Nothing should get in the way of the perfect cup. We only use organic coffee that is produced without the aid of artificial chemical substances, such as certain additives or some pesticides and herbicides. And it doesn’t stop there. We also use organic ingredients throughout our menu.
WE ALWAYS TRADE FAIR, NO MATTER WHAT.
We trade fair and we care about our products, suppliers, processes and staff. We also care about the environment, our impacts and responsibility. Our vision is a world where all workers are free from exploitation and discrimination, and enjoy conditions of freedom, security and equity.
