In 1999, in a small Italian restaurant in Sydney, Sam Gabrielian made and served his first cup of coffee, and so, we begin.
Sam rapidly honed his skills as a Barista, purchased his first cafe in Chatswood in 2001, and began intensively and obsessively researching coffee. Sydney’s coffee drinkers soon discovered the secret.
Sam’s cafe more than quadrupled its coffee output. Accolades began to flood in including Best Coffee in Chatswood in 2001, 2002 & 2003 and Sydney Barista Champion in 2004. In 2005, Sam was invited to be Chairman of the Barista Guild, and has since judged competitions the world over. In 2006, Sam bravely sold his café, and embarked on a voyage of discovery. He visited remote coffee producing regions in South America to taste and source the perfect beans. He then travelled to France and Italy - seeking secrets of the optimum roast, the most delicious blends and the ultimate cup.
Brimming with knowledge and a myriad of coffee experiences, he returned home and formed Caffe di Gabriel in 2006.
Today, Caffe di Gabriel sells premium coffee to cafes, restaurants and several exclusive establishments throughout Australia, as well as Asia and Europe. We also sell premium quality tea, chocolate and coffee equipment, and provide hands-on training to every barista who prepares our coffee.
