For a quarter of a century now, we’ve had the privilege of providing fellow Victorians with the best damned coffee we possibly can. To celebrate, we’re throwing the largest damned party we possibly can, and we’d love to have you join us!

Fantastico turns 25!

An evening of food, drink, and musical merriment, enjoying never-before access to all of the backstage, secret areas of our Fantastico Roastery. Party in the roasting department. Party in the warehouse. Party on the rooftop patio, or the backlot, or even our office! Nothing is off limits, except maybe the basement.

Above all, we’re proud to announce performances from six of our favourite artists:
