Blending it in the Bay

Fusion Coffee are a true local favourite, and that’s just the way they like it.

Run by Fiona and Murray Linton, the coffee roastery, store and café has been providing locally roasted brews and coffee beans for 21 years. Based on Totara Street in Mount Maunganui, people can sit back and chill in the funky warehouse-style premises, enjoy their Fusion Coffee and watch the beans being roasted onsite.

“It’s a great place to have a meeting,” says Fiona. “People also love to come here to buy their beans, see the roasting process and to talk to the staff. We enjoy the banter with customers.”

Fiona, who has lived in the Bay for 36 years, is Fusion’s roaster. Together with her team she has created blends with true local flavour, like the full-bodied medium roast ‘Arataki’ or the ‘Matakana’ blend with smooth hints of rich chocolate, vanilla and spiced apple notes.

“We want to be the port of call for the Bay’s coffee drinkers. We love bringing coffee beans from all over the world to the Bay and blending them for locals to enjoy right here.”

“We’re just here for people who like good, fresh coffee.”
