We believe that while great coffee is an art, it is also a science.

About us

Dr. Monika Fekete is a highly skilled, innovative scientist with a strong sense for the commercial application of research outcomes. She has over 8 years experience working as a research chemist at prestigious organisations such as Monash University and the CSIRO.

As a coffee lover, Monika has searched Melbourne high and low for that perfect cup. She soon realised that while most coffee professionals are great artists, they often struggle with creating an objective, data-based framework to consistently improve their coffee quality.

This is why we have developed an unique 6-step process that just gets coffee specialists ADDICTed to coffee science! The result: deeper understanding and greater control of bean and brew quality.

I belive knowing the science behind why coffee taste so good is so important because it gives us the tools to not only make it taste better but more consistently. Monika helps us do this by ensuring the consistentcy of coffee through the Mythos and EK43 at The Bench Projects. She has also been vital in creating the perfect water and trials for my 2016 World Brewers Cup in Dublin, Ireland.
