Founded in 2008, Nucleus Coffee Tools quickly rose to prominence in the Australian coffee world. ONA Coffee Roastery, started by the founder of Nucleus Coffee Tools, Sasa Sestic, now boasts five cafés in Canberra, Melbourne and Sydney, and supplies ethically sourced, locally-roasted coffee to over 100 others. And these guys really know their stuff: in 2015, founder Sasa Sestic won the Australian Barista championships, only to be usurped in both 2016 and 2017 by Nucleus Coffee Tools’ very own barista, Hugh Kelly.
In 2015 they took the next logical step and announced their range of Nucleus Coffee tools, including the now-famous Nucleus Coffee Distributor NCD (formerly known as the ONA Coffee Distribution Tool and the OCD Coffee Distributor). Even, efficient coffee distribution via coffee distribution tools has never been faster or easier!
The Nucleus Coffee Distributor NCD was premiered by Sasa at the 2015 event (which he won) and has been used by baristas competing in the championships ever since.
However, Nucleus Coffee Tools doesn’t only cater to the pros: their affordable and easy to use tools are squarely aimed at the domestic barista, as part of their mission to bring top quality coffee and craft into the Australian kitchen.
