Good coffee – better channel

Editor TVCs, News Make a Comment

Viaduct Harbour-based visual content company BrandWorld has partnered with Auckland artist/actor/writer/director Dwayne Cameron to tell Orb Coffee’s story to the world, and spreading the news that Orb is now available in supermarkets.

Orb Coffee has won over 18 awards at the hotly contested NZ Coffee Roaster Awards including being one of only two brands to win the Supreme Award twice as well as five gold medals.

Orb Coffee (“sourced from some of the best coffee-growing regions in the world”) is now in supermarkets and who better to tell the story of the art of good coffee than an artist, says BrandWorld senior producer Rachael Weaver. “Dwayne is a real talent. His art is amazing. He quickly understood how to help us capture Orb Coffee’s amazing story and tell it in an incredibly powerful way in a very short time.”

Sean Wiggans, group brand manager, coffee for Cerebos Gregg’s, says partnering with Dwayne Cameron was an inspired way of underlining the craft that goes into making Orb Coffee. “The presenter was always going to be key to telling the story we needed to tell,” he said.

“The ad absolutely delivers this and furthers our quest to be the best damn coffee in the civilised world”

BrandWorld’s Orb Coffee story went to air through BrandWorld’s Discover platform last week. It will run for a number of weeks.

About Orb Coffee
Orb’s challenge to itself is to be The Best Damn Coffee in the Civilised World. It’s a high bar because the people at Orb understand that making a truly great cup of coffee is not easy. To achieve its goals it sources some of the best beans in the world from some of the best coffee growing regions of the world, including the famed Yirgacheffe region in the lush highlands of Ethiopia, the birthplace of coffee, and the Morobe region in Papua New Guinea; it exclusively uses single origin beans for its plunger and filter ground coffee; it has developed blends of coffee through repeated trial and error that deliver outstanding flavours even through the espresso process; and it has worked hard to perfect the best roast level for each of its single origins and blends to deliver coffees that will delight coffee lovers around the world. It must be doing something right because so far Orb has won 18 awards at the prestigious New Zealand Coffee Roaster Awards, including five gold medals. After picking up the Supreme Award at the 2014 awards for the second time (2006 and 2014), it is now only one of two brands to have won the Supreme Award twice.
