The Sydney coffee roaster that names its products after the pecking order in a wolf pack has a new crib, or should that be den?

Alpha blend and Omega Single Origin (and there's a Beta in there too) are on the shelves at Wolfpack's newly opened HQ in Mortlake, alongside a light cafe menu.

"There's an edible smoothie bowl and a roast beef toastie with onion and a bourbon relish," Wolfpack co-owner Daniel Plesko says.

The new site opened after months of construction, after Plesko and his wife Irene outgrew their original premises down the street.

"Mortlake is one of those forgotten suburbs – no one used to want to live here because of the gas works," Plesko says. "But it has really changed, with lots of residential development."

The sprawling, Scandi-inspired design weds indoor/outdoor cafe with roaster, with Plesko about to start pushing its coffee hard to the wholesale market.

Open Mon-Fri 6.30am-3pm; Sat-Sun 7am-3pm.
