Our Story

Establishing a coffee plantation on Aore Island, Espiritu Santo, Vanuatu was an opportunity that we couldn’t resist.  So, we did it. After a holiday trip to this wonderful island, we found a huge number of abandoned coffee trees left here by the French people. Being born and bred in the coffee industry, our retirement turned into a wonderful new adventure/venture. Seeing a huge need for work for the nivanuatu population, we decided to embark upon the new development of Aore Coffee and thereby provide work for many on this island we now call home. We also have been part of the development of selling small land packages to help get the coffee growing. A small income and lifestyle is available for any persons interested in having an easy laid back life here on Aore Island with all the help you need on hand. We have also opened a Coffee Roastery/Cafe on the plantation which is beneficial to everyone. We sell our freshly roasted coffee as beans or by the cup and having our new roaster there, you wont find fresher coffee anywhere else! Kiwis will know Murray Connolly.  He is the founder of Robert Harris Tea and Coffee in New Zealand many years ago. All through his life he has enjoyed many businesses but his one greatest passion and love is coffee.  Murray has a wealth of knowledge and we are putting it to good use here in Vanuatu. Under Murray’s guidance, Aore Island Coffee is establishing new nurseries, different varieties of coffee beans and providing a living for the local nivanuatu population. We hope to encourage the locals to learn to grow their own coffee giving them a sustainable income, allowing them the ability to become even more self sufficient for themselves and their families.
