Dr Earnest


Established in 2015, Dr Earnest is Iguanas own specialty coffee brand.

With help from world-renowned organisation Trade-Aid, we proudly source only the best fair trade and organic coffee beans, straight from the farmers who grew them, from a variety of world-wide locales.

The beans are roasted in-house daily, ensuring we provide our customers with the freshest, best tasting coffee Hamilton has to offer.

For those that can't get enough, and want to take the great taste of Dr Earnest home with them, we have 250g and 1kg bags of wholebeans (or ground upon request) available for purchase in-store.
