Founded in 2011 by Jeff Kennedy and partner Bridget Dunn, Acme & Co is the brainchild of Kennedy, an NZ Specialty Coffee Association inaugural Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, founder of Caffe L’affare and Godfather of NZ Espresso.
The first products sold under the Acme name were the Acme sausages, though the brand is probably most well recognised through the cups that are sold all over the world.
Acme & Co now offers 2kg bags of Certified Organic Type 55 flour milled from selected organically grown high protein bread wheats.
Suitable for a wide range of bold and attractive breads, particularly those produced by the fermented dough process, it is ideal as all-purpose flour and very suitable for pasty production.
All Acme & Co Bakery now use this high protein, low ash flour in all its breads. Kennedy said customers love the new taste and crunch of Acme Baguettes, Acme Sour Dough Loaves and Acme Oli Rolls.
In 2013 Kennedy and Dunn opened Prefab, the 180 seater flagship café for Acme at 14 Jessie Street, Te Aro, Wellington. Prefab is the test lab for all Acme products, from the coffee that Kennedy roasts every day to the jams and conserves the kitchen makes from seasonal produce.
