NT_LogoNorthern Territory Government

The Northern Territory is dynamic and progressive yet it retains a friendly relaxed pace that has made it such a popular destination for visitors and a great place to live. The population is the nation’s youngest, at a median age of just 31.3 years, but also the smallest with just over 235 000 people living and working in this vast expanse of land. Northern Territorians are typically vibrant, happy, outdoor-loving people who know how to enjoy life.

The population includes a diversity of more than 100 nationalities who share their cultures. In particular, due to the Northern Territory’s proximity to Asia, the Asian influences are very predominant. The capital city, Darwin is closer to Asia than to any of Australia’s major capital cities. Due to this proximity, the Northern Territory has developed strong diplomatic, cultural and economic ties with South-East Asia. Successive governments have capitalised on trading benefits by promoting the Northern Territory as Australia’s ‘Gateway to Asia’.

Throughout the Northern Territory Indigenous people, represent a quarter of the population and have a strong influence on the region’s culture.

The Northern Territory is over 1.42 million square kilometres in size and represents one fifth of Australia’s total land mass with climatic zones ranging from monsoonal tropics across the ‘Top End’ to the arid red-ochre deserts of Central Australia including the Tanami, Great Sandy and Simpson Deserts.

The Northern Territory’s vibrant economic growth and a raft of multi-million and multi-billion dollar developments position the region as one of Australia’s fastest-growing, with a prosperous future.

1-15_vinyl_decalOne Fifteenth Coffee

One Fifteenth Coffee aims to bring the community the best possible coffee experience. Inspired by the coffee culture in Australia, we wanted to introduce such craftsmanship to the local market. We are firm believer that craft arises from repetition of a known skill-set. To us, coffee-making is a daily ritual that is continually refined.

The consistency of a quality cup stems from time-tested methods of extraction aimed at releasing the most from the coffee bean. Our name is embedded in one of the simplest of these methods. 1:15 is a well-known coffee-to-water ratio that yields an ideal cup. Our focus is to source quality beans and to showcase the specific characteristics that set each batch apart.
