Pitaya is full of all the good stuff like antioxidants, vitamin C, and magnesium, PLUS it’s vibrant hot pink colour makes it fun to drink! 
The pitaya is blended with mango and almond milk, which makes this gorgeous smoothie perfectly vegan. 







Darwin’s baristas are proud to brew Vittoria Coffee. Not only does Vittoria Coffee have a delicious and smooth taste, it is 100% Arabica, Australian Certified Organic and Rainforest Alliance Certified. 

How does Rainforest Alliance Certification make a difference?

  • It helps farmers better manage their land, control costs, improve crop quality and, often, increase yields.
  • It ensures farm workers have decent working conditions and wages, as well as access to education, healthcare and respectable housing for their families.
  • It protects forestlands, conserves wildlife habitat, requires reforestation and provides climate benefits.

In addition, Vittoria is proud to support OzHarvest – a food-rescue program that delivers otherwise thrown-out food to over 800 charities.
