A few years ago …
… a cup of coffee was nothing more than a delivery truck for caffeine. It didn’t really matter what it tasted like, it just had to wake you up in the morning or get you through a long afternoon. But the times have changed. Today every single step of the manufacturing process is important for a perfect cup of coffee and is therefore taken very seriously by us.
For us, this begins with the selection and purchase of our coffees and the handshake with the coffee farmer right on his or her farm. When it comes to purchasing raw coffee, we go above the usual fair trade prices – because we view coffee farmers as partners on an equal footing and we always treat them with respect. For their efforts in planting, harvesting and processing exceptional coffee and the focus on quality and sustainability, we pay prices many times higher than the usual market or fair trade prices. Also, we don’t discuss and we don’t haggle – we pay what the producers expect for their work.
All the coffee that we cannot buy on location, we get from friends and from befriended dealers which we know and which we can trust.
We stand at the end of the production chain and its history and our goal is to roast clean, sweet and balanced coffees with a unique character as a counterpart to large industrial roasters.
