We are dedicated to providing amazing quality coffees, which we source from the most committed farmers around the world according to fundamental ethical values. As a coffee roaster, we strive to set the highest standards in Europe throughout our production process, ensuring that our customers receive the highest quality product possible.
We are here to create the most exciting flavour experiences for you. For this reason we are constantly looking for the most interesting and diverse flavor profiles from all over the world.
We source our coffee seasonally, meaning we only buy the right amount of the annual harvest to meet seasonal demand and to ensure we always have the freshest and most flavorful product for you.
We prefer to buy our coffee directly from the local producers in order to ensure direct quality control of the processing processes and on the other hand to guarantee that premium prices are paid for higher-quality coffees, which make a significant contribution to sustainability and the livelihood of the farmers.
Where we, as a young roasting company, are not yet able to trade our coffee directly, we only work with suppliers who trade the coffee transparently and directly and who meet our high ethical standards.
More than fair trade
Fairtrade certificates are a good start, but they fall far short of what we think of when it comes to truly fair coffee. That's why we don't focus on traditional fair trade prices, but on quality. We believe it is fair to pay a higher price for high-quality coffee, which is on average four times the fair trade price for our standard specialty coffees. For our premium picks even up to 80 times as much. This price corresponds to the quality and makes it worthwhile for the producers to continue to make the higher effort under the increasingly difficult climatic conditions and thus continue to produce high-quality coffee in the coming generations.
We store our seasonally sourced green coffee beans in our specially made, air-conditioned bean humidor (cooling storage) to keep all aromas as fresh as possible until roasting, thereby providing you with the freshest and most aromatic coffee.
We roast for sweetness and test until we have found the ideal roast profile for each coffee and to highlight each coffee's individual potential. We roast on one of the most innovative and environmentally friendly roasters from the Loring brand. For our Competition Coffees (Premium Picks) we roast in small batches on a Stronghold roaster.
As one of the most innovative roastierys in Europe, we use two so-called color sorters to sort our coffee in order to achieve the clearest possible result in the cup. The first sorter is used before roasting and sorts out the finest particles from our high-quality green coffee. After roasting, the coffee runs through five destoners and is then sorted by another color sorter, which sorts out beans that are too light or too dark.
