About our range
In our espresso category you will find a large selection of coffees that are ideal for fully automatic machines, stovetop pots and portafilters. It is particularly important to us that the origin, the processing and the terroir in which the coffee plants grow are reflected in the cup. We deliberately don't roast our coffee too dark, so that the fantastic characteristics of our green coffee are preserved. Whether it's a strong espresso for the cappuccino or a single variety and deliberately light roast - you'll find what you're looking for.
Our heart beats particularly for our filter coffees. Deliberately light(er) roasted to emphasize the incredible variety of flavors that is in each and every one of our fantastic specialty coffees. A nice balance between exciting acids, experimental processing and the terroir is always particularly important to us. All coffees are ideal for preparation with the V60, Chemex, Aeropress, French Press or the classic filter coffee machine.
Here you will find the best specialty coffees from seasonal harvests and the most exotic coffee varieties, of which we only buy small quantities. Clear in taste and with exceptional flavor profiles that are the result of excellence throughout the process.
In our Premium Picks category you will find uncompromisingly the world's best coffee lots that we can find. These usually always include absolute competition lots (World Barista Championships, World Brewers Cup), Cup of Excellence winners and geishas produced in a wide variety of processing methods by our long-standing cooperation partners in Panama, from whom we source directly: the Hacienda La Esmeralda, Lamastus Elida Estate , Finca Deborah, Lerida Estate or Savage Coffee and many more! Strictly limited. Consciously and only lightly roasted as a filter to particularly emphasize the breathtaking aromas of the green coffee.
Seasonal freshness and quality are always the focus of our coffees. That's why we get our specialty coffees fresh from our partners year after year. Our espresso varieties are available in black bags and our filter coffees in white bags. Of course, our coffees are suitable for all common preparation methods, such as in a French press, Chemex, Hario V60, filter coffee machine or all common fully automatic coffee machines (Jura, De Longhi, Sage etc.) and also portafilter machines, so that both the Third Wave coffee enthusiast as well as the very classic coffee drinker will be happy with us.
Direct trade, exclusively specialty coffees, a sustainable, transparent value chain and quality control from the origin to the coffee roasting plant in Wedel are particularly important to us. All Leuchtfeuer Coffee coffees are at or in some cases well above the SCA (Specialty Coffee Association) score of 86 points.
State of the art roastery
In our state of the art coffee roastery in Wedel, which is one of the most modern and innovative in Europe in terms of equipment and structure, all coffees are individually roasted, packaged and shipped from here to Germany and all over the world. Leuchtfeuer Coffee has set itself the task of constantly looking out for new technologies that can make our product even better. In this respect we are certainly among the pioneers. You are always welcome to visit us in our coffee roastery. We would also be happy to give you a small tour or guided tour of our production facility and will be happy to answer your questions.
How do we process orders?
Fast handling and processing of your order is particularly important to us and your order will usually be shipped on the same day that we receive it. We ship exclusively with DHL, DHL Express or UPS and of course you will receive a shipping confirmation including a tracking number for your order as soon as your package has left our roastery.
More than just "fair trade"
The current Fairtrade minimum price for a pound (lb) of coffee (Arabica) is currently $1.40. If it is an organic certified coffee, about $0.2 is added. Our raw coffee purchase prices (as of 2023) for all coffees are on average four to five times higher than the Fairtrade minimum price. For some of our very exclusive coffees (premium picks), such as our offered Geishas from Panama, but also our coffee from Kenya, we pay eighty or nine times the current Fairtrade minimum price directly to the origin. We want to make sure that everyone involved in the value chain is doing well and that we are paying a really fair price for the great quality. As a brand that is still very young, it is our medium to long-term goal to obtain all coffee directly from the origin and to further expand and strengthen our relationships with the farmers at origin.

You can find all information about the origin, the respective region or the cooperative from which we get the coffee or in which the coffee was harvested or processed "Washing Station", as well as information about the type of processing, but also about the coffee preparation method we recommend You on the respective product pages of the coffees.
