HELLO THIS IS ME //
founder & owner of Leuchtfeuer Coffee since 2017. Together with my lovely wife we try to source the most amazing coffees from around the world for you and I am currently responsible for every single roasted batch that is being packed & shipped out to you. Coffee – like for many others – and the passion for specialty coffee in particular has been in my blood for over a decade now. Out of pure curiosity I started out roasting privately on a small Hottop 250gr sample roaster in our basement years ago and developed the basic understanding of time & temperature and what effect these two variables have on the flavor of coffee. And believe me: Throughout this exciting journey I have probably and most definitely also roasted the worst tasting coffees as well but as we know…there simply is just no better way of learning a new skill than by just doing and the trial & error method.
From my first Loring training sessions mid 2017 until today I have roasted hundreds of batches, continuously invested in training (and will keep on doing that) and will most likely roast my 1000th batch of coffee on one of our two Loring roasters by the end of this year (2019).
I am extremely thankful for the feedback we receive at such an early stage of our brand to our coffees whether it’s via email, social media, on the phone or directly & in person in our roastery no matter if it’s good or bad: this was and will be the most important ingredient to making our products better!
Thank you so much for supporting and sticking with us so far
