We strive for transparency across the whole coffee supply chain. When purchasing green coffee, fair agreements, direct trade contracts and transparent price structures are crucial to us. Instead of relying on certifications, we count on relationships with real people. The prices we pay for green coffee are always higher than the minimum fair trade price.
It goes without saying that we have to spare the earth's resources and behave ecologically – both privately and in business. This begins with the cooperation with producers who make use of resources in a sustainable fashion and support biodiversity and ends with an efficient use of resources and optimizing recycling processes and packaging.
At the Drip Roasters Café located right at Eigerplatz in Bern (Belpstrasse 69) you will find freshly roasted specialty coffee, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, something to snack and a cozy place to relax. Depending on your preferences, we prepare your coffee as hand drip or with our Synesso espresso machine. As an alternative to cow milk, we offer plant-based milks without a surcharge. We have pastries and, if you need a small meal, we prepare an avocado toast for you. Whether for your coffee break, to come work on your laptop, for a coffee after lunch, or for a beer with friends – we are looking forward to your visit!
We have been roasting selected specialty coffees since 2018, available in our online store as well as in a selection of stores, restaurants and cafés. At the beginning of 2021, we moved our roastery to a new location in the lower Galgenfeld area of the city. We have more space and an improved infrastructure, that allows us to grow sustainably. Here, we have continued what started in the city's Breitenrain neighborhood: We experiment with countless roast and brew recipes and taste lots of different coffees to offer you only the best of them. Only the coffees that fulfil our high expectations regarding taste and quality find their ways into the bag or cup.
In late 2022, we decided to take a trip to Mexico in order to look for a new coffee for our offer. We had previously been in touch with several exporters from Mexico and limited our search to a specific region. By way of New York City, we were headed to Mexico, where we spent a few days on the coast, before reaching Oaxaca de Juárez, the capital of the state of Oaxaca. Here, we met up with Laura who works for Ensambles, a Mexican company that exports specialty coffee and also runs a farm of its own.
