Rising Coffee Price
Direct Trade and Transparency
A lot has changed since we bought our first green coffee. Yet, we still follow the same values and principles we had defined back then. How do we purchase coffee and what are the most important things we consider when doing so?
We have purchased coffee from various producers and traders in the past. Today, we source the majority of the coffees we buy with the help of a few partners that have proven to be ideal for us to ensure a reasonable, sustainable and transparent trade.

Brewing great coffee does not have to be complicated – and the recipes that help you with it do not have to be secrets.
Follow the recipes step by step and observe what's happening while brewing. After a while, you'll understand which parameters you need to tweak and adjust to reach the desired result.
How fresh should coffee be?
Generally speaking, fresh coffee is better than old coffee – but that's only part of the truth.
After roasting, coffee contains a lot of CO2, which escapes slowly throughout the following weeks. This is also the reason for the valve on the coffee bag (it's not there so you can smell the coffee): CO2 can leave the bag, which won't inflate, and oxygen won't get into the bag, which prevents a quick oxidation.
