The mission of the company

Coffee is our great passion, the countless aromas, the crema, the taste, its effect & the ritual. Unfortunately, coffee as a raw material is anything but environmentally and human-friendly, so we purchase our green coffee as directly as possible to ensure respect for producers and the environment. The coffee beans are roasted locally, by hand, and only as much is produced as is needed. The coffee bean is therefore awarded the value it deserves!  

Why Giesen?

The drum roasters of the company Giesen from the Netherlands combine tradition, function, and beauty with the most modern technology and control. Giesen is constantly developing its coffee roasting machines, of course always with a focus on coffee culture and its history.

The biggest advantage of the roaster

Because the roaster is electrically operated, we can rely on eco – electricity (100% hydroelectric power) or renewable energy.

Roasting decaf coffee

Decaf coffee is often dismissed by specialty coffee roasters as an uncool coffee category. The consumption of decaffeinated coffee beans has been steady over the past 10 years. On average, decaf coffee is about 15% of overall coffee consumption and it appears that specifically, millennials have taken a growing interest in enjoying decaf coffee beverages.

Roasting phases; different stages of roasting

The chemistry of coffee roasting has always fascinated me. We should consider the roasting process as a fundamental stage in a coffee’s journey from seed to cup. It unlocks the potential of the green coffee beans by creating hundreds of aromatic compounds. It also makes the beans brittle and porous enough to prepare the coffee for grinding and brewing.
