Onno is one of the owners and roasts the coffee for Stooker. The roastery is based in the west of Amsterdam. Here they roast specialty coffee beans for the hospitality industry. Besides that, they also focus on the in-home market through their webshop where you can buy small and big bags of coffee. The perfect way to drink specialty coffee at home. Their view on coffee roasting is also the reason why they started their business. Onno: ‘7 years ago, there wasn’t a lot of specialty coffee in the hospitality industry. We wanted to make specialty coffee available for everyone.’
They choose to roast on a Giesen because they think it’s very well-built. Onno: ‘I love the feel and the heaviness of the machines. It’s almost like a Volvo, it always starts.’ Soon, they are planning on buying another roaster. After 7 years, it’s almost time to scale up.
The roasting style Stooker uses has developed over the years. According to them, they sell developed coffee. Onno: ‘We do roast light, or at the lighter side of the roasting spectrum, but developed.’
