The Journey of Our Coffee

Our coffee’s story begins long before it reaches your cup. Our commitment to ethical sourcing is not just about the end product; it’s about supporting a fair, responsible coffee trade that benefits everyone involved – from the farmer to the barista to you, the consumer.

In collaboration with local coffee bean originator(s) and roastery(s) in Amsterdam, we ensure that each bean is roasted to perfection, unlocking complex flavors and aromas. Our partners’ expertise in selecting and roasting beans complements our vision of providing an exceptional coffee experience. This partnership underlines our dedication to bringing you not just a beverage, but a cup of coffee rich in aroma, flavor and quality.

By choosing ethical coffee, we support practices that pay fair wages to farmers, promote sustainable farming methods, and ensure that every step in the coffee production process is conducted with respect for people and the environment.
