How tro order from us

Part 1.

bulletThe Plantation...

Tropical Highlands

Coffee prospers exclusively in tropical countries with high air humidity and an average temperature of at least 20°C. Coffee trees are usually planted in plantations, where they are maintained and preserved for up to 25 years.



The harvesting of the coffee cherries...

Depending upon cultivation area and altitude a coffee tree can bloom every season. Nine to ten months after the main bloom time, the cherries will be harvested. The cherries normally contain two beans.

  Usually two beans each


bulletPicking and drying...

Picking the cherries

   Air drying after washing


Manual labour plays an important role in the harvesting and sorting of the dark red and ripe cherries: Afterwards the valuable beans are separated from the cherries. Drying the washed beans requires much time and attention.

Stock exchange and trade, coffee goes on the journey...

World-wide coffee is considered as the second most important merchandise. The largest place of trading is the New Yorker stock exchange, where exclusively central and South American Arabica beans are traded. At the stock exchange in London, trading of the African Robusta beans is more common.

Filled up in bags of 60 to 70 Kilos, the long journey begins in the sea port of the country of origin to the various roasting companies. Coffee is still transported by ship, as it was centuries ago.
