We are coffee importers based in the Netherlands and Colombia. We are committed to bringing you some of the best coffees from Latin America with an emphasis on Colombia.

We are Direct Trade to the core. We are in the unique position of having our own exporting company in Medellin, a concept we are repeating in other countries. In our quality lab in Medellin we receive hundreds of samples a month from which we only select the best to be exported. To guarantee the best physical quality of the exported coffee we are also setting up our own dry mill specialized in micro lots. By keeping the supply chain as short as possible we guarantee that the largest part possible – of the price you pay – reaches the producer.

With a select group of farms we have built up long-term relations where we accompany them in their struggle to always keep improving quality and production. High environmental and social standards are a base line for all our producing partners whom we visit regularly.

From our base in Amsterdam we can send our coffees all over Europe and beyond. We speak, Dutch, English, German Spanish and French. So don’t hesitate contacting us. Are you interested in more? We can ship worldwide directly from Colombia and even find a coffee especially for you.

We can supply our coffees with extensive background information and imagery, something rooted in the origin of the company, which was founded by two journalists on a quest for great coffees with great stories.

Luz Soraida Restrepo and her three daughters produce a subtle and pleasant coffee with a fragrance of milk chocolate with a hint of peach and spices.

Luz Soraida bought this spectacular but neglected farm a year ago with the family’s savings as a college fund for her daughters. With the help of her brothers she managed to quickly turn the place around.
