Handling the Challenges of Logistics for African Coffee

Handling the Challenges of Logistics for African Coffee

The Red Sea situation has become more complex in recent months. Shipping companies are adjusting their routes to protect their crews, vessels, and cargo by avoiding the Red Sea and opting to sail around the Cape of Good Hope at the southern tip of Africa. Ships have to take longer routes, increasing the time and expenses involved in transporting coffee to Europe.

As a result, the shipping time from Africa was prolonged to twice the normal duration.

After our summer break you will savor new crop lots from Kenya and Ethiopia.
Thank you for being patient!

Time for a fabulous makeover!

Time for a fabulous makeover!

We reached the epic 1-0 milestone last December and suddenly felt like we were hitting senior status.

Time for a fabulous makeover!

Teaming up with our creative graphic designer, we whipped up a whirlwind of colorful and playful new vibes. Who says getting older can't be a blast?

We didn’t only focus on playfulness but also on sustainability. Our new coffee bags are crafted in a carbon-neutral facility and are, not only fully recyclable, but also are crafted using post-consumer recycled materials.

We trust you enjoy our transformation!

Trends we forsee in the Specialty Coffee market in 2023

Trends we forsee in the Specialty Coffee market in 2023

Discover the Future of Specialty Coffee in 2023: Unlocking the Next Wave of Innovations and Opportunities.

In the specialty coffee market, we expect to see a continued emphasis on sustainability, with more roasters and cafes focusing on ethically-sourced beans and environmentally-friendly practices. There may also be a general increase in the popularity of single-origin coffees, as well as an uptick in the use of specialty brewing methods like pour over and cold brew. In addition, we anticipate that the demand for specialty coffee drinks, such as nitro coffee and espresso-based beverages, will continue to grow. Some potential trends that will most likely emerge could include the continued growth of plant-based milk alternatives, an increased focus on sustainability and ethical sourcing, and the adoption of innovative and high-tech brewing technologies, also for home baristas.

Overall, we expect the specialty coffee market to remain vibrant and exciting in 2023 :-)

The specialty coffee market has seen some major changes in recent years, as more people are looking for unique and high-quality coffee experiences. From specialty blends to single-origin roasts, the variety and flavor profiles of coffee have become more diverse. Here, we'll take a look at some of the latest trends in the specialty coffee market that are sure to make a even bigger splash this year.

One of the latest biggest trends in the specialty coffee market is the rise of single-origin roasts. These coffees come from specific regions and are often more expensive than a blend, but they offer a unique flavor that is hard to replicate. Because each region has its own soil, elevation, and climate, the beans from each region produce a different flavor that can range from sweet and light to earthy and bold.

Another trend that has been gaining traction is the use of unique brewing methods. From pour-over to cold brew to espresso, there are a variety of ways to brew coffee that can enhance the flavor and create a unique experience. Many specialty coffee shops are using these methods to create unique drinks and flavor combinations.

Third, sustainability is becoming increasingly important in the specialty coffee market. Many coffee producers are using sustainable farming methods, such as shade-grown and organic, to reduce their carbon footprint and create a better product. Additionally, there has been a rise in the use of direct trade coffee, which is sourced from farmers who are paid a fair wage for their product.

Finally, the rise of specialty coffee shops has been a major factor in the growth of the specialty coffee market. These cafes serve specialty coffee drinks and often feature unique flavor combinations, like mixing other drinks with coffee in espresso. Many of these shops also offer a variety of specialty food and pastries to go along with their coffee.

Overall, the specialty coffee market has seen some major changes in recent years, and these trends are sure to continue. From single-origin roasts to unique brewing methods, the variety and flavor profiles of specialty coffee have become more diverse and exciting. Additionally, sustainability, fair-trade practices, and specialty coffee shops have all played a role in the growth of the specialty coffee market.

As always, we do our bit in this ;-)
