Dave's Koffiebranderij is a micro-coffee roasting company that started with a love for delicious, honest coffee. In addition to coffee, we also sell wonderful tea and lush chocolate.
We try to buy the coffee as transparently as possible. We want to know who the coffee farmer or cooperative is, how the coffee is grown and the steps that the coffee travels down to in our roasting industry.
Quality and taste are our priority. Sometimes it is possible that we find the non-organic variant tastier than the organic variant. We taste everything ourselves and will make a good assessment when we do not like it, we will not sell it. Sometimes organic certification is not possible because the farmer does not have enough money for this. In any case, we ensure that we have as many organic products as possible, certified or non-certified. Because we ourselves are not certified organic, we cannot state on our packaging that the products we package are organic.
At many offices, catering establishments, restaurants and also at home, coffee and tea is just a drink, should not cost too much and should be easy to make. Often it does not even have to be really nice.
We roast the coffee with care in order to keep the terroir in the coffee, because every coffee tastes different. The filter and espresso beans are therefore light roasted. For our customers who prefer a full dark taste, we have Dark Roast coffee. Besides Single Origin coffee (from one farm, one cooperative or one geographic area) we also have a nice blend of coffees we offer. We sell whole beans, but we do grind the coffee with love when needed.
Coffee is a seasonal product. We exchange our range regularly.
We also buy our tea as Organic certified when possible. Since we do not have a SKAL certificate ourselves but do pack the tea, we are not allowed to put Organic on our labels.
The Bean-to-Bar chocolate that we sell is Organic and often Direct Trade. The producer of the chocolate bars buys the cocoa beans directly from the farmer or produce the cocoa themselves, after which they make beautiful chocolate.
You are more than welcome to visit us every Saturday at the Zuidermrkt in Amsterdam.
