Das Highlight in der Kaffeeküche: Die Kaffeemühle
Ein Schlüsselfaktor für die gelungene Zubereitung von Kaffee ist der Mahlgrad, dieser beeinflusst den Kaffeegeschmack erheblich. Alle Mühlen wurden von uns ausführlich getestet.
Aromatisch und komplex - Kaffee von Hand gebrüht
Mit jeder Brühmethode erhältst du ein einzigartiges Geschmackserlebnis. Hier sind unsere beliebtesten Kaffeezubereiter, mit denen du deinem Kaffee das volle Aroma entlockst.
Für deine Kaffeezubereitung ist das Verhältnis von Kaffee zu Wasser essenziell: Feinwaagen helfen dabei genau abzuwiegen sowie die Extraktionszeit zu messen.
Wasserkocher mit Temperatureinstellung
Die Wassertemperatur hat einen großen Einfluss darauf, welche und wieviele Aromen aus deinem Kaffee gelöst werden. Wasserkocher mit Gooseneck helfen dir beim präzisen Aufbrühen.
Kaffee Zuhause genießen
Der Kaffeegeruch strömt durch die Wohnung, du sitzt auf der Couch und das was dir fehlt ist eine schöne Tasse.
Full-bodied and mild coffee
In April 2016 we travelled to Colombia to discover new coffees. We found them in the north of the country. The coffee from the Sierra Nevada inspires us with its taste, which reminds us of the sweetness of caramel and hazelnuts – a result of the natural aroma of the coffee cherry. It is full-bodied, very balanced and pleasantly mild!
Sierra Nevada coffee is suitable for almost all types of coffee preparation, whether you use the French Press, espresso pot, filter coffee machine or hand filter – the Sierra Nevada tastes wonderfully balanced.
Roasted with care and tradition
Our roasting masters roast Sierra Nevada coffee for about 15 minutes at 210 °C. Due to the traditional drum roasting the fine coffee aromas unfold to its full potential and the coffee shows no signs of bitterness.

The Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta region is known as a traditional coffee growing area
Sierra Nevada means snow-covered mountain ranges. The highest peaks, 5,775 m, are only 45 km from the Caribbean coast, which is why Sierra Nevada is considered the highest coastal mountain range in the world. Coffee is cultivated here at altitudes of 900 m – 1,600 m and is harvested once a year, from October to December. The coffees from the Sierra Nevada have beautiful nutty, caramel and chocolaty flavors. They are full-bodied, very balanced and pleasantly mild.
During our trip in April 2016 through Colombia we tasted and evaluated countless coffee samples. On a „Cupping Table“ we discovered our favorite coffee: The coffee from the Coocafe cooperative stood out for us because it tasted even more aromatic and balanced than most other coffees. To establish a direct commercial partnership with Coocafe, we visited the cooperative in the municipality of Ciénaga. Their name „Coocafe“ stands for „Cooperativa de Cafés Especiales Sierra Nevada“.
Coocafe was founded in 2008 and is an association of currently 38 farmers, 10 of whom are women. With Coocafe we strive for a long-term partnership. We are happy to contribute to the development and support the cooperative through our coffee purchases. All farmers of the cooperative grow their coffee plants purely organically and use only organic fertilizers. Our Sierra Nevada coffee is certified organic (by the DE-ÖKO-001 Organic Control Board) and free of pesticides and additives.
Update October 2017: In Discussions with COOCAFE revealed that they lacked a room for quality control, but they did not have the financial means to set up the so-called Quality Lab. As a result, we guaranteed COOCAFE a „quality premium“ in addition to the purchase price for the last harvest, which was invested in setting up a Quality Lab. The lab is already in heavy use and allows the cooperative to carry out quality controls during the harvest, giving the farmers very quick feedback and tips.
