About UsCoffee Creators, Makers & Lovers
We are coffee creators, makers & lovers
Coffee is our passion and super power! Quality coffee is at the centre of our ecosystem, just like it is the beating heart of any daytime hospitality venue or workspace.
By creating as a collective, we bring quality coffee to everyone, everywhere. We aim to cover the whole scope of coffee in just one organization, connecting coffee creators and industry professionals in the fields of:
Coffee, like roasters, baristas & trainers
Project, like concept developers & project managers
Design, like graphic designers, interior designers & stylists
Content, like writers, photographers & videographers
Quality is Essential
We might not believe in perfection, but we sure focus on quality. High Quality. In fact, we believe that well-structured, quality-based models are the only way to a successful and future proof business.
Together is Impact
Our collective is not only a means to work and learn together, but to catalyse impact as well. Together, we’re focusing on improving the coffee industry in terms of transparency, sustainability and social impact.
Winning means Losing
If we win someone or something else loses. We are not about that. When we create a coffee concept
everyone and everything involved should be a little better.
Transparency is Trust
The key to our collective is trust. To establish this trust, we are a 100% transparent. Open about why and how we do things. This means we discuss company structure, decision making, numbers, you name it.
Equality is Everything
We strive to achieve equality within our collective. We do this by upholding diversity on the one hand, and maintaining a strictly equal policy in terms of pay and commissions for our Espressionals and Friends on the other.
Imperfection is Staying real
We create concepts with a creative human touch. By embracing imperfection, we allow ourselves to create without boundaries, to add value, to be present, to enjoy ourselves, to be better every day and to stay real.
