OUR COFFEE


For good coffee, you need mountains, thick, old-growth forest and a lot of patience.
The small-holder farmers need patience to carefully select and handpick
the ripe coffee cherries. That’s what they do each day during harvest time. We
also need patience to go all the way on bumpy roads to meet them and find the
best coffee beans for you.

Now, please don’t burn those beans! Our roast master in Switzerland roasts to the
first crack when the beans pop like popcorn. It brings out the flavor of chocolate,
ripe fruits and nuts. After that, he roasts just a bit more to add the body and
sweetness of Café Crème. And for Espresso, it requires that little bit more so you
get the touch of bitterness you like.

But it’s not all about you. For the farmers’ families, our coffee is a force of good.
With each package you receive, you support a farmer’s child. We ask the ones
that know best what helps: the farmers, the communities… and randomized trials
of the MIT (even if it’s as unsexy as deworming). We do it ourselves, together with
professional partners. And, you choose the goal you want to support.

The whole world boils down to your cup. Coffee is the most complex thing
humans consume. When it comes to the flavors, it has twice as much going on
as red wine, whether French press or coffee automat, whether bialetti or Nespresso
machine. The important bit is what you choose to fill in. Fresh roasted
coffee delivered to your doorstep. As often as you wish.

WHERE OUR COFFEE COMES FROM

WHO WE ARE

Who is behind DIRECT COFFEE

Marie & Michaël

We love traveling all over the world. And wherever we go, we take our moka pot Mamucca with us. Thanks to her, we stayed awake when watching the magical sunrise over cappadocia landscape at five in the morning. And it was in Mamucca that we brewed the coffee we shared with the fisherman Hassan on Lalla Fatna beach in Morocco. He sometimes still calls to ask when we come back for a coffee. Last time we went to Ethiopia, Mamucca was in the backpack. Ethiopians have a thousand year old tradition of brewing their coffee – and we wanted to show them, how we do it. Now we want to bring Ethiopian coffee to you all. Just Mamucca stays at home, she is a little bit too slow.

Schoolmeals for the coffee farmers’ kids

February 8th, 2017|

We just reached our third goal: Thanks to you we fully funded our school meal project. We already implemented the project during the coffee harvest time in November 2016. And these are the results! Why school meals? Because we want to nudge the children to school! When we first met Wendmage Guta, the director of Bufeta Gibe school told us: „During coffee harvest time children often don’t come to school“. That's a very inconvenient truth but we don't want to ignore it. Even in certified fairtrade cooperatives like Bufeta Gibe (where child labor is forbidden) children help their parents during harvest time. This must [...]

Deworming pills for the coffee kids

February 7th, 2017|

Thanks to our supporters, we fully funded our deworming project. Now we want to show you the results. Enjoy the read! Why deworming? Deworming of school children is one of the most effective means to foster development. Worm infections can lead to abdominal pain, listlessness and malnutrition. Doesn’t sound like “Yeay, I’m going to school today”, hm? That’s why in a study by the Poverty Action Lab at MIT in Kenya, deworming treatments reduced absenteeism by a quarter. The absenteeism without treatment was around 6 days per month. Deworming reduced this number by 1.5 days. But the longterm effects are even more [...]

From the tree to your cup: The long journey of your coffee

December 23rd, 2016|

In December while the people in Zurich are busy searching for Christmas presents in the shopping streets, the coffee farmers in Ethiopia also go through their busiest time of the year: The strong branches of the coffee trees are over and over covered with green, yellow, and red coffee cherries. During the two months of harvest time, the smallholder producers roam their coffee forests day after day to pick the coffee cherries per hand. Ethiopia calls itself the birthland of coffee because the Arabica plant – which makes up for 60 percent of the world production of coffee – originated [...]

Eyeglasses for the coffee farmers’ children

December 5th, 2016|

We are just back from Ethiopia where we were able to implement our first social projects - including the eye test day for the children of our coffee farmers. Now we want to show you the achievements of your support. Enjoy the reading! Screening 870 children on a single day is a real challenge. First, all children went through a simple pre-screening with an E-chart eye-test and questions (for example whether they have headaches when they read on the blackboard). This pre-screening was performed by the teachers which the ophtamologist Dr. Jafar briefed before. Only those kids who reported problems or [...]

A short history of Cold Brew

September 2nd, 2016|

When we ask the people we meet at our coffee tastings around Switzerland whether they’ve ever heard of something called “Cold Brew”, most of them shake their heads. The “new” way of drinking coffee has not yet conquered Switzerland. Some newspapers wrote articles about it. And you can find it at a handful of coffee-geek-cafés – but even though the coffee giant Starbucks started selling Cold Brew in Switzerland, it’s mostly unknown to the Swiss. The Cold Brew mania started out some ten years ago in the US. Directly trading coffee roasters found a method to brew their specialty coffee [...]
