Speciality Coffee

Speciality Coffee differs from the Commodity Coffees in Supermarket shelfs just like excellent wines should not be compared to mass produced blended wines. Speciality Coffee Houses can offer Single Origin coffees: this is today defined as coffee from a specific Farms or Cooperative offering a specific quality;  usually a specific variety of Coffea arabica and  a specific processing of these.

Pro equipment for home use

Speciality coffee does not need fancy and expensive equipment! A good manual grinder (in picture: Hario Skerton), an AeroPress (see picture) and cold, fresh water does the job excellently! By the way, coffee geeks gather yearly at the AeroPress championships! John Arild, chief coffee alchemist, ranked as number 5 in 2011!

Just give me the coffee and noone gets hurt!

Our philosophy

We, the team behind ‘Kaffee-Alchemie’, want to express our passion for high quality coffee; directly and fair traded. ‘Speciality Coffee’ differs from ‘Branded Coffees’ in that it normally comes from single origin and from recent seasonal harvests: we purchase excellent green beans from small coffee farmers who grow and processes unique coffees with great attention to quality. Taste and flavour of such coffees reflect the variety grown, the micro climate, and the specific preferred processing, which are characteristics you will not find in large bulks of commodity coffees branded by importers.

Special offers

You might think that filter coffee is an unfashioned way of brewing coffee. Completely wrong! With the growing attention to Speciality Coffee old and new filter brewing methods became very popular. One of these methods is the AeroPress-method. The AeroPress is a simple coffee maker made out of plastic which uses a small paper filter and "human force" to brew excellent coffee. We use this method routinely to brew coffee in our store and it is an excllent method for home use.

Our offer: AeroPress (incl. 350 Filters) + 250g of coffee: € 35,00
