Fjord Coffee is a joint coffee roasting project by the Berlin based cafes, Silo Coffee & Father Carpenter Coffee Brewers. We aim to source coffees that have exceptional qualities, usually gained through education and infrastructure at the origin of the coffee and also coffees that contribute to an economically sustainable relationship between coffee farmers at origin and coffee drinkers.
We know what it takes to run a specialty coffee shop and in turn strive to lead with a customer orientated product and service. It is really important to us at Fjord that the customers of our customers are delighted with the coffee they drink and we will work closely with coffee shops to help achieve that goal.
We are looking to develop relationships with cafes and coffee shops across Europe who have a desire to create a top quality cafe experience, with particular emphasis on coffee quality and standards to ensure customers are presented the coffee they have been looking forward to.
We have multiple channels that we source coffee through. From importers, to exporters, to directly with the producers. We do not say we do 'direct trade', in the classical sense of the term, as we believe that this term is grossly misused a lot of the time for marketing propaganda purposes.
We trust in certain 'middle-men' to source coffee ethically for us, and they do. We also go to coffee origin countries and buy coffee either from the farmer or the wet-mill. We buy coffee in ways that we can buy coffee, always ensuring that no one is being trodden on..
The Father Carpenter mission to 'up the quality of life' is also deeply rooted in our Fjord philosophy.
Our coffee is roasted on a Probat 12kg Probatone running on natural gas. We have installed 3 additional Omega temperature probes to give us further data to track in the roasting software that we use, called Cropster Roasting Intelligence.
Our roasting approach is a blend of old world and new world, in that we have adopted certain techniques from the 'well developed style' of Scott Rao and contemporary Melbourne scene as well as techniques of heat application from the 'Nordic style', typically regarding high RoRs and short development times.
We sell coffee, so we figure you'd like to know about them..
