Our Story

Coffee Lab Story

Coffee Lab was founded in 2011 with an aim to optimize the production of high-quality specialty coffee and apply the 3rd wave coffee concept to everyday life. We follow DIRECT TRADE principles with absolute consistency. We work directly with selected and dedicated producers in all countries with tradition in coffee. We offer better prices that improve the lives of farmers and ensure the SUSTAINABILITY of the coffee production chain.

Our focus on specialty coffee gives us the opportunity to offer higher prices up to 30% which increases the income of farmers, which in turn offers them a better quality of life.

At the same time, we have the ability of FULL TRACEABILITY, so we know all the characteristics of each coffee bean that reaches our hands. The processing and roasting process of coffee in our own facilities is done through procedures tailored to the specific features of each coffee variety. And finally, we have absolute control of the overall quality of the coffee that we supply to our stores in Greece and abroad.
