IT'S NOT JUST ABOUT THE BEANS.
We live for beautiful coffees. A green coffee bean contains a wide variety of flavors. They can contain anything from chocolate notes to sweet fruity or fresh acidic notes. It is our goal to introduce you to these flavor characteristics. All of the qualities of the bean will only come out once you develop them properly during roasting. After that, a good extraction is of significant importance when making coffee. A healthy dose of interest in the product, combined with the right training and education are essential to master this extraction.
We offer our beans, advice and training to entrepreneurs, so that you may also enjoy a good cup of coffee at your favorite hangout. Through our webshop, we also offer our beans to all the home barista's out there.

Stooker Roasting Company was founded by Onno van Zanten and Florian Hessel. In the previous years they gained experience in coffee shops and roasteries as barista and roaster. Now they go for the ultimate goal: getting as many people as possible to taste how amazing coffee can be.
Our team is immense.
We wouldn't be anywhere without the farmers that harvest our coffees with love, the pickers of the ripe coffee cherries and the men who operate the processing facilities. All the graders who select the defects from the clean coffee to ensure a clean cup. Also don't forget about the importers who go lengths to get the green coffee here, maintaining it's quality as good as they can. Finally the technical people behind the best espresso machinery, grinder and waterfilter installations. A huge amount of disciplines with one common goal: to have people taste what real good coffee is all about.
The origin of our company's name lies with the name of the building on Kastanjeplein, where Stooker is based. Around 1970 it harbored a liquor store. The similarities between stoking alcoholic beverages and roasting coffee sparked our interest. Many of the crafts have disappeared from the streets throughout the the years. We believe that our generation will restore this image partially. Stooker Roasting Company is the living example of that.
