Over 1,700 employees in total work for CAFEA Group companies. We have their commitment and loyalty to thank for our business success. That's why it’s very important to us that all of our employees enjoy the right working conditions to suit them.


In 1896, Johann Dietrich Rothfos, owner of the ‘Im Grünen Tal’ garden café and general store in St. Magnus, near Bremen, started selling his green coffee beans for customers to roast at home themselves in a pan.


Our products are produced in eight of our own plants. Each plant uses state-of-the-art facilities and processes. When it comes down to it, quality is our top priority. We monitor this in every single step of the production process.
