We are Coffee Circle.

Coffee Circle is all about outstanding coffees delivered to your door. Directly traded and roasted in Berlin, Coffee Circle educates and sells through its website Every year the team sources organically grown, high quality coffee and ensures fair prices by visiting the origins of their coffees personally. In addition, Coffee Circle invests 1 EUR per kg of roasted coffee sold, into projects at the grower communities to improve living conditions of the farmers and their families. The funds are invested in the areas of health, education and agricultural training. Coffee Circle promotes its projects not as charitable giving, but as compensation for the high quality coffee its suppliers produce. Coffee Circle has been inspiring people since 2010.
