Together we can change the way coffee is perceived, traded and prepared. By selling green raw coffee beans from farmers to consumers directly, we aim at revolutionizing the second biggest commodity market in the world and making farmers become faces. We developed the world‘s first roast-grind-brew coffee machine to shift the roasting process to the customer and enable everyone to roast their own coffee.
From green beans to black coffee - at a single push of a button. What’s so special about it? A number of things. a) Drinking freshly roasted coffee will get you the freshest coffee ever tasted. b) It will also get you an extremely well-balanced coffee as the beans don’t stand a chance to develop the acidity and bitterness that usually derives from storing. c) Absolutely no waste. Bonaverde’s green beans come in jute bags - no paper, no plastic and certainly no aluminum! d) Last but not least, probably the most groundbreaking thing about roasting your own coffee: You’ll get the raw beans directly from the farmer. You skip what is currently up to 17 steps between the farmer and yourself, and gain complete transparency on your coffee bean’s value chain. And it also means that farmers finally get more for their beans!
After 2 years of burning beans we found the perfect temperature to time relation and finally perfected the art of roasting in this small machine. We use a rotary system within a high-alloyed stainless steel container and an air vent system that absorbs the smoke and only unleashes the scent of freshly roasted coffee beans.
Implementing a high quality ceramic cone grinder we are able to reduce grinding time and increase coffee powder consistency. Therefore, grinding takes less than 90 seconds and results in a 'fine' ground coffee powder that is perfectly suitable for making filter coffee.
We've integrated recycable water and coffee filters and are using a so-called rain shower brewing method. Due to the relatively small amount of beans the roasting process only takes 3-4 minutes, so your morning coffee will be ready once you get out of the shower.
We import our beans from selected farmers and sell them directly to the consumer via an online marketplace. By disintermediating the value chain and trading raw beans that are not subject to coffee taxation we are able to source high quality coffees and pay farmers fair prices. We exclusively trade pure Single Origin Coffee beans, as their purity allows customers to distinguish the tastes of different origins and identify their favorite grade.
Bonaverde is a small, dedicated team of young, sleepless Berliner entrepreneurs that made it their goal to revolutionize the coffee world. Around 2 years ago, Hans the founder started out with a vision: Build the world's first all-in-one coffee machine that would not only grind and brew, but also ROAST coffee.
We work day and night to get our baby - the all-in-one coffee machine - into the market to finally launch and grow our farmer community. We love the idea of bringing farmers and consumers closer together and finding out more about our daily coffee's origin. Interacting with coffee farmers and coffee lovers all over the world gives us the daily motivation and confidence to keep on working!
Hans, founder of Bonaverde, came up with the idea 2 years ago wanting to change the way coffee is traded, perceived and enjoyed. Actually having a law background couldn't stop him from putting all his career focus into this revolutionary project. He is a real "Berliner" and an incredibly passionate visionary who never stops working to make his dream become reality.
Felix grew up in Frankfurt and studied in Munich. But Berlin and the idea of developing his own business attracted his attention. Now covering the strategic and operational parts of Bonaverde he is passionately striving to build a sustainable business. He loves travelling and is excited to meet more and more partner farmers as well as coffee lovers all over the world.
