Roasting, packing and shipping coffee according to artisanal methods
Lieke and Bas founded the Fascino artisanal coffee roasting company in 2006 – inspired by their great passion for good coffee and with a single clear mission, that everyone should be able to enjoy fresh, tasty and honest coffee. Or as Lieke puts it, “we love good coffee and think everyone should be able to enjoy good coffee.”
Fascino now delivers to business customers, customers in the food service industry and private individuals. What sets them apart from other coffee roasters? Freshness comes first! If you order today, the coffee beans will be roasted at Fascino today and delivered to almost any address in the Netherlands tomorrow. In addition to their own brand Fascino, they also supply private label coffee.
Trends in coffee packing
In the video, we see the Fascino packing process in Weert. Thousands of kilos of coffee beans are roasted here every year and, after briefly being left to cool down, packed. The quality of the bean determines the flavour. The packaging is essential to assuring that quality, which is why the packagings are sealed.
Thanks to the speed and flexibility of the roasting operation and the packaging process, Fascino has been able to respond effectively to market developments for 14 years. Nowadays, one of the most important trends is customers’ increased information requirements. For example, both business customers and consumers want clear information about quality, sustainability, where the products come from and the structure of the chain. Besides high quality and flavour, sustainability and traceability are important aspects that also influence the packaging and the packing process.
At Fascino, this trend is reflected in the packaging. Besides protecting the coffee and explaining which coffee it contains, the packaging also tells you who roasted the coffee and whether the coffee was purchased directly from the farmer. But perhaps the most important thing for Fascino is the freshness sticker, which says when the coffee was roasted and packed.
