Diedrich Coffee Roasting Equipment

with 2 comments

The Diedrich family has been a part of the coffee, tea and cocoa trade for three generations. The family began growing in the Antigua region of Guatemala in 1912 and today is recognized for their expertise in every facet of the coffee industry.


Carl Diedrich, Sr., was involved in growing coffee from an early age and in the early 1960s, developed the first Diedrich roaster. The growing and nurturing skills he learned from his parents were in turn passed along to his sons, Martin, Stephan and Carl, Jr., who were also raised on the plantation.

The family moved from Guatemala to Orange County, California in 1972 and opened the first Diedrich Coffee house in Newport Beach. Martin took over the retail and wholesale business in 1982, which has grown to more than 60 coffee houses throughout the country. Stephan who acquired his father’s mechanical abilities, and Carl, Jr. founded Diedrich Manufacturing Company in 1980 to build the Diedrich coffee roasting equipment.

The roasting methods developed over generations by the Diedrich family maximize the inherent flavor of all coffees. Applying the correct combination of heat, airflow and timing, Diedrich roasters create the optimum environment for every varietal of coffee bean. This technology enables complete control over the roasting environment, accommodating the differences in growing altitudes, cultivation techniques and processing methods as well as bean size, density and moisture content.

Starbucks, Green Mountain in partnership talks

without comments

Starbucks wants dominant position in single-cup market – Green Mountain’s Keurig brewer now dominates segment – Green Mountain shares jump on news of negotiations (Recasts to add Starbucks talks; adds LOS ANGELES to dateline, bylines)

Starbucks Corp (SBUX.O) and Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR.O)have been in “ongoing partnership negotiations”, a source close to the talks told Reuters on Monday, sending Green Mountain stock surging.

Starbucks, the world’s biggest coffee chain, wants to be a big player in the new and fast-growing single-serve coffee segment that Green Mountain currently dominates with its Keurig one-cup brewers.

Starbucks on Sunday said it planned to announce a new product for the single-cup coffee market in the near future, reviving speculation of a tie-up between the two companies.

Hawaiian Kona Coffee

without comments

Kona coffee is the market name for coffee (Coffea arabica) cultivated on the slopes of Hualalai and Mauna Loa in the North and South Kona Districts of the Big Island of Hawaii. It is one of the most expensive coffees in the world. Only coffee from the Kona Districts can be described as “Kona”. The weather of sunny mornings, cloud or rain in the afternoon, little wind and mild nights combined with porous, mineral rich volcanic soil, creates favorable coffee growing conditions. The loanword for coffee in the Hawaiian language is kope, pronounced.

Kona Hawaii History

Samuel Ruggles brought coffee to the Kona District in 1828. The coffee plant was brought to the Kona district in 1828 by Samuel Reverend Ruggles, from Brazilian cuttings. English merchant Henry Nicholas Greenwell moved to the area and established Kona coffee as a recognized brand later in the 19th century. The former Greenwell Store and Kona Coffee Living History Farm have since become museums.

In other parts of the Hawaiian islands, it was grown on large plantations, but the 1899 world coffee market crash caused plantation owners to lease land to their workers. Most were from Japan, brought to work on sugarcane plantations. They worked their leased parcels of between 5 and 12 acres (49,000 m2) as family concerns, producing large, quality crops.

The tradition of family farms continued throughout Kona. The Japanese-origin families have been joined by Filipinos, mainland Americans, and Europeans. There are approximately 800 Kona coffee farms, with an average size of less than 5 acres (20,000 m2). In 1997 the total Kona coffee area was 2,290 acres (9 km2) and green coffee production just over two million pounds.

The Fairtrade Foundation

without comments

“Fairtrade is a strategy for poverty alleviation and sustainable development. Its purpose is to create opportunities for producers and workers who have been economically disadvantaged or marginalized by the conventional trading system. If fair access to markets under better trade conditions would help them to overcome barriers to development, they can join Fairtrade.”

Fairtrade is a tool for development that ensures disadvantaged farmers and workers in developing countries get a better deal through the use of the international FAIRTRADE Mark.

Fairtrade Labelling was created in the Netherlands in the late 1980s. The Max Havelaar Foundation launched the first Fairtrade consumer guarantee label in 1988 on coffee sourced from Mexico. Here in the UK, the Fairtrade Foundation was established in 1992, with the first products to carry the FAIRTRADE Mark launched in 1994. Read the history of Fairtrade labelling internationally .
