Besides producing great coffee, CafeBoutique takes an active role in Ukrainian SCA championships (Specialty Coffee Association). ‘We take part in the activities and take on the role of a sponsor, by supplying coffee.’

Meeting Giesen

‘CafeBoutique in Ukraine learned about Giesen by reading through client reviews on the internet. But we were also informed by the company of Mare Terra (Giesen distributor from Spain). We ultimately decided to make the purchase based on functional value, pricing and recommendations from people we trust. We also decided to go for Giesen due to its’ appearance!’

Dmytrio is happy about his purchase; ‘Our roasting experience significantly changed since our purchase from Giesen. This was mainly because of sufficient functionalities, the good roasting process control and a good balance between design and batch size. This applies particularly to the W6A. With regard to the W15A: we are just now exploring its’ possibilities!’

Future ambitions of CafeBoutique in Ukraine

‘Of course we look ahead! We already have our eyes set on the W30/45/60A Coffee Roasters, and destoners for them!’

Let’s hope for many great roasts to come, and hopefully another upgrade in both machine size, and coffee roasting experience!
