At KOPKOPI we deal with specialty coffees and are fascinated by good design. Apart from the quality of the beans we pay a lot of attention to the packaging – we want our product to be both delicious and beautiful. We import our coffees from Indonesia ourselves – we know all the farmers we get them from.
It all started in 2019, where we built a specialty coffee trading platform for farmers and roasters in Indonesia. Through COVID we moved to Europe and on December 2, 2020, KOPKOPI was founded in Gdansk, Poland.
Our bean selection consists entirely of specialty quality coffees, scored according to the demanding SCA (Specialty Coffee Association) rating scale, sourced from sustainable and organic farms on different continents with specific microclimates, fully showcasing the terroir they come from.
All coffees have their origins in micro and small plantations of the finest coffee regions, where the wonderful energy of the farmers translates into great tasting coffee.
KOPKOPI is the result of a meeting between a tech founder and an artist and the fruit of love around coffee. We like art and culture as much as we like coffee. We focus on promoting interesting people and places, as well as art and craft products.
We’re present at every stage of our work. Every detail is important to us, from the selection and cupping of the beans, the choice of packaging, the design of the labels, the roasting level, the photography and presentation of the product, to the way it’s packaged and how we contact you.
We put coffee in your hands – our designs that 100% reflect our love for coffee and culture. The KOPKOPI brand features specialty coffees roasted in the Tri-City area. Designing and working on products is our vocation and great passion. We have a lot of experience as a designer and tech & product founder.
We created the coffee brand not to be the best, but to learn about the connection between roasters and consumers. We created a channel around related topics to connect with our competitors and their audience through an independent magazine.
Today, we are a completely independent brand, and we want to run it responsibly – in the spirit of traceability, transparency, and direct trade – meaning direct, in-house imports.
Our goal is to remove barriers to information, feedback and accessibility by offering a background that goes deep into supply chains and technology in coffee. We have our own direct trade imports that go through all stages of traceability throughout the value chain.
Our mission is cooperation – we want to bring people together, help you promote fair transactions and raise the standard of coffee quality in the market.

If you’re looking for a flawless product, specialty coffees scoring 80 out of 100 or higher on the Q Grader (sommelier in the coffee world) scale are an ideal choice. Q-graders, on the other hand, must have the requisite knowledge and experience, proven by the SCA certification.
These coffees are characterized by an intense, pleasant, varied aroma. They taste clean, without unpleasant bitterness, delicate and even velvety. Specialty coffees don’t require any additives such as milk, sugar or sweeteners. They combine sweetness with a touch of fruity acidity. For these products we can speak of the highest quality segment in the world.
The beans are hand-picked and subjected to multiple inspections. Each stage of specialty coffee production takes place with attention to the smallest detail.
The term ‘specialty coffee’ was first used in 1974 by Erna Knutsen in the Tea & Coffee Trade Journal. Knutsen used the term “specialty coffee” to describe the highest quality coffees grown in specific microclimates that have unique aromas and flavors so different from those found in industrial coffees.
In those days, coffee was just coffee and nothing special was sought in it. It was treated as an everyday product. But it turned out that if coffee was grown in a good climate and handled with care, it could have a whole range of fantastic flavours and aromas – just like wine.
Since then, in the mid-1970s, coffee has “leapt” up the ladder, both in production and in consumer perception: it has gone from being an ordinary product (like a not-so-sophisticated table wine) to a luxury product, or at least a part of its worldwide production – specialty coffee.
