Since five o’clock Philipp Reichel is this Morning on the legs, but the fatigue the 33-Year-old shows no. This may be due to his profession: in the Middle of the coffee 9, a Szenecafé in Berlin-Kreuzberg, operates the entrepreneurs own roastery. For several hours the heavy roasting drum, in which the white turns there under his supervision green coffee beans are dried and are heated. Up in the cherry cores contained sugar caramelizes and the beans are your typical brown colouring gives.

Reichel waiting for the so-called Crack, the Moment in which the bean breaks down and also the last share of the moisture out of your escapes. “Like Popcorn,” he says, and in fact, you can hear it Inside the machine after some time, softly cracking and popping.

On a screen Reichel checks the temperature, to be regulated, if necessary. “So we make sure that every roast tastes at the end of the same.” More than 800 flavors were potentially bean in each coffee, he says. What we taste depends on how it is grown, stored, and roasted is.

To Reichel is this Morning a brisk business: Young parents, business people, Hipsters sit at the high wooden tables in the coffee 9, read the newspaper or work on their Laptops. The Café has directed Reichel once. In the meantime, he got out and is using the premises for the operation of its roaster. Together with only one employee in the month up to 1.5 tons of roasted beans to numerous capital, customer, and organised alongside training courses and Workshops around coffee.

small business how to Reichel, which operate with few employees, especially the local demand for high-quality coffee – the so-called specialty coffee, mixing is currently mainly in Metropolitan areas of the market. “The Segment is growing,” says Holger Preibisch, managing Director of the German coffee Association in Hamburg. “We see the number of small roasters nationwide, now at around 650.” Their numbers have doubled since 2010.

No drink, not even beer or bottled water, drinking, the consumers in Germany as much as coffee: About 164 liters of each of them consumed in the past year, on average, has Preibischs Association recently. In the case of beer, there were 102 litres – including the increasingly popular alcohol-free varieties.

And still many people associate with good coffee as the black, boiling hot and bitter pick-me-up. The small roaster want to change that. Coffee is at least as complex as wine. You speak of vintages, growing regions, tastings and flavors. And though, with a market share of only five percent, only a niche, drive the Large front of it.

Jacobs advertises his “Barista-editions” and makes the terms of the local scene as his own. Small roasters like Reichel are watching this development with mixed feelings. “On the one hand, they are our biggest competitors,” he says. “On the other hand, create Dallmayr and co., in a couple of days more and more people with the issue to achieve as we are in a year.”

the Great stress not only quality, but also sustainability – a topic in which the small roasters often have pent-up demand. “The supply chains for coffee are extremely complex,” says Claudia Brück, managing Director of the Association Transfair, which awards the well-known Fairtrade label. “For small roasting companies, it is very difficult to keep this completely under control.” To minimize the risk, bought her well-known roaster specifically in Fairtrade Cooperatives.
