Whether you lean towards a sweet coffee blend, a bright, lightly roasted single origin coffee, or a funky, experimental cup, we have your favourite, no matter your coffee mood!
brander is a minimalist specialty coffee roastery founded by Lowie and Veerle in 2017. It started off as a café-cum-roastery but has become a purely roasting business as of 2023. The whole team focusses solely on sourcing and roasting outstanding coffees.
We source the finest coffees
We source handpicked coffee beans of specialty grading, preferably from micro-farms that care as much as we do about great coffee. We choose our beans for quality, cleanliness, sustainability and traceability. We only buy fresh, seasonal crops.
We work with selected partners who are engaged with the coffee community and stay close to producers, guiding them towards improving their farm and processing practices to produce higher quality coffee.
We roast to highlight the coffee’s finest qualities.
Our well-sourced coffees often surprise and delight with the sheer variety of their unique flavour profiles. We lightly roast the beans with the aim to highlight all the flavours that make the coffee distinct. Our profiles are constantly calibrated, considering the organically changing nature of green coffee. To ensure quality and freshness, we roast to order in small batches and ship directly from our roastery. We choose to open and unravel the roasting process for everyone by opening the roastery a few days a month. Feel free to pop in, say hello and taste some coffee!
We are very passionate about coffee, and we aspire to share this passion. It is the very joy of learning and gathering knowledge that drives us every day. We often gather around the cupping table, to optimize our approach. That is where we make buying and roasting decisions and where we calibrate our profiles, always with utmost quality in mind. We know our beans by heart. We value clean and bright cups, never cutting corners. Our coffee speaks for itself.
Making an effort for the planet is important to us. In recent years, sustainability has become a tremendously popular word, leading to its misusage. For us, it is a core value, and we try to uphold it in every business decision we make.
We sure are not perfect but we try and care, taking many tiny steps to reduce our footprint.
