Sustainable coffee breaks

For some, the coffee breaks are the most important part of an venue. It is important to us that our guests recharge their batteries in a healthy and balanced way with lots of organic ingredients and really enjoy networking during the breaks.

    Organic certified ingredients

    Organic food is not only good for the environment but also healthy. They contain more secondary plant substances, more flavours, and less water. To match the organic drinks, our coffee breaks are made from organic quality ingredients.
