Our approach to coffee is based on a strong technical and intuitive understanding – procured through many years working in busy cafés, markets and festivals.
These years spent working as baristas taught us the need for quality and consistency in the coffee roasting process.
It is important for us to always provide you with a unique unmistakably “passenger” coffee experience.
passenger started in 2004 as a mobile espresso service, which was set up by two friends Jan and Garth.
Over the years, passenger has established itself with its coffee and international team at festivals and events in and around Berlin.
In 2008 passenger’s mobile business was transformed into a coffee stand on wheels with the Piaggio Ape P501. Even today, come rain, hail or shine passenger can still be found with the Ape on Saturdays at Boxhagener Platz in Berlin-Friedrichshain.
In 2010, passenger opened its first shop in the colorful Wrangelkiez district of Kreuzberg, which quickly established itself as an insider tip among espresso
In 2017, passenger espresso moved to the more spacious neighbouring shop at Oppelner Straße 44 and began to reanimate the Berlin coffee house culture with a colorful sporadic cultural program, drinks and of course passenger coffee.
Our increasing interest in roasting processes and quality assurance finally led to the foundation of the coffee roasting company passenger coffee, based in Alt-Treptow. Since 2015, passenger coffee alongside serving quality coffee to the community, is the production centre of our house blend, passenger blend, as well as a growing number of other passenger products.
We roast on a Loring Smart Roaster™. This hot air system exceeds the functionality of a conventional drum roaster, using its “flavour-lock roast process technology” the loring creates a low oxygen high humidity atmosphere which helps to preserve the flavour in each bean.
Furthermore this design radically reduces emissions and saves up to 80% on your energy footprint. The result is a clean even roast with a round body, from which diverse aromas can be extracted.
