In the beginning there was fire ...
While the Greek King George lit the Olympic flame for the first time in Athens in 1896, his namesake George Henauer fired his roasting machine for the first time in Winterthur - the cornerstone for a success story and our family business was laid. The company "Henauer Kaffee & Tee" soon moved from Winterthur to Zurich, in the middle of Niederdorf. From here, a network of relationships around the globe was established in the years to come. Good relationships based on partnership with dealers and producers have always made the difference for us. We know how our coffee plants are grown, who harvest them when and how they are processed further. The collaboration often lasts so long that we, the 4th Henauer generation, talk to the 3rd or 4th generation of a coffee farmer dynasty. It is not uncommon for us to find out about small cultivation areas with special and rare varieties - the basis for our P14 specialty coffee.
From bean to coffee
Together with the steadily increasing range, we have also grown as a company. Therefore, in 1986, due to lack of space, the company moved from Zurich Niederdorf to Höri. Even today we still have enough space for our roasting machines and refining processes. Here we create our roasts and blends with a lot of love. Because as our company founder said: "From the bean in the field to enjoyment in the cup - we live coffee culture."
