Tradition meets modern lifestyle
Coffee is lifestyle, coffee is a quick "Latte to go", coffee is indulgence. And coffee is tradition. A contradiction? Not at all. Just like the work of the German Coffee Association: Traditional roots, but modern topics with a future orientated view.
The German Coffee Association
The German Coffee Association is one of the smaller associations in Germany by hosting about 150 members, but is of great importance. Coffee is one of the world´s most important merchandise and Germany the third biggest coffee market worldwide.
Among the members of the German Coffee Association are:

- Manufacturers of system engineering
- Producers of coffee machines and – dispensers
- Certificating organizations for sustainable coffee
The Association is represented by an executive committee and a directory board.
The office in Hamburg is led by the secretary general Holger Preibisch.
