Sustainable coffee growing – fair partnerships

For Deutsche Extrakt Kaffee (DEK), it is important that all bean buying and trading processes run properly and fairly. That is why we are involved in organisations that are committed to fair trade coffee and sustainability. Many of our products have seals to show for it.

Fair trade coffee for good working conditions

Fair trade with coffee ensures that small growers can earn a living from growing coffee even when prices are fluctuating on the global market. Growers come together in cooperatives which offer them clear benefits.

Sustainable growing

Sustainably grown coffee is grown on plantations in mixed cultivations that ensure a pleasant climate and better soil. This type of cultivation saves water and increases the yield from harvests. The coffee is picked by hand, which guarantees that only ripe coffee berries are selected and processed.

Responsible handling of the resources and the living conditions of producers in the growing countries are an important foundation for the future.


The coffee is roasted, ground and extracted under constant supervision.
