Hello! I want to start ordering from European Coffee Roasters and i would like your advice about which roasters do you suggest from Europe. I prefer Europe because otherwise i'd have to pay custom taxes and it will be way more expensive. I have already wrote down The Barn , Nomad , La Cabra , Drop , Five Elephant , Coffee Collective , Tim Wendelboe , Friedhats , Manhattan , Gardelli.

Thanks in advance.

Out of the ones already listed Manhattan and La Cabra have been consistently good so far. Here's a few that were not listed, that might be interesting, and a couple that are local-ish to me. All more towards the light roast preference, so for medium to dark you may need to look elsewhere.


Out of these Nero Scuro is my go-to for simple but good light roasted coffee for filter use. Bugan is quite famous here in Italy, and Garage won the 2020 Italian roast championship.


Calendar coffee was a nice surprise, but only based on 1 bag so far.

Sumo still to be tasted but I know people who swear the roasts are supreme.


The owner / roaster at Frukt used to work for Coffee Collective (IIRC) but then started his own shop. I've only tasted a couple of bags from them but they were veery good indeed. Will order more now that I'm going to Finland.

One Day Coffee I haven't really tasted yet, but they have Koji processed coffee (at the moment looks like in green only) which I tasted at WOC Milan and it was super.

As Norway is not in the EU, I wouldn't order from Tim Wendelboe if you don't want to be taxed and/or stuck in customs.

Out of my local Swedish roasters, my current favorite is Gringo Nordic. Lots and lots of new coffees available pretty much all the time.
Too much is not enough

Roastery in Antwerp where I buy my coffees. Very consistent and balanced coffees.
