At cumpa, we work every day to provide our customers with the finest green coffees from Peru and Vietnam. We do not want to supply just any coffees, but specialty coffees of excellent quality, grown in harmony with man and nature. To achieve this, we rely on long-term partnerships and a trusting cooperation with our partners at the origin.
Our shared passion for coffee is based on Lukas’ trip to Peru in 2013. After completing his education, he spent about a year in Peru and fell in love with the country, the people and the coffee. Back in Germany, he studied “International Management” in Karlsruhe. There he crossed paths with engineering student Daniel. The shared culinary interest and the common circle of friends quickly moved the two to more.
Between 2015 and 2016, Lukas worked for Torsten from Good Karma Coffee in Karlsruhe, which led to a long-lasting friendship. Together with other friends, Daniel and Lukas founded the registered non-profit association Qoffee Qulture in 2017. With the association, we collect donations for projects with which we improve the lives of coffee farmers on a voluntary basis.
At the beginning of 2018, the two then took their first trip together to Peru. After that, it was clear that we wanted to take it one step further. In August 2018, cumpa GmbH was finally founded. Since then, we have been able to inspire more and more customers for our Peruvian coffees.
Together with Vietnamese partners, we have been expanding cumpa since 2019. This relationship was already established in 2017 during Daniel’s trip through Vietnam. In 2021, we were also able to grow further in terms of personnel and welcomed Julia at the end of 2021, who has been supporting us in marketing ever since. At the beginning of 2022, Paul joined us and has been looking after our Origin Vietnam ever since.
We are happy about our development so far, all the friendships, the adventures together and look confidently into a future with lots of good coffee.
