Starting with a lot of café know-how, we have been roasting fresh coffee beans every week since 2018 for you, other customers and ourselves, so that espressos and filter coffees taste better. Read more here.
With our coffee roastery, we make the countless varieties of the coffee plant tangible for you. All have their own characteristics that vary depending on the growing region and microclimate. It's a bit like grape vines: each variety brings its own natural aromas that significantly influence the taste and character of your coffee.
We bring out this variety of flavors through our precise roasting. We consciously avoid the majority of the very dominant, classic roasting aromas that only arise after very long or hot roasting. The result is coffees that taste very different and therefore always surprise. We invite you to try them!
We're glad you found us and want to know more about us. It's a pleasure! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us any time.
Aurore, Mats, Philip and Nico from Günter Coffee Roasters
That's how it all started
In 2014, Aurore and Philip opened Café Marcel in Freiburg's Stadtgarten, and Mats joined a short time later. They want to bring delicious espresso with fine-pored foamed milk to Freiburg. The two start in the small café with the most important equipment: a high-quality grinder and a portafilter machine . A short time later, they also become enthusiastic about the sweet and fruity notes of lighter-roasted, single-origin coffees . A second coffee grinder is needed to adequately share this enthusiasm with the guests .
At that time, the coffee beans came from various small and medium-sized roasters in Germany and Europe. The enthusiasm for coffee quickly turns into a passion. So the three of them founded Günter Coffee Roasters in spring 2018.
Aurore is the German Champ
Aurore competed in the German Cup Tasting Championships in Bremen in 2023 and confidently won the competition. She defended her title at the 2024 championships in Frankfurt in September '23.
Two of our coffees win a first and third place in the Coffee Panel in 2021. The popular beans are since sold out.
Online Shop Opened
Nicolas Kittel joins the team and takes care of everything online. Since December 2019 we have been selling our coffee beans throughout Germany via our online shop.
Aurore, Mats and Philip join forces to roast their own coffees. The Günter Coffee Roasters are born.
What Our Customers Say
Wonderfully fruity coffee from Ethiopia with a distinct peach aroma that I really like. (Translated from German)
You have to fiddle around a bit, but if the right recipe produces the right drink, balanced, fruity and sweet with a hint of caramel and enough depth, it's definitely worth it. My tip: brew for 28 or even 30 seconds with 1 part in to 2 parts out. (Translated from German)
I didn't know that decaffeinated coffee could be so delicious. (Translated from German)
Perfect from Cappuccino to Ristretto dopo pasto. With the subscription, you are always on the safe side and can enjoy your coffee at the ideal time after roasting. (Translated from German)
Very good quality every time! You can't imagine life without it! (Translated from German)
Our favorite coffee (Translated from German)
Everything unsurpassed! (Translated from German)
We've had a subscription to Bom Dia beans for a few months now and are still totally happy! They always come super fresh from the roastery and are delivered on time. We love the rather mild aroma and make cappuccino almost exclusively from the beans. (Translated from German)
If we've had another miserable night due to the kids being awake, the Marcello strong is simply the best antidote! I ordered it myself for Christmas this year! I also think it goes really well with oat cappuccino! (Translated from German)
One of my two favorite coffees. The taste in the cappuccino is totally convincing, I was able to discover this in the café in Günterstal. I always like to buy it when I'm in Freiburg 👍 (Translated from German)
I bought beans from Rawand, Peru and Colombia for filter coffee and all three are wonderful. The service is excellent too.
Bought it today at lunchtime in Cafe Marcel and tried it in the afternoon in the small Lelit Anita. I'm no expert, but you can taste the red grape very well, very nice and sweet and the toffee in the finish. Definitely delicious! (Translated from German)
Dear Roasters in Günterstal, the Brazilian Bean fits perfectly into my brewing profile and I'm really happy with it. However, this rating is still from last time, I haven't opened the new one yet, it arrived so freshly roasted that I had to leave it lying around. Greetings from Stuttgart, MARTIN (Translated from German)
The parcel arrived after 2 days. After a long back and forth, I finally found what I was looking for. The coffee is perfect for my fully automatic machine! Always happy to return :) (Translated from German)
Quality and Growing Conditions
We source our green coffees from selected retailers who are dedicated to specialty coffee. It is important to us that our partners not only keep an eye on the special quality of the coffee beans but also the entire supply chain. This means that we get detailed information about how the coffee is grown and the coffee farmers can build long-term relationships. We also source some of our coffees directly from the farms in order to achieve the greatest possible transparency about the growing conditions. You can find out more in our article on coffee trade.
We roast all coffees on our 15 kg drum roaster from Giesen. In order to continually develop, we record every roasting process and taste the freshly roasted coffees in our weekly quality control, the cupping. This means that every roast always tastes exactly how it should taste.
