Coffee bean importer
in pursuit of great coffee

As a coffee bean importer, we have embarked on a journey to discover, develop, and deliver great traceable coffees. And we welcome you to join us. We work together with coffee farmers, cooperatives, and exporters to provide roasters with traceable green specialty coffees.

How it all started

Captivated by the new coffee flavors he experienced in Ethiopia, Menno Simons founded Trabocca: a coffee bean importer with a strong focus on Ethiopian specialty coffee.

With an eye for potential, it wasn’t long before he brought the first certified Organic Ethiopian coffee to the market in 2004. Menno began to deepen out his knowledge of Ethiopia and started to explore other coffee origins.

Who we are today

For nearly two decades, Menno gathered more coffee professionals to accompany him in the pursuit of excellent green specialty coffee. Today we are a team of 27 coffee-driven people spread out over three offices: Addis Ababa, Amsterdam, and Minneapolis.

Instead of focusing on Ethiopia solely, our knowledge, expertise, and supply chains are deeply ingrained in other origins. Like Kenya, Colombia, Peru, Brazil, and Sumatra. And through a network of trusted suppliers, we can deliver the coffees that make all the difference: in quality, taste, and transparency.

What we can do for you as a coffee bean importer

Our purpose as a coffee bean importer is simple and clear: delivering great, certified, and traceable, green coffees to your doorstep. Our end-to-end control of supply chains from tree to cup enables you to tap into long-term and direct relationships with the growers of our coffee.

If you are looking for a specific coffee profile, certified coffee, or supply chain, please reach out to us. We are here to make your pursuit of great coffee a success, every season.
