Meet Our Roasters - Keen Coffee

Updated: Mar 3

Keen Coffee is a remarkable roaster based out of Utrecht, Netherlands who is always on the search for the best coffees with the most unique flavours. They work directly with farmers, sampling their coffees through cuppings, selecting new crops, and supporting innovative projects to improve the quality of their coffees. Driven by innovation and obsessed with optimizing, their coffees are something to NOT miss out on!

For a small team, buying coffee directly from the farmers is an ambitious goal. Proudly, Keen has built three direct trade relationships in only four years! They choose to obtain green beans through direct trade as it's a way to ensure that farmers are treated fairly, and to make the coffee industry more equal. Ethics are not the only reason Keen Coffee support direct trade. They believe that fostering strong relationships between farmer, buyer, and seller as they believe it helps take their coffees to the next level!

Keen has joined the Future Proof Coffee Collective which helps fund and support an initiative in Peru that helps build drying beds for farmers. This project is a long term commitment to improve the quality of life for farmers, and the quality of their coffees. In this collective, coffee producers, exporters, importers, roasters and retailers all work together to get the true costs for sustainable coffee production out in the open.

Keen Coffee has a fantastic lineup of coffees for anyone to experience. I've had the opportunity to try three different roasts, and they were all incredible. If I had to recommend one roast it would easily be their Ethiopian Dimtu. This single origin, light roast coffee hits you with funky kombucha, lavender and strawberry notes. Dimtu is a very well balanced coffee, leaving you wanting more and more after every sip! I'd also recommend trying their Ayele Tulu (Ethopian) and Danilo Salazar (Costa Rican) coffees. Don't hesitate to try these coffees, they will only be around for another couple of months!

Keen Coffee has partnered with My Coffee Marketplace to provide an exclusive offer to anyone who wants to try their incredible coffee. Just head over to Keen Coffee's website and put the promotional code 'MCMPKEEN23' in at checkout and you will receive 15% off your coffee orders!

Stay Caffeinated,
