Planning for the opening of the roastery in the heart of Speicherstadt (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) in Hamburg began in 2003, when the free port boundary was moved to the southern port area and the retail agreement was revoked.
After extensive negotiations with the monument protection authorities and the Environmental Protection Agency, the roasting plant was finally able to move into its own building. The Speicherstadt roastery is located in the heart of the historic Speicherstadt warehouse district in Hamburg, Germany, in one of the old red brick buildings.
Founded in 2006 by Thimo Drews and Andreas Wessel-Ellermann, the roastery is housed in a former warehouse dating back to 1888. The 2 managing directors come from families that have been in the coffee business for two generations.
In addition to the exquisite blends from Speicherstadt, we also offer matching tableware.
