Chemical composition of Coffee
In the world of coffee the market share of “gourmet” coffees is winning importance every day.
For Rucquoy Frères - green coffee trader, established in 1919, these specialty and quality coffees are no small talk but everyday reality. 25 Years ago we decided to focus completely on quality, sustainability and certifications for specialty coffees as well as for mainstream qualities.
To reach this goal we work directly with certified and non-certified coffee producers (85-90% of our volume). At the same time we noticed that small and medium sized green coffee producers delivered us a better quality coffee at a competitive price.
Since its foundation Rucquoy Frères tries to establish a strong and confidential contact with his clients. This is a still ongoing good relation- and working partnership. To satisfy all the participants in the coffee chain we set out 5 objectives to be met: quality, food safety, traceability, ecology and sustainability through inter alia certified green coffees.
We are focussed on quality, whether or not certified, green coffees from over the world but specialised in Centrals and South American coffee, Africans, Asian arabica’s and washed robusta’s.
As we work back to back we are always prepared to find you the suited quality.
