    KeenCoffee is a collaboration of baristas Bonne Postma & Rob Kerkhoff, and Roasters Jan Schuitemaker & Tosca Schuitemaker.

    Our coffee is the product of years of practice, mistakes, learning, and growth. All in search of that perfect cup of coffee. They provide you with top-notch beans and the skills that you need to turn those beans into a superior cup of coffee.

    The Keen roastery is located in Enkhuizen, a small harbour town just North of Amsterdam. All of our coffees are roasted to order with a Loring roaster due to its precision, and environmentally friendly efficiency.

    We are all SCAE certified and have a training area on site where we offer several different types of SCAE trainings and provide customized training for our wholesalers.

    We also host Keen Campus training events where we teach everything from basic milk foaming to advanced techniques. At Keen Campus our wholesalers, their employees, and other coffee enthusiasts can connect with each other and improve their coffee skills.

    Our goal to help share knowledge about coffee doesn’t stop at the professional level, we also create brewing and storage guides for home brewer, and are currently working on free tutorials that we’ll share on our website.

    Discovering new ways to experience coffee is what excites us; what keeps us inspired is sharing these discoveries.

    An interactive seminar and workshop exploring Geisha coffee from planting to cup

    London - Coffee lore, myth and reality will collide Saturday, November 7th when Panama Varietals, a grower, processor, and merchant of world class Panama coffees, and Artisan Coffee School and Caravan Coffee Roasters of London, host a two hour invite only workshop for roasters, baristas, and green coffee buyers to explore these unique coffees.

    The workshop will follow the journey of Panama Geisha from planting, to cultivation, to processing and the care needed in each step to obtain world class coffee and achieve perfection in the cup. Attendees will also be cupping a very special Geisha processed in three methods, washed, honey and natural, and prepare and compare the coffee to determine the best brew method.

    “As one of the most expensive varieties, it is important for those who buy, roast and serve the coffee to understand the differences in cultivating and processing world class Geisha. This story, backed by an amazing cup, needs to be transferred to the consumer to support and give depth to the hype,” says Uschi Zimmermann, co-founder of Panama Varietals.

    The event is hosted by Artisan Coffee School, led by Alessandro Bonuzzi, a certified SCAE trainer, and Caravan Coffee Roasters, a specialty coffee roaster in Kings Cross, headed by master roaster and Q certified coffee grader Sam Langdon who is one of the few roasters in the UK to feature Geisha. Caravan will do the honor of roasting the coffees featured in the workshop.

    Workshop Location & Times
    Artisan Coffee School, 32 New Broadway, Ealing, London
    Saturday, November 7th - 6:00pm - 8:00pm

    About Artisan Coffee School
    Artisan Coffee School believes in getting to the heart of understanding coffee. Excellent training is not simply process driven but also instinctively understanding why each action/step taken in creating each cup of coffee has an impact on its flavour.
    The Artisan Coffee School was set up by Edwin and Magda Harrison with the aim of sharing their passion for coffee with other likeminded people, from baristas, owners to coffee enthusiasts. Having experienced the meticulous process of coffee cultivation in Uganda, they have successfully trained their teams to ensure that the flavours brought from origin are represented in every single cup.
    Based in Ealing Broadway within Artisan – one of the multi award winning coffee shops that Edwin and Magda have set up in west and south west London, the school is an accredited SCAE (Speciality Coffee Association of Europe) course provider. Their experience of running their own shops before opening the school has meant that they understand the challenges that face owners, managers and baristas and their specially devised training courses reflect this deeper understanding.

    The origins of Vibiemme are intimately connected to Faema. Both brands are the result of the brilliant intuitions of Carlo Ernesto Valente, a man universally recognized as the "father" of the contemporary espresso coffee machines. 1975, the year of the bankruptcy proceedings signature, officially marked the end of the Faema / Valente experience and the establishment of a new company, Vibiemme, on January 12, 1976.

    Today VBM has gone from strength to strength this is purely down to their reliability, robustness and commitment in manufacturing top quality espresso machines.

    To date VBM have released the following models for the domestic/ semi-professional market:

    • Domobar HX (standard model)
    • Domobar Junior HX (heat exchanger)
    • Domobar Junior 2B (2 boiler)
    • Domobar Super HX
    • Domobar Super 2B

    All of the above models were the first to bring thermic stability and temperature electronic control to the E61 group head and to its thermosiphonic circulation and mechanical pre-infusion principal.

    On the commercial side you have:

    • Lollo 1, 2, and 3 Groups automatic version – only HX
    • Replica 2 and 3 Groups both semi and automatic version – HX and 2B

    As an appointed UK agent for VBM we are always looking to work with Traders, distributors and resellers who can value VBM’s vision.

    We have come up with a unique rental programme that enables customers to take any of our Vibiemme machines on a weekly rental basis this will give better value and better service.
    The programme includes:

    • full service
    • full breakdown cover (P/L)
