Benecke Coffee offers high-quality support throughout the entire retail chain of raw coffee imports, from the country of origin to its destination. With our own sample room with quality control, as well as our warehouse and inventory management, we can precisely meet individual customer requirements. Through strong guiding principles and the numerous years of experience of our management we guarantee our customers cost-effective and reliable services.
We work with an array of reliable shipping companies in Europe who offer scheduled services from ports of origin into Northern Europe. Upon arrival into the ports of Hamburg and Bremen we have long established cooperation with warehouses that ensure proper handling of green coffee, providing special services for blending, cleaning, and bagging coffee, as well as subsequent preparation of goods for transport to their final destination.
Benecke Coffee works discreetly and efficiently in volatile international markets, which can often pose a challenge to retailers. Our network of correspondents and exporters enables us to be present in producer and consumer markets. We support our customers and suppliers with information on market trends and relevant developments provided by the world’s best international news and information agencies.
Our experience as brokers and constant presence in the marketplace provides our customers advantages in terms of quality, price, and conditions. Our company ensures that shipments are closely monitored, regarding quality standards and packaging, with the help of sampling and testing, as well as constant cooperation with our suppliers. Benecke Coffee knows the fundamentals and trading practices, as well as the full range of possible customer requirements.
Delivery, insurance, and contract documents in the international coffee trade require special proficiencies. Our trade experts and specialists in our expedition and finance department help to guarantee fast, precise, and smooth processing of international contracts. This often means considerable savings for our customers.
Financing is extended to customers through our German banks in consumer countries specifically for businesses with delivery terms.
On the retail side, Benecke Coffee offers a variety of different forms of pricing, especially for fixed prices (per 50 kg or cts/lbs) or at agio or disagio (differential) over a limited month on the New York (ICE) or London Coffee Exchange (Liffe). For this differential trade, we offer price fixing as a buyer or seller option on our accounts at one’s own discretion.
