Star chef, TV star and ambassador
"Real appreciation begins with a good cup of coffee", our pleasant taste ambassador Roland Trettl believes. The top international chef does not, however, believe in buying coffee capsules. What Trettl appreciates the most about Kaffee Partner is the strong passion for taste, design and quality. That makes us quite proud. For about 50 years we have maintained these values, and enrich our customer's lives every day with fresh coffee, great design and the best level of service.
We do not know whether or not all 600 of our employees came to work for us just because we clearly have the best workplace coffee. We are also very attractive to applicants as a multiple award-winning employer. But what we can say with certainty: Our employees in the field, in technical services, on the hotline and in administration are happy with themselves and with their jobs, just like our customers. You can trust us.

To invite people to use a coffee machine in a public room or in a company, a large selection of speciality coffees should be made available, which naturally also invites employees or managers of the company to likewise enjoy a cup of coffee. More than four decades ago, Kaffee Partner recognised people's changing passions for coffee and started leasing the first coffee machines to the commercial sector. Right up to today, new and ingenious coffee systems are being created all the time, meeting every need and supplying both the small offices and the huge coffee needs of public spaces.
You can expect a first-class, fresh taste from every cup of coffee poured by a Kaffee Partner machine, as the beans are ground first and then the other ingredients are added. Our experience and the continuous development of our products have ensured that machine coffee is now perceived as a quality product, and furthermore, that it awakes a passion for coffee in you.
