Hesselink Koffie is the only large family owned coffee roastery in the Netherlands. For over four generations we can address ourselves as a high quality coffee supplier. We also take pride in being a Royal Warrant Holder .
Since 1885 Hesselink Koffie has been in the coffee industry. Back in 1885 J.W. Hesselink had founded his shop in colonial trade products, such as coffee and tea. In 1922 both of his sons joined the business. Ever since that time to company has been names J.W. Hesselink & Zn. (Sons).
Back in 1930 Hesselink started to focus its product range to coffee and made its first sales in grinded and packaged coffee. After WO II smaller grocer’s had to make way for supermarkets. Hesselink Koffie adjusted the this evolution by targeting hospitality businesses as a new client group. This is how the business evolved and ultimately survived the rise of the supermarkets.
Today the fourth generation is at the head of Hesselink Koffie. 130 years after his grandfather founded his store, current CEO Gerrit Hesselink runs two offices in The Netherlands. The headquarters of Hesselink Koffie is based in Winterwijk and in 2008 an additional office was opened in Amsterdam: Hesselink Koffie West.
The headquarters located on the Rondweg Zuid in Winterswijk has its own remarkable Coffee Coaching Centre, which is initiated to provide clients and other relations with a more detailed information on the origins of the coffee. But above all, the Coffee Coaching Center is the perfect location to taste the coffee which Hesselink Koffie produces.
