van Gülpen


A long company history alone is no guarantee for good coffee. But a little experience can’t do any harm either. And our experience goes back to the year 1832.

After a number of years as an importer of green coffee beans, Alexius van Gülpen, the son of our founder, had the revolutionary idea of selling the coffee roasted. This made Lensing & van Gülpen one of the world's first coffee roasters.

Meanwhile, the sixth generation of the family is operating our roasting machines and for the last three generations, we have dedicated ourselves exclusively to high-end specialty coffee, painstaking in our selection and passionate in our artisan roasting techniques.

One of our greatest strengths is and has always been, the ability to reinvent ourselves and to combine the accumulated knowledge and experience with the hunger for renewal and the spirit of innovation of younger generations.
