About us

Douqué was founded in 1895 and the fourth generation is now active in the family company, which has a long history whereby Douqué has specialised in the import and export of green coffee. This history contributes to an unparalleled knowledge of the product, where the art of looking, smelling, feeling, but above all tasting, plays a central role.

Friendly relationships with producers and customers over decades are the rule rather than the exception. These relationships rely upon the good business sense and the excellent service of The Douqué Group: a rock-solid foundation in which a sincere and transparent way of doing business is the key. The passion for coffee and social responsibility forms the basis of the current success, and also an investment for the future.

The Douqué Group consists of various companies each with their own in-depth specialism in the coffee trade. Each company has a unique story.

“In contrast to the well-known barter traders, we only invest in long-term relationships.”
