OUR OBSESSION. YOUR COFFEE.
Unique specialty coffee, freshly hand-roasted in small batches and ethically sourced.
Welcome to Gust Coffee Roasters, we're a Belgian third wave specialty coffee roastery in the south of Brussels.
When a few years ago, Tanguy Herssens, discovered what specialty coffee could actually bring in terms of taste complexity and the multitude of amazing different flavour notes a coffee origin can contain, it literally started haunting him. He decided to quid everything and start sourcing and roasting his very own special(ty) coffees.
The obsession he got for this little red fruit, he wants to share it with you!
Searching for the most outstanding single-origins is one thing, but we believe it shouldn't be at any price. Besides the quality, we want to find coffees from ethical and sustainable origins and with a minimum of intermediaries across the coffee supply chain.
fresh. ethical. delicious.
‘Gust’ literally means ‘a sudden strong rush of wind’, and that's what we also aim for with our coffees. We hope to make a small wind of change in today's unfair coffee industry and make specialty coffee more accessible to everyone.
More than 95% of the coffee sold in the world is traded on the commodity market and prices paid to the coffee farmers are just ridiculously low. The majority of the farmers do not make any profit with coffee and most of the times they barely have enough to feed their family and give their workers decent living conditions.
As it almost takes a year to harvest coffee cherries and if everything goes well, the right weather conditions, the right picking and processing of the beans, the coffee farmer sells his green coffee beans for a price defined on the stock market, independently of the quality.
With this lighter roast we discover the natural flavours and subtle aroma's of each coffee origin, and we adapt the roasting profile to get the best out of it.
The result is a delicious and balanced coffee with sweetness, body and smooth acidity! Hence you will discover for every single-origin unique characteristics of the terroir and amazing tasting notes.
Thank you for drinking Gust coffee, thank you for making a difference.
