About us.

Welcome to Gust Coffee Roasters, we're a Belgian third wave specialty coffee roastery in the south of Brussels.
Obsessed about the finest specialty coffees from around the world, our mission is simple yet profound: to bring you the freshest, ethically sourced, and undeniably delicious coffee.

Our obsession for this little red fruit, we want to share it with you!

Our Philosophy.

Gust Coffee Roasters was born out of the desire to do things a bit differently from what coffee represents today.

At Gust, we believe specialty coffee is the best of what coffee can and should be. It's a combination of quality, sustainability and people, and how these all work together for a better future in coffee.

Our Sourcing.

For us, ethical coffee isn't just a label, it's the heart of what we do. Searching for the most outstanding single-origins is one thing, but we believe it shouldn't be at any price. We meticulously source our beans, ensuring fair wages for farmers and sustainable farming practices, we prioritize transparency traceability, and a positive impact on the communities that make our coffee possible.

‘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 a bit 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.
At Gust we define a price based on the quality and taste of a coffee, and independent from the stock market prices, securing a fair price for everyone in the value chain.
Join us in sipping a cup of conscience, because great coffee should feel good, from bean to brew.

Our Roasting.

While sourcing only fresh crop, we hand-roast our coffees slowly and in small batch, to respect and enhance the natural flavors of each coffee origin, bringing you excellence in every coffee you'll taste from us.

Our roast profiles, light to medium roasted, are tailor-made for each lot of coffee to fully enjoy and discover the natural flavours and subtle aroma's.
Once roasted, your coffee is packed and shipped directly from our roastery.

The result is a delicious and balanced coffee with lots of sweetness and body. Each coffee has its own unique characteristics and taste, representing its terroir and knowhow.
