Founded: 1993
Headquarters: Bad Honnef, Germany
Style: Neo-Modern with New School variants
Characteristics: full scale engineering: assertive, loud, & overpowering bars of science
Ferment: moderate
Roast: dark
Conche: considerable
Impact: Cosmopolitan in character, international in flavor. Emerged from the shadows of Pralus (similar roasting preferences/shared estate at Nosy Bé, Madagascar). Ambitious, tenacious, & possessed. All sums up one word: exactitude. Time will tell how the company fares with the departure in 2010 of Georg Bernardini, director of sourcing & quality management.
