The Specialtycoffee website provides all the information you need for preparing specialty coffee. The featured products can be purchased online!
For more than twenty years Espresso Service West (ESW) has been ahead of the game in developing coffee products, both as an importer and a distributor of coffee and espresso machines, whilst providing reliable technical support. The company initiated the introduction of the most advanced brewing techniques in the field of espresso and slow coffee.
The rise of specialty coffee in particular has given an enormous boost to the demand for state-of-the-art brewing systems and techniques. This boost translated itself into an equally great demand for relevant information on the part of our customers, and formed the primary reason for ESW to launch this new website.
The site creates a platform that strives to go beyond the ‘mere’ selling of appliances and specialty coffee, by also providing all the necessary information that will enable you to enjoy our top coffees.
In the online shop you’ll find espresso machines and coffee grinders, next to the more recently developed devices for brewing slow coffee, such as AeroPress®, Chemex, Hikari Siphon bar, and Hario. In addition to this, the webshop offers quality coffees and a variety of barista tools.
SpecialtyCoffee is powered by ESW The Hague. ESW is distributor and supplier of La Marzocco, Wega, Vibiemme, Jura, Mahlkönig, Mazzer, Anfim, Macap, Chemex, Hario, Puqpress, Giesen Coffee Roasters, Bunn, Bonmac Hikari Siphon Bar, Marco (Überboiler & Boilers), Cafelat Barista Tools en koffies van Boot -The Golden Coffee Box, Bocca, Barbera, Illy en Lavazza.
