Influenced by his life in Japan and the UK, Ralf founded THE BARN in 2010. Being employee no. 1 he worked in every position in the company.

Ralf feels very strongly about being a Specialist. He pioneered high-quality coffee in an uncompromising way in Germany. By focusing on the product and sharing knowledge he quickly established THE BARN´s strong street credibility.

"I love building a community around specialty coffee and to showcase each farm we work within a puristic way. In a hectic world, we should all slow down from time to time and enjoy a great cup of coffee."
