About Almalomb coffee
Almalomb is a 18th century water mill. It is my heritage. It is my family’s place. A story told and remembered. Past, present and future. The old mill is no longer functional, it is turned into Almalomb Culinary Retreat & Meetingplace, housing a restaurant, an event place and an apartment house opened to the public in 2015. In 2021 we embarked on a new journey: Almalomb Coffee was born. Stemming from the same passion for authenticity, honest simplicity and outstanding quality Almalomb stands for, we created our coffee business. We opened our coffee processing facility in Pécs, Hungary in 2021 with the vision to bring the perfect coffee experience to as many homes as possible, in a simple and environmentally friendly way.
Our small team comprises of extraordinary characters, who bring a great variety of backgrounds to the party, sharing the passion for exploring unbeaten paths and making the impossible attainable.

We treat sustainability in a holistic manner; our aim is to create and distribute value starting from responsible sourcing, through packaging design, to materials used in the production process. We carefully evaluate each step to minimize environmental impact, consider social and economic impact, while offering outstanding quality, simplicity and ease of use. Our process is transparent and can be traced through the value chain.
Our beans and grinded coffees are packed to industrial compostable bags with ecological ink. These packages must be treated same as milk or juice cartons when you select your waste. Our capsules are packed in fully home compostable materials from the capsules through the box till the ink and glue. Our bio-mass based capsules decompose in 26 weeks in a home environment. If you select bio waste separately you can home composte it like any vegetable-based bio waste. If you live in an apartment or have no composting possibility, you can treat it as landfill waste, and it will decompose at the waste treatment facility. Our packaging design aims to eliminate hazardous or non-compostable components and minimize the usage of unnecessary materials and colors, enhancing the beauty of functional simplicity.
We try to find coffee farmers and buy from them directly. When it is not possible, we look for farms who are certified as organic, or follow Fair Trade or Rainforest Alliance principles. We particularly appreciate to work with organizations, like the Indonesian Orangutan project who are involved in local community and nature preservation initiatives. We believe that all participants in the chain shall benefit from the value created, hence our products and processes are honest and transparent. We intend to share the story of the bean and connect the farm with the cup.
