Ask the Roaster - Jens from Mok Speciality Coffee
How was the Roastery founded, what was the inspiration?
Jens Crabbé started the company when he had just turned 22, the idea of creating his own product and making it as good as possible was something than really fed his ambition and character as a person.
What's your favourite part about working at the Roastery?
When new coffees arrive, the process of opening the bags and looking into the profile of the coffee, then adapting those profiles to create our signature flavour profile, transparent, juicy and clean.
What's your proudest accomplishment?
Jens is two times Belgian cup tasters champion but did not manage to win the world championship, that is definitely a goal.
What three words best describe your Roastery?
Uncompromising - Quality - Integrity
What’s your favourite place to enjoy a coffee, and what coffee would that be?
In origin, with one of our partners/producers. Trying to give them an experience they have never had or showcasing them a coffee from a different origin they have not tried yet.
Finally, what Dog & Hat combination would you choose?
As long as it’s a Dachshund, I’m happy.
