PASSIONATE ABOUT COFFEE AND PEOPLE.
OUR BUSINESS HAS ALWAYS DEPENDED ON OUR EMPLOYEES AND RELATIONSHIPS. SINCE 1922.
As a company of Neumann Kaffee Gruppe, now managed by the third generation of the Neumann family, a family atmosphere is very important to us. An experienced, dynamic and international team has grown up in this environment over many decades and generations.
Each of our 43 employees makes a valuable contribution by advising and supporting our customers along the entire supply chain – with a mixture of superior coffee know how, many years of experience, a necessary spirit of innovation and more than 10 spoken languages.
The Management. EXPERIENCED COFFEE EXPERTS.
Both Jens Janecki and Jan Lühmann have been very familiar with the world of coffee for several decades.
Their management ideally combines the know-how of the coffee industry and trade.
“Whether aeropress, espresso, filter coffee or oat milk cappuccino – I am curious and rediscover coffee every day.”
“I prefer my coffee black. It enables me to keep discovering
new flavors even after all these years.”
Jan Lühmann has been working in the coffee business for more than 35 years – and has been part of the management team of Bernhard Rothfos since September 2020. After apprenticing with Tchibo in Hamburg, he spent many years in commercial and managerial positions in Papua New Guinea, Kenya, Uganda and Switzerland. Most recently, he has been Chief Procurement Officer at JDE/DEMB 1753 in Amsterdam for almost 8 years, where he has been responsible for the sourcing and supply of all factories world-wide, before he joined Bernhard Rothfos as Managing Director.
Jens Janecki has been with Neumann Kaffee Gruppe for almost 38 years. He started his training as a merchant in wholesale & foreign trade at Bernhard Rothfos in 1983. After stints in our Quality and Futures teams he started focusing on the green coffee trade in 1988. In between his positions at Bernhard Rothfos, he was also assigned overseas within Neumann Kaffee Gruppe – as director at Truxo Ltd. in London for two years (1992-1994) and as CEO at Rothfos Corporation in New York for 4 years (2008-2011). Since his return to Hamburg at the end of 2011, he has been Managing Director of Bernhard Rothfos GmbH.
