Tinder for coffee
algrano is a Swiss tech startup that changes the global trade of coffee. We have set ourselves an ambitious goal: to revolutionise the centuries old coffee trade industry and make it more transparent. Through the algrano online platform, coffee growers promote and sell their coffees straight to roasters in Europe without worrying about the logistics. Awarded at our launch in 2015 as the best innovation by European Coffee Association, we currently count more than 1’000 growers and roasters from all over the world and just raised CHF 2 Mio. in funding to make algrano the #1 direct coffee trading platform worldwide.
This year has been a year of harvest at Algrano: the coffee startup has created 100 new relationships between roasters and growers and grew its team from 6 to 20. To continue driving digitalisation in the coffee industry, Algrano has raised CHF 4 million from its shareholders.
