A little coffee bean with a rich history
The great crossing from America to Hamburg was just one of Darbohne’s many stories. Later she got to know Hamburg, then all of Germany and at some point she even flew to Mars! On her adventures, Darbohne kept on making exciting acquaintances: She met with Mickey Mouse in person, encountered garden gnomes and elves and even made friends with an alien. As you can see, it was never boring with Darbohne. However, besides her career as a comic star and adventurer, Darbohne also had another task: She acted as brand ambassador for J.J. Darboven and often appeared in advertising material for our coffee – that is, if coffee was available at all: during the Second World War, when J.J. Darboven had to put its coffee production on hold due to the lack of coffee beans and switch to Koff, its coffee substitute beverage, Darbohne was also away for a long time. Darbohne’s life has always been closely tied to J.J. Darboven’s business - so much so that for a while we devoted ourselves to giving her her very own coffee.
I’ve barely changed since 1927? Thank you, neither have you!
We are delighted that Darbohne has found a new home on this website. What does that mean? It means that soon you will be running into Darbohne more often around here. Be ready for entertaining meetings and exciting stories – one thing is for sure:
I know my coffee beans – after all, I am one!
During her journeys, Darbohne has gathered plenty of experiences and naturally she wishes to share her knowledge of coffee (beans) with you. But Darbohne also knows to talk about other things – for example about our social activities for coffee farmers and their families on site in the cultivation countries. Or about our sustainable approach to raw materials and energy. Because, just like us as a company, Darbohne considers it her responsibility to lead by example and to provide the world with more than just extraordinary taste and a cheerful smile.
