world’s aromas

Catering for any taste profile, we search for growers committed to quality, and always aim at developing stable commercial relationships. Also on the hunt for rare gems that are not always constant in their availability, we source from over 40 countries, always keeping on offer an extensive range of varieties that can suit any customers’ need. Sandalj believes in transparency and quality, to achieve a sustainable quality-coffee supply chain.



We offer a variety of coffees to suit any requirement. From exceptional traceable and Cup of Excellence lots, water decafs, to high quality Arabicas and Robustas, we tend to have about 100 coffees on offer at any point in time. We also have 16 signature Espresso blends, along with a number of single origin or blended decafs. None of our coffees are purchased on description: we cup every single lot we source and sell.



guarantee of excellence

A benchmark within the coffee industry, Sandalj implements extensive quality checks throughout the sourcing process. From quality-centred selection and purchasing, to proper milling, grading, sorting and shipping we assure quality from the producing country to the cup. When we find selection at origin has not been rigorous enough, we further clean and screen the beans in our warehouses to provide the best after-sale guarantee of quality.



Unique ready-to-roast espresso blends that have an assured qualitative continuity and can be consumed on their own, or further mixed with single origins to create highly personalized solutions. The Sandalj Blends are created both for use in espresso and cappuccino, and for moka, pods and filter extraction methods.
