Syrco Bakker received his second Michelin star in december 2018 at restaurant Pure C in Cadzand, The Netherlands and Rob Clarijs won the infamous international
The Indonesische roots Syrco has melt together with the roots from Zeeland Rob has in Oostenwind (East Wind), a coffee where heritage and roots are essential. During a visit to the Balinese coffee plantations the gentlemen decdes the Kintamani washed and natural processed coffees fitted the story seemlessly.
In the last few years the Indonesian coffee scene has shifted, where more farmers started to produce high quality specialty coffee. Founders of the Karana washing station, Rodney and Edi process coffee that is grown on the vulcanic mountain Gunung Batur in the Kintamani region.
mproving the quality of their washing station, teaching their pickers to pick only perfectly ripe cherries and constantly improving the quality makes their coffee outstanding.
Rob imported this coffee himself, straight from the washing station to the roastery: fair chain, as we like to call it.
Since this collaboration and this coffee is so unique, we wanted to give the full experience extra attention. Not only the packaging, flavors or story, but giving the final consumer a moment to appreciate all of this.
Therefore a standard mug or cup would not do the job and Rob and Syrco decides to pair up with Attach Studio, a local design studio that is specialised in small projects where experience is key.
Together they designed their own hand made porcelain, cups that told the story and improved the drinking experience. Cups where aesthetics, appreciation and drinking convenience are mixed in one.
Oostenwind is a creation by Rob and Syrco and isn’t just a coffee but a collaboration of craftsmanship, heritage and ambition.
