Each JDE colleague is a trained coffee expert. It’s something they are, not just something they do. Investing in our people nourishes their restlessness and enthusiasm. You can taste it in every cup.

By truly understanding the rhythms of our market, and the needs of our partners and their customers, we can truly deliver on our promise of a coffee for every cup.

History of expertise

Johann Jacobs and Egbert Douwes didn't know where their journeys would lead them. They just believed that everyone deserved the coffee they love. And that's what we still stand for today.

After years apart, Jacobs and Douwe Egberts combined strength and became Jacobs Douwe Egberts (JDE). Today JDE is the world's leading pure-play coffee company, headquartered in The Netherlands. A team of more than 12,000 coffee champions unite to deliver brands in more than 80 countries around the world.
