About us

For several generations, everything in our family has revolved around the best coffee. For perfect premium enjoyment, we select the highest quality coffee varieties from all over the world, which we subject to careful quality testing throughout the entire refinement process. After careful cleaning, the beans are roasted separately for a maximum of 20 minutes at 180 to 220 °C before being combined into different blends. The particularly gentle long-term roasting process produces premium coffees with a full-bodied, digestible taste profile and a perfect crema.

In addition to taste, we attach particular importance to ease of preparation and the fact that our coffees are ideal for the most common preparation methods.
As a family business operating on the global coffee market, we are aware of our ecological and social responsibility. We therefore support the work of the Mondberge Initiative and its sustainability and social projects in some of the regions where our coffees originate.

In 1847, A. Joerges opened a wholesale business in Frankfurt am Main and began supplying his city with selected delicacies from all over the world.

In its eventful history, the company has survived times of war and economic crises. No matter how difficult the times were, the region could always rely on "its Joerges".

In 1982, the Hühsam family took over responsibility for the almost 150-year-old company. Heinz Hühsam, himself a grocer, had been a customer of A. Joerges for many years. He recognized the potential of the company, whose succession was unclear at the time. With the purchase of the company, A. Joerges GmbH remained a family-run business.
Heinz Hühsam focused the business on trading and roasting coffee. His vision was simple: to make the best coffee available to everyone - far beyond the Frankfurt am Main region.

In the years that followed, the company grew primarily through the distribution of "Minas Kaffee" and the "EffEff" catering brand. During this time, Andreas and Peter Hühsam took over the management of the company.

In 2004, the family business launched the house brand Gorilla coffee, which is now popular throughout Europe. At the same time, the Joerges coffee roastery established itself as a private label specialist that can also supply large quantities of the highest quality to its customers at home and abroad.

Eight years later, in 2012, the company moved into new headquarters and a state-of-the-art production site in Obertshausen near Frankfurt am Main.
A few years ago, the "Gorilla Store" opened at this new location - and what was once just a factory outlet became a small coffee experience. In addition to the main product, coffee, a selected line of other products, such as barbecue sauces and gin, as well as a range of merchandise clothing were created.

When the successors joined the management team, the Gorilla brand was not only rejuvenated in terms of personnel. A comprehensive design relaunch of all Gorilla individual packaging was also carried out at the end of 2023. The presence of the brand and its products in the retail sector has already been further expanded in recent years. Intensified marketing and sales activities ensure that Gorilla coffee is becoming increasingly well-known throughout Germany. The Joerges corporate brand has also been given a sharper brand image as part of this process.

What has remained the same over the years is the motto "good coffee for everyone".
