Dallmayr in Munich has been renowned for its specialities for some 300 years. As early as 1900, Dallmayr was already one of Europe’s leading delicatessens, was the purveyor to the Royal Bavarian court and could boast customers such as the German imperial family in Berlin. Today, we still focus on providing the finest quality products at all times and in all departments – whether coffee, tea or our delicatessen.
As a family company, we have always felt a sense of responsibility both towards our employees and towards coffee farmers and their local environment. We focus on specific projects in Ethiopia and Tanzania. The work we do in collaboration with the Almaz and Karlheinz Böhm foundation and the Jane Goodall Institute is very dear to our hearts. Our product range is rounded off with items bearing the UTZ Certified, Bio and Fairtrade seals.

Dallmayr is hot on the trail of the secrets of the coffee bean – why not join us?
