Invitation to fair coffee

11.01.2022 | Frauenfeld


Martin and Rebecca Kull and the management are pleased to announce the following innovation for the beginning of the year: By the end of February at the latest, first-class coffee will be available free of charge at all major HRS locations.

The felfel company will install a Gavetti coffee machine in each location, which will automatically produce the entire range of coffee specialities - from ristretto to flat white to latte macchiato - at the touch of a button and in the best barista quality. HRS covers the service fee and the cost of the drinks. This invitation to consume the entire coffee is also intended as a thank you to the employees for their great commitment under often difficult conditions.

The coffee meets high ecological and social standards and is sustainable and fair. The 100% Arabica beans come from certified organic farmer cooperatives in South America and are grown organically without synthetic fertilisers or chemicals. They are roasted in an Italian family business. The coffee grounds are processed into green electricity in Switzerland. It also means we can do without pods and the waste they create.

The introduction of the Gavetti coffee machines will begin in Basel and Frauenfeld in January, after which the other larger branches will take their turn. The introduction is not possible everywhere at the same time because not enough machines are available yet.

Felfel has been around since 2014, and HRS has had the "smart fridge" at the large locations since 2017, which is when the company started. Since then, due to the pandemic, a delivery service has been added and, two months ago, the coffee offer. We are pleased to work with this friendly start-up and to make a contribution to Fairtrade and sustainability together with all of you while drinking coffee.
