Our Coffee People
A history in coffee
Piazza D’Oro Espresso was launched to Australia in 1998 and is part of the Douwe Egberts (now known as D.E) family of coffee brands.
In 1753, Egbert Douwes and his wife Akke Thysses began selling coffee, tea and tobacco in their small shop in the Netherlands. Fast-forward 260 years of innovation and invention, and D.E is now the 3rd largest coffee roaster in the world.
In a relatively short period since it launched, Piazza D’Oro Espresso has become one of Australia’s leading coffee brands, synonymous with excellent quality and taste.

"With the implementation of record-keeping and good agricultural practices required for UTZ certification, we have been able to reduce our water use by 50% and production cost by at least 12%. This decrease was brought about by reducing spraying and through cheaper insurance premiums because of safety precautions."
