MaxiCoffee was born when 2 passions met: Coffee and The Internet.
Meeting between Jean-Charles Krompholtz (an online expert) and Fabien Folio (a coffee shop manager) in the South West of France.
The idea to create the MaxiCoffee website is born !
MaxiCoffee.com website launch.
The first coffee sold is from the brand Cafés Lugat, artisanally roasted by Lionel Galut, a local roaster, friend and partner.
Lionel joins the MaxiCoffee adventure.
Already 10 employees & 400 m2!
Taking advantage of Fabien’s experience, the team starts the « Create your own coffee shop » project.
Passion is something best shared and our first videos go online…
MaxiCoffee is growing and moves to bigger premises in La Teste-de-Buch (on the Arcachon Bay), a town best known for la Dune du Pilat (the highest sand dune in Europe).
MaxiCoffee.com offers over 4000 products on its website.
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee starts to linger around the offices with the arrival of artisan coffee roaster Cafés LUGAT.
40 passionate coffee experts join the ranks (roasters, barista, Coffee Shop specialists and coffee championship judges…).
Time to expand again ! The MaxiCoffee premises go from 2000 m2 to 4000!
Coffee Shops finally get their own training centre with l’Ecole Café (our own coffee school).
A new era for MaxiCoffee with the creation of a brand new supply chain to improve packaging and deliver parcels to our customers faster.
The adventure continues… We are now more than 60 employees in premises spreading over 6000 m2.
« Coffee Spirit » is born : the first French magazine totally dedicated to coffee, tea and chocolate. It is shared with over 90,000 homes.
It is a busy year that also sees the creation of our own line of products tailored for baristi : Baristator joins our catalogue.
Marco, chief coffee roaster for the emblematic Cafés Lugat brand, wins the French Barista Championship.
MaxiCoffee spreads the love to the UK!
