Introducing the executive staff of Spark Coffee Technologies, the parent company of Giesen USA.

It is our commitment to provide you the best available products and services for your company.
CONSULTANT AND COFFEE EXPERT
I founded Boot Coffee in 1998 and over the years we have worked with more than 400 companies in the US and abroad. Our key focus is twofold: quality improvement and strategic marketing programs. Apart from our programs for roasting companies, we also have developed a strong focus on the producing world. My training as economist has definitely helped this specialization. We have managed long term coffee development projects for national coffee organizations in Ethiopia, Panama and El Salvador. We have conducted studies for USAID, the Inter American Development Bank and for other NGOs specializing in sustainability issues. Last but not least, we have been able to create a niche for result driven promotion programs for exporters and producer organizations.
