We have partnered with the Elbphilharmonie

Melitta Professional is the new coffee partner at the Elbphilharmonie and Laeiszhalle concert halls in Hamburg. “We are delighted with this new partnership. The Laeiszhalle and Elbphilharmonie are like beacons shining out across Hamburg and far beyond Hamburg,” comments Marco Gottschalk, Managing Director of Melitta Professional, adding: “Our cooperation with the catering operators has got off to an excellent start. We will be strengthening this together over time so our partner can make the most of their business.”

Our customer service technicians have installed a total of 33 professional fully automatic coffee machines and filter coffee machines from the XT series along with accessories such as milk coolers, cup warmers and coffee carriers for the foyer catering facilities and backstage area. Small fully automatic coffee machines from the Caffeo range are being used in the musicians’ rooms. We have also fine-tuned the range of coffee and cocoa for the two concert halls. Bacio Nero espresso, Monte d’Argento café crème and Spezial Exklusiv filter coffee were selected from the extensive range of catering coffees at a tasting session. The cocoa that was chosen is the UTZ-certified Melitta® Cioccolata Style Milk Chocolate.

Everything from within our own company

 “We are the only ones to offer everything for the out-of-home coffee experience from within our own company: this means our partners can fully rely on us always being the right contact - someone who knows and understands the products and services and is capable of matching them perfectly to their needs,” Marco Gottschalk emphasises one of the benefits.

The Melitta Group places the emphasis on long-term cooperation

The Melitta Group additionally supports the content-related work of the Elbphilharmonie and Laeiszhalle. “With our involvement, we are supporting a colourful, richly varied and always contemporary cultural programme with international charisma,” says Tanja Wucherpfennig, Director of Communications and Sponsoring at the Melitta Group.  The corporate group has been supporting projects and institutions in the cultural, sports, education/science and social arenas for decades. In all of these areas, the focus is on the development of active and sustainable partnerships.
