Hey folks! We have some unfortunate news 😞
Our coffee machine seems to be experiencing some technical difficulties and will therefore be offline for the time being.

But hopefully it won't be too long until you will be able to enjoy our affordable freshly ground coffee again β˜•οΈ Don't worry, we'll let you know when the machine is back in business πŸ™‚
