My intern story

NKG is an attractive employer for trainees and interns. In this section they tell their stories and give insights into their daily routines, work-stays abroad and general aspects at Neumann Kaffee Gruppe. Come back often and – if you want – let us hear what you think!

When trainees become coffee experts

My name is Mirja and I am an apprentice at Neumann Gruppe. In this feature I will tell you, how my co-trainees (you can see one of them on the picture above) and I experience our apprenticeship in a whole new way preparing lectures about coffee origin countries. Tasty breakfast, good-smelling lunches, [...]

Looking for future colleagues

My name is Charlotta (2nd from right) and I am a trainee at Neumann Kaffee Gruppe. Like most of my friends, I finished my A-Levels without knowing which job to choose. Finally, I found Neumann Kaffee Gruppe which wasn't very well known, even to a passionate coffee consumer like me. We decided [...]

Meet our „Musterzimmer“

My name is Henry and I am a trainee at NKG. See in my short video-clip, why our big import-house Bernhard Rothfos has a sample-room and what type of work is done there. And if you wanted to learn German anyhow, this is a good start ;-)! [...]

My adventures in Kenia

As part of a trainee lecture series, we were asked to give a lecture on the countries that coffee is sourced from. With this in mind, we divided ourselves into groups of two or three and prepared presentations. Through our own research with the companies in the source countries and the relevant [...]

Working at NKG

Our corporate culture: strong values, satisfied customers

Have you heard the term “honorable merchant”? Historically this referred to a tradition of values and virtues such as integrity, respect, honesty, loyalty, reliability, conscientiousness and long-term thinking. It is precisely these values that underlie our understanding of work. We see ourselves as “honorable merchants of the modern day” who think long-term and value responsible dealings with our colleagues and business partners. At the same time, we promote a working environment that is characterized by creativity, trust, open communication and respectful cooperation.

New ideas welcome: we provide space for the exchange of ideas

Dedicated and skilled employees are crucial to the company’s success. We provide space for new ideas and learn with and from one another. Our Coffee Lounge and various meeting points at our Hamburg location invite our employees to quickly get to know one another and contribute to an open and cordial working environment through the regular exchange of ideas. At the same time, we encourage new colleagues to bring new impulses into our daily work. We believe that team spirit and continuous further development are at the heart of a long-term successful collaboration.

What makes NKG special

A global product, an international network and mid-sized structures – what an exciting mix!

Thanks to our unique intercultural network with locations in 28 countries worldwide, both our work and our thinking are shaped by different cultures, nationalities and perspectives. We are proud of our multiculturalism and promote the continuous exchange of a wealth of ideas and new perspectives. We learn with and from one another and thus create opportunities for professional and personal development. We regard visits abroad as an important part of our employees’ vocational training and further education. Because we see coffee as an international product with a virtually unique global distribution – as a commodity that is firmly anchored in so many different cultures.

Encourage and challenge: we place great value on continued training and education

Maintaining our most valuable assets in best conditions means continued investment in our employees! In addition to a manifold working environment, you can expect these numerous additional benefits:

  • Attractive pension schemes, some of which are employer-financed

  • Subsidized food and drinks in our Coffee Lounge

  • Subsidized travel with the HVV ProfiTicket

  • Internal and external training opportunities, e.g. participation in ongoing internal language courses

  • All employees have opportunities to enjoy coffee and gain coffee expertise

The variety of nationalities and cultures makes us unique and allows us to constantly broaden our horizon.
