Kyle Anderson and I co-founded Baratza 21 years ago. It’s been an amazing adventure to build the company to its current position in the global specialty coffee market. Over two decades later, the time has now come to look at where we are and determine the next steps for us and for Baratza. As we contemplated what the future would look like, it was important for us that any decision made would take care of our employees, consumers, distributors, manufacturer, and suppliers.
After a period of deliberation, consultation, and planning, we are thrilled to announce that today we have become part of Breville Group.
In Breville Group, we are confident we have found a partner with shared values for customer care and a passion for product innovation and enhancing the specialty coffee experience. We look forward to combining our strengths in design and customer support, while continuing to maintain our uncompromising focus on quality and customer care, to create a dynamic new vision for our business.
While we are now part of a larger group, we are the same team and brand. Staying true to who we are, while growing in a global marketplace, will enable us to continue to shape our future and place as one of the most admired and trusted brands in specialty coffee.
On behalf of Team Baratza we want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support over the last 21 years. We look forward to sharing this next phase of our journey with you and taking this incredible company to new, and more exciting heights, together.
