Our company, Apro Trade, operates in the Polish market since 1999. The founder is Tom Obracaj who, driven by his passion, has spent over 30 years in the coffee trade.  As international trader, he supplied major European coffee factories with beans purchased directly from plantations in all continents.

We are importers of high quality raw coffee from Speciality sector of the market. In our professional roastery we produce blends and single origin coffees available under our trade mark Tom Caffè®. Our coffee is roasted by hand strictly to clients order what guarantees freshness and continuation of high quality.

Thanks to our knowledge and experience we are one of the top companies in Poland specialising in complex consultations and training in all aspects of coffee business.

In 2002 we initiated first Polish Barista Championships SCAE/WCE (eliminations to the World Barista Championships) and organised and administer all related events in 2002 - 2012. Many of today key coffee professionals and authorities in Poland started their coffee career taking part in our championships as barista or judge.

in 2008 we initiated Olimpiada Kawy® (Coffee Olympics) coffee championships designated for young coffee professionals to test themselves front of judges and audience.  This has been another success for us where in the last 7 years we discovered many new young coffee talents.
