Jacobs Coffee - Guided Tour of the Academy

Guided tour for groups


Jacobs coffee ...wonderful! A guided tour of the building where the world-famous Jacobs coffee company began – from heritage shop to view from the top! The original home of Jacobs coffee has now been restored to its former glory but with a contemporary reinterpretation, creating for Bremen a new attraction that will draw coffee lovers from all over the world. Johann Jacobs Haus at 20 Obernstrasse is once again a place where everything centres on the production, preparation and enjoyment of quality coffee – just as Johann Jacobs envisaged when he opened his first roastery and shop here 125 years ago. Visitors can take a tour of the lovingly restored rooms and learn all about the history of the building, the philosophy of the company’s founder, and the Jacobs speciality coffees that are roasted on site and change every quarter. The authentically recreated Walther Jacobs Room contains an exhibition presenting the family dynasty and its most important innovations for Germany’s favourite drink. In Uncle Johann’s coffee workshop, visitors are let into the secrets of roasting, preparation and storage. The tour ends with an exclusive visit to the roof terrace with views that take in all the most important towers of the city centre – including of course the Jacobs Tower in the new town. The global brand ‘Jacobs Krönung’  and the exclusive house brand Jacobs Specialty Coffee are back where they belong, breathing new life into the historical building and the enjoyment of good coffee.
