The two founders LOA - Lottenbach Adrian & KIA - Kissling André with tampers from the self-produced line "Appreciation Humanity"
ENJOYING - The credo "enjoyment" has been inspiring and following us ever since the foundation of Kialoa GmbH in 2004. Our journey started with an invention of our own: the WUMBLER, an ingenious whisky glass that maximises enjoyment.
HIGH-QUALITY - In the following years we stayed true to the credo, but our focus shifted to high quality coffee preparation. Kialoa is now the general distributor for Switzerland and Lichtenstein of the leading coffee equipment brands LA MARZOCCO, ROCKET ESPRESSO, MODBAR, STONE ESPRESSO, ETZINGER, PUQPRESS and ARAM, and distribution partner for key-brands such as HARIO, EUREKA, ACAIA or COMANDANTE. We thereby offer the most complete professional product range for coffee preparation for both gastronomy and home user needs. Our products are the tools used by the best baristas in the most progressive coffee shops around the world on a daily basis.
COMPETENT - We do not only see ourselves as your sales partner, we also want to equip our customers with the knowledge and skills to prepare the perfect cup of coffee. We assist you in the training of your staff and hold internationally recognised barista courses in our certified training center "Barista Atelier". All our employees and retail partners are certified baristas and experts in terms of coffee competence.
CUSTOMER-FRIENDLY - Our nationwide gastronomy servicing network offers efficient technical assistance for your machines 7 days a week. Morning-Orders on our webshop are shipped the same day. Thanks to a nationwide network of distribution partners, private customers are guaranteed to find a competent reseller in their area.
SUSTAINABLE - With the label "Appreciation Humanity" we developed our own product range, produced locally by people with disabilities. We work with innovative partners and constantly search for interesting new products. Did you know that all LA MARZOCCO espresso machines are produced with 100% solar power? Our team travels mostly by bike and using public transportation, and we support flexible employment models with home office.
Living up to these values and finding new partners that share our values inspires us every day. Stay tuned what we have in store for you next. Literally!
As keen supporters of innovation and young talents, Kialoa is a long time sponsor of the Swiss Coffee Championships, as well as current sponsor of the Swiss AeroPress Championship and the Swiss Skills.
