Third Wave Wichteln started 2013 with the idea to exchange delicious coffee. With people all over the world. Third Wave coffee to be precise. Thereby the project Wichteln was born.
It became a platform. To connect people. Hobby coffee lovers, professionals, even coffee farmers. Together we built a map. Now, it is much more – a playground for you and us. For everyone who loves coffee.
Please read the instructions in order to know what the Wichteln is about and what you need to do.
If everybody reads and follows the rules, we can ensure a great Wichteln for everyone.
Fill out the form with your information (if the address is incorrect, you won't receive any coffee). Then, wait for the e-mail with all the relevant information, like the name and address of the person you need to send coffee to.
If you’re not sure where to buy Third Wave/Specialty Coffee, have a look at our map with over 1,500 locations.
Double-check the name & address. Send as soon as possible, so that the coffee will arrive as fresh as possible.
Most importantly, add a customs form CN22, and label the package as „gift“ and with „Whole Roasted Coffee Beans“ (then it should arrive without being held up in customs).
We know this is the hardest part. But relax, the coffee could come from the other side of the world, so it will take a while. When it arrives, enjoy the coffee, and share with others.
The Wichteln 2017 is running.
There are more than 2.000 participants from 60 different countries. Now the raffle will start and during the next days you will receive the e-mail with all relevant information, like the name and address of the person you need to send coffee to.
