André's has been serving up coffee from Kansas City's own, The Roasterie, since the beginning. The 25+ year partnership has celebrated a signature blend coffee as well as handcraft coffee chocolate bars.
Second-Generation Marcel Bollier’s favorite is the Gotham Espresso, used in the confiserie’s tiramisu, espresso caramel bars and specialty desserts. Second-generation René Bollier can’t seem to go a day without drinking our Gotham Espresso and oftentimes brews it at home. The Gotham Espresso holds a special place in Marcel’s heart as well. According to Marcel, 25 years ago, no one in Kansas City had an espresso machine, but he knew that they were extremely popular in Europe. Marcel bought a machine early on (mainly for his own enjoyment, but also for André’s) and began brewing up delicious espressos with our Gotham product.
“We only work with products of the highest quality,” explains Marcel. “The Roasterie provides us with that quality. The most important thing for us is the taste and texture of our ingredients. The Roasterie is consistently good. Their beans are not over-roasted or bitter. We always receive compliments about our coffee products.”
