About Probat-Burns

In 1864, Probat-Burns was founded by three families in Germany. At that time in history, coffee traders were shipping the coffee and they were receiving the coffee, but what they needed was the engineer to build the coffee roaster. The Company decided to find the engineer to build it and from there the three families advanced as one group with one goal. That is the way Probat-Burns was founded by inventing and manufacturing the coffee roaster, which is also used for cocoa, and in addition to all the other natural products such as almonds, pistachios and peanuts, but the main focus was on coffee.
