Onan has been around for a while now, since 2004 to be exact. When he was younger, our founder Hans Onan worked in many cafés and always loved the warmth and the cosiness associated with coffee and tea. A nice cup can be an excuse to meet up for a chat with a friend, a way to start your day off right or the perfect companion while reading the paper or a good book. However, Hans felt like there was much more potential in the product. He realized more time should be taken and effort be made to master the perfect brew, refine the taste and explore the different ways in which coffee or tea could be enjoyed. When he was 32 he quit his job and followed his lifelong dream of starting his own coffeehouse. That’s how Koffie Onan found its place in the Parijsstraat in Leuven.
