Maillardos is a dream that we have been roasting in our heads for almost three years. We thought opening a coffee shop was a distant and unattainable dream. But after careful planning we have decided to take a leap of faith and pursue our dream now.
We would like to invite you on this special journey with us and become a part of this dream, because only together can we make it a reality!
The french scientist Louis Camille Maillard describes in 1912 for the first time the „browning reaction“, where Amines are transformed to new molecules under heat. Therefore it is the Maillard reaction that is responsible for more than 800 aromas, which appear through a careful roast of a coffee bean.
Switzerland manages about three quarters of coffee world trade; however the standard of coffee taste is mostly flat and underwhelming. Our desire is to fill this gap and bring back to this region the delicious elements that can be extracted from coffee- the flavors and freshness that give it its unique character. It is also our desire to give worth to those who work hard behind the scenes. That is also why we will be carefully selecting the farms from which our raw coffee will come from.

We want to bring something unique to Rheineck, a 3000-inhabitant city and its surrounding regions in the Ostschweiz, by creating a place where high quality coffee is being roasted and prepared for the local market. With that, an atmosphere is being created which increases the value and the culture of coffee and the people behind it. This Place, a combination of a Roastery and Café, shall be called ‘Maillardos’.
In the past year we have invested in preparing ourselves professionally to take over the needed tasks. While planning the budget of the coffee shop we realized there are many expenses we cannot take on by ourselves.

In order to open Maillardos, we need your support. In return you will directly benefit through giveaways or ‘Goodies’, according to your investment.

If the needed amount of CHF 30’000 doesn't come together after the set time, all the money received will be reimbursed to you (minus third party fees).
If the money comes together (God willing!), we will open in 2016, and you`ll be able to claim all your Goodies.

Coffee Shop Manager - Roaster - Barista

Uriel and Raquel are a young married couple living in the canton of St. Gallen, Switzerland. They both share love for coffee and cultures. Uriel completed his gastronomy certification in 2015 and a barista diploma certified by the Specialty Coffee Association of Europe (SCAE) in the same year. Most recently he completed a roasting seminary in Konstanz, Germany. In the meantime, he works full time in Sefar AG in Thal as a product engineer.



Raquel was born and raised in Costa Rica, where she graduated as Bachelor in journalism and specialist in marketing/communication. In the year 2014, she also completed a barista education in “La Máquina de Café” in Costa Rica. In Switzerland she currently works as an independent photographer for weddings & events.



The core of their hearts with Maillardos is justice. Using the coffee shop as a platform to make the difference in the way coffee is appreciated. Starting with the behind-the-scenes of coffee, choosing carefully the suppliers, and giving to the farmers the worth they deserve - which is sadly often forgotten and overpowered by the bigger participants in the business. Secondly, to always pursue high quality of coffee through fresh roasting and preparation.
