Robert Helming

Coffee Roaster

As a cameraman, photographer and steadicam operator for more than twenty years, I love living and working in Cologne. My passion for coffee was always there and turned into some sort of an addiction when I attended the first coffee and barista workshops. Raised in a family of engineers, I finally decided to learn the handcraft of coffee roasting and I was more than lucky to find my place at Van Dyck’s to share their passion for quality, style and the hunt for the perfect espresso.
