Tchibo

Pronounced [CHEE BO] the name Tchibo is derived from the words Tchiling (the co-founder of the company) and the German for ‘bean’ (‘Bohne’).

1949

Hamburg native Max Herz, a merchant by trade, and his business partner Carl Tchiling Hiryan lay the foundation for today’s Tchibo Group. Their business idea of sending roasted coffee to customers by mail revolutionised the coffee market.
