“400mg is a Specialty Coffee Roastery and Shop, Located in the Heart of Switzerland - Luzern.”
Coffee doesn’t come without water. For most of us water is available anywhere and anytime. For a lot of people however water is not easily available. Millions of people in Zambia and Mozambique for example can’t access clean drinking water. In this specific case, 4 out of 10 people in the Sub-Saharan Africa have no access to clean drinking water. Our mission is to help these people. Therefore, we have decided to collaborate with WASSER FÜR WASSER (WfW) to help to support water projects in Africa. SFr. 1.00 of every kilogram of our coffee being sold is donated to a long-term project with the goal of making water more accessible and improving the sanitation and hygiene (WASH) situation in WfW’s project areas.
You want to do something good as well and make your coffee even more enjoyable? Come and join us and support our collaboration by simply enjoying our variety of wonderful coffees.
WASSER FÜR WASSER (WfW) is a non-profit organization that promotes drinking tap water, integrates donating for water projects into everyday life and raises awareness of the value of a sustainable tap water supply. In Zambia and Mozambique, WfW is strengthening access to clean water, vocational training and sanitation. www.wfw.ch

Oskars – Founder and Head Roaster at 400mg Coffee
My greatest inspiration has come from traveling around the world, getting to know different cultures and the people who represent them. I have lived in different parts of the world, but I have found my home in Switzerland, which is one of the most beautiful places. I have always supported an active lifestyle and healthy habits play a very important role in my daily life. Coffee was always essential in my daily routine, that’s why it was the natural desire to explore its composition. There are many beneficial compounds found naturally in coffee and caffeine is a major pharmacologically active compound. A typical cup of coffee provides approximately 75–100mg caffeine. This chemical is an all-natural stimulant. This is the main story behind our brand - “400mg” is the recommended daily dose of caffeine per person, which is also calculated in 4 cups of coffee.
With the “400mg coffee” I want to share my experience and stories that can best be enjoyed with a cup of freshly roasted and brewed coffee. I look forward to seeing you soon and taking care of your daily dose of 400mg.
