In 1978, the seed that would eventually become the TecAIRE – Neocafé Engineering group was sown in Sabadell (Barcelona, Spain) by Jordi Cabré, a great planner with a passion for industrial coffee and cocoa processing.

A revolutionary new technology rapidly modernised industrial coffee roasting, especially the torrefacto (coffee beans roasted with sugar) process, which was transformed from a rudimentary craft method to the totally mechanised and modern process with the highest quality standards that it has become today. We were the first in Spain to be 100% designed and built using our own technology, becoming a Spanish benchmark worldwide.

In 2020, TecAIRE has 300 coffee, cocoa and cereal projects in 30 countries around the world.
