Lukas Van Vyve

I’m Lukas, and I love coffee almost as much as I like learning languages (and I like language learning a lot). I also like writing. So to bring them all together, I founded Emergent Brew.

At Emergent Brew, we work with experts to research the (home) barista space and experiment with beans and brewing techniques. And I want you to be part of that journey, so we can all learn to brew and enjoy that perfect cup of coffee.

(Also, this project allows me to spend 30 minutes every morning painstakingly grinding my coffee beans and preparing a cup of fancy Chemex coffee. Mission accomplished.)

I’m Jean-Luc,  and I co-founded Emergent Brew with Lukas, my business partner and my son.

I personally drink several cups of coffee a day, especially to catch up with colleagues during a break or just with friends. Including the daily cup of Chemex coffee Lukas prepares in the morning!

I have spent my whole professional life the last 30 years in food industry (chocolate biscuits, desserts, sauces, soups, …) and l love the many ways food can create moments of pleasure!

About coffee: it’s fascinating in how many ways coffee beans can be turned into a world of taste!

At Emergent Brew, we will help you explore this world of taste with our tips & tricks to brew and enjoy the perfect cup of coffee!
