One Eleven is a family dream coming true.
When our little baby boy Gordon was born we decided to follow our heart and move from Budapest to the countryside to realise a long time cherished plan of an own specialty roastery. One Eleven is not only a specialty roastery. The purpose is to deliver a unique concept guided by the unity of creative knowledge and honest professional confession. We believe our strength is in our sense of flavours and people which is the best combination to create good coffee.
What’s behind our name One Eleven and concept roasters?
In addition to our single origins we decided to roast 111 specialty coffees which stand for 111 special people whose professional achievements we honour with our work. It’s about a common message and a cooperative flow that creates a special concept for each specialty coffee.
Why 111 aka One Eleven?
It’s a really powerful number. 1 stands for a new beginning and is the number for manifested thoughts. Furthermore this number means the world to us because our son Gordon's birth date numbers added give 111, spoken One Eleven.
In our team Attila represents the professional background. He’s been living and working in the world of coffee for 10 years. He began his career as a barista parallel to competing at the HBC (Hungarian Barista Championship) and WBC (World Barista Championship). Attila became Hungarian national barista champion four times (2008, 2009, 2010, 2012) but his life took a turn when he got into the WBC finals in 2009, in Atlanta. Up to this day he is the only Hungarian barista who could reach the finals at a WBC.
Since then Attila’s gained experience in several roles around coffee and has been an active player in the international coffee industry. After he finished competing he took part in several national championships as a sensory judge. Having acquired competitive practice and international experience Attila founded a spot for professional and hobby barista trainings in Budapest. It was more of a location for social events so he came to the idea to open Tamp and Pull Espresso Bar (est. 2012.). It is one of the first and internationally most recognised (listed in recommendations of CNN and the Guardian online) Hungarian specialty coffee shops. We are proud that the one in Czuczor Street has been awarded 3 times in a row as best in our country (e.g. Hungarian Dining Guide) and several Top lists have highlighted us year by year.
In 2011 Attila also established a supply company to support the third wave coffee culture in Hungary. It is the local representative of Has Bean coffee and Victoria Arduiro espesso machines as well. When the coffee revolution in Hungary started, Has Bean was one of the first specialty coffees on the local market. We appreciate to have Steven Leighton (Mr Has Bean) as a good friend as he played a main role without being even present in person. Over the years Attila has been a consultant in several coffee business projects for some big international brands.
In 2017 Attila was mentioned in a special edition of Forbes magazine among some really amazing people “ who have made Budapest to the best city in the world”.
