Our Mission

The idea to start this business came up in March 2015 when we opened a shop on Etsy. Within short time it became clear that there's definitely an interest for vegan donuts. We got a huge amount of positive feedback and have sold over 2500 donuts already. This has convinced us to open up a shop.Our mission is to open the first vegan donut shop in Berlin! Our donuts are 100% handmade and cruelty free. We don't use artificial food colouring or any funky stuff, we believe in natural and fresh ingredients to create donuts that are better for you.

DE: Die Geschäftsidee entstand zuerst im März 2015, als wir unseren Shop auf Etsy erstellten. Innerhalb kurzer Zeit stellte sich heraus, dass es ein großes Interesse an veganen Donuts gibt. Das Feedback war bislang durchweg positiv und wir haben bereits mehr als 2500 Donuts gebacken. Nun sind wir überzeugt davon, einen eigenen Laden zu eröffnen. Unsere Mission ist es, den ersten veganen Donut Shop in Berlin zu betreiben! In unseren Produkten steckt 100% Handarbeit und sind tierleidsfrei. Wir verzichten auf künstliche Farbstoffe oder sonstige Zusätze, wir brauchen nichts anderes als natürliche und frische Zutaten, um Donuts herzustellen die einfach besser für euch sind.

Who we are

We are Bram and Jessica, two vegans in our mid-twenties. We share a passion for baking and cooking. Jessica started selling selfmade vegan baked goods at hardcore/punk shows at age 16 and worked in a Vokü in the Ruhrarea for 4 years. Bram worked for a vegan catering company at a multitude of festivals through the Benelux. Besides this Bram also played in an active band called Swain that has released a couple of records and has done extensive touring in Europe and the USA. Coming out of the DIY-punk scene and spending our youth setting up shows, we have learned to take things in our own hands. Driven by our ethical beliefs, we're trying to advertise veganism in a positive way - by convincing people with delicious donuts.

DE: Wir sind Bram und Jessica, beide Mitte 20 und seit mehreren Jahren vegan. Wir teilen unsere Liebe zum Kochen und Backen. Jessica hat bereits mit 16 Jahren angefangen selbstgemachte, vegane Leckereien auf Hardcore/Punk Konzerten zu verkaufen und hat 4 Jahre in einer Vokü im Ruhrgebiet gearbeitet. Bram war für eine veganes Cateringunternehmen auf einer Vielzahl von Festivals im Benelux-Gebiet im Einsatz. Außerdem spielt Bram Gitarre für die Band Swain, hat schon mehrere Alben veröffentlicht und hat von Nordamerika bis Europa schon so ziemlich alles abgetourt. Wir beide teilen denselben Background der DIY-Szene, haben in unserer Jugend etliche Konzerte organisiert/gespielt und große Menschenmengen bekocht. Wir wissen also, was es heißt, Dinge in die eigene Hand zu nehmen und hart für unsere Ziele zu arbeiten.

Our vision

A small, cozy shop that smells like freshly made donuts and coffee. A place to hang out with your friends and family or just come in really quick to pick up a box of donuts to bring to your office. We're also planning to offer delivery per bike and catering for your birthday party or whatever!

DE: Ein kleiner, gemütlicher Laden, der nach frischen Donuts und Kaffee riecht. Ein Platz, der zum Rumhängen mit Freunden und Familie einlädt oder auch nur als kleiner Zwischenhalt dient, um eine Box mit Donuts auf dem Weg ins Büro mitzunehmen. Ebenfalls geplant sind Lieferungen per Rad, damit die Donuts auch zu euch kommen sowie Catering für Geburtstage oder ähnliche Anlässe!
