In 1995, "Paris Coffee Co Ltd UK" was founded with sole owner Mr. Paris Diamandouros and business activity was the export of coffee from the transit area of Thessaloniki to nearby countries such as Montenegro, FYROM, Albania and Serbian, areas which are closer to Thessaloniki than from Koper port in Slovenia. Another company named "DST Trading" located in Cyprus was founded with partner Mr. Paris Diamantouros and Mr. Dimos Tsolakis & his sons Stavros & Dimitris. This company's activity was the import and export of all kind of nuts and other commodities.
n the year 2000, those two companies consolidated and formed "PARIS DST Trading Company" in Cyprus. Main business of the company was coffee but nuts also remained in practice. This company gradually built a very good name both with its suppliers and customers - coffee bags with "PARIS DST" marks were considered of premium quality, as indeed they were.
Until 2007, the last year of business activity, "PARIS DST" grew and became to be the most important coffee merchant in Thessaloniki, competing locally but also internationally with the other traders in Koper. The more important factor of this growth was, of course, the impeccable reputation of the company in these markets.
