Our Coffee


At the heart of everything we do is family. Brothers José María and Ramón Gaviña planted the seeds of what would become Gaviña Gourmet Coffee over 130 years ago when they left their native Basque region of Spain in search of a better life, and settled in the fertile mountains of southern Cuba. And from the days when our father, Don Francisco, worked the coffee fields of Hacienda Buenos Aires as a boy, there have been Gaviñas running our coffee business. Today, we carry on the dream. We are Don Francisco’s four children: sons, Paco, Pedro and José, and daughter, Leonor Gaviña-Valls. Like our father, we grew up on the plantation and learned about coffee in the fields. Along with our own children, we still personally select beans, cup samples as they arrive, and oversee the specialty roasting and production every day. All so that Gaviña customers can be assured a wonderful cup of coffee every time, from first sip to finish.
