Proud to be
Your Coffee Partner
We have been sharing our passion for quality coffee for over a century. It has passed from generation to generation and yet the goal has always been the same—to share great coffee with you, so you can share it with yours. We believe being a great partner is about giving our best to our customers, always. So whether it is products, programs, tools or equipment, we will support you in whatever you need to grow and succeed. We would love to be your partner, and we hope you would be proud to be ours.
Everything we do, we do so that you can serve great coffee. It is a labor of love.
For my great-grandfather, great coffee was a dream. For my grandfather, it was a calling. Today, it is more than just great coffee that inspires us—it is family.
– Michael Gaviña, 4th Generation
Coffee is our family tradition.
Our story begins in 1870, in the southern mountains of Cuba where brothers José María and Ramón Gaviña planted the seeds that would become a Gaviña coffee legacy. Francisco Gaviña, our family’s patriarch, played and worked in those coffee fields with his father, learning how to cultivate, and later, roast great coffee. His passion carried on after our family fled Cuba and settled in Los Angeles. He founded F. Gaviña & Sons, Inc. in 1967, fulfilling his dream to roast great quality coffee again.
Today, we work together as the third and fourth generation Gaviñas to ensure we are providing coffee you are proud to serve.
Our Direct Impact™ initiative influences every business decision we make so that we can preserve natural resources and our environment for future generations of our family and yours.
