The Gaviña family’s coffee story began in 1870 in the mountains of Southern Cuba. After our family’s arrival in Los Angeles in 1963, we carried on a tradition of passion for producing gourmet coffee by founding F. Gaviña & Sons, Inc. in 1967. While our focus has shifted over the years from cultivation to coffee roasting and wholesale distribution, the end goal has remained the same: creating fine coffee—and doing it the right way from bean to cup.
The Gaviña family began producing coffee in the Basque region of Spain, eventually migrating to Cuba and then Los Angeles in the ’60s. For more than a century, subsequent generations have kept the coffee-making tradition alive, producing a range of aromatic blends—from pumpkin spice-flavored bags to espresso capsules—that are as rich as their history.
We are Gaviña Gourmet Coffee, a family owned & operated business with over 140 years’ experience growing and roasting coffee.
We believe that the best cup of coffee is made through a combination of the perfect bean, an expert roast, a commitment to social responsibility, and a love of coffee.
From helping to build schools in coffee growing communities in El Salvador and Mexico, to developing longstanding partnerships with charities in Southern California, we care about the coffee farmers that we work with and our communities at home in Los Angeles, CA.
You can enjoy each cup of Gaviña coffee knowing that it was made with love for our community, our suppliers, and our customers. That’s why we say, “We put our love of coffee into everything we do.”
