About

A humble beginning

La Cabra Coffee is a modern coffee company established in Aarhus, Denmark in 2012. We started in a small shop far from the city centre, a dedicated team aiming to offer something new and exciting to Aarhus, which already had a strong and established coffee culture. Quickly, this dedication to providing outstanding coffee experiences turned into obsession with a fast growing industry that was slowly spanning the globe.

Curious about what lay further down the coffee chain, we threw ourselves into sourcing and roasting our own coffee, our own way, in 2013. Part of the advantage of growing in a small town is the lack of external influence, allowing us to forge an honest and novel approach to coffee. This honesty and dedication led to a reputation at home in Aarhus, where a passionate team still runs our coffee bar and bakery.

Attention also began to trickle in from further afield, and today La Cabra is a widely recognised and sought after coffee roaster; we are proud to be working with many valued and quality driven wholesale partners to create bright and transparent coffee experiences in cities across the globe, and with dedicated home users and subscribers in more than 60 countries. Over the past few years we have further expanded our coffee horizons, moving to our larger roastery in Copenhagen, and opening our first international locations in New York, Bangkok and Dubai.

Sourcing the finest coffees

There is a constant need to travel for coffee, both to origin countries and to cities around the world, constantly seeking inspiration both within and outwith the coffee industry. We seek collaborations with talented creatives who share our drive, passion and curiosity. Each of these connections, however fleeting, has shaped how we create and share coffee experiences.

We have come to approach coffee with a great appreciation for our raw material. The character of a coffee cherry comes to life as a result of highly specific conditions, which require great skill on the part of the producer to create. We therefore only work with trusted partners to source our coffees, both directly with producers and with a select few devoted importing companies, but always with utmost quality in mind. We also hope to offer the freshest coffee experiences, by reflecting the seasonality of coffee harvesting as closely as possible in our offering. We visit origin countries several times a year, building relationships with skilled individuals, those who pour their work into the field, those who give their care to each plant and ripening cherry. Their expertise and passion is inspiring, and only pushes us further to present their work as best as we can.

A simple approach to coffee

Each coffee is created by a set of intentional decisions; we explore the influence of each on the journey from well-nourished tree to delicious and transparent cup. At our end of the chain, we roast with the aim to showcase and unveil innate quality and complexity, showcasing our carefully chosen raw material in the most transparent and delicious way possible. This is a straighforward approach to coffee, paying attention to green coffee quality above all, and then using roasting and brewing only to highlight the coffee’s finest qualities.

We constantly gather around the cupping table to assess our omni-roasting approach, searching for the optimal way to present each coffee. Profiles are continually in flux, accounting for the organically changing nature of our green coffee. We make all roasting and buying decisions on the cupping table, purely focussing on the character of a specific coffee, and showcasing its most delicious and exciting aspects. We firmly believe in this coffee philosophy, and stick to it very precisely. This method, while requiring only one roasting profile per coffee, is not necessarily easier or more convenient.

A focus on raw material

We have to pay very close attention to a level of green quality that supports this approach, and to how this will develop over time. We focus heavily on the freshness of coffee, both green and roasted, in order to avoid introducing taints into our cups. We always use clean and fresh water, of an ideal mineral content, to present the coffee in its best possible light. Once we have the correct roasting profile, water, and coffee age, the act of brewing is much more simple. A wide variance in brewing parameters can still produce delicious and transparent cups.

Brightness in coffee

We value clean and bright cups, but when we refer to brightness, we refer not only to the clear flavour notes present in the final cup, we refer to transparency in each of the stages that created these flavours. Through these bright coffees, we aim to take you with us on our journey through the seasons of coffee. We often find ourselves pushing boundaries of what coffee can and should taste like, but walking this edge is where our work becomes most exciting. Sharing these truly special coffees is one of the most rewarding parts of our coffee lives.

Through all of this, we remain curious. About all stages of the coffee process, about other sensory experiences, about the future direction of our industry. We constantly seek to improve in everything that we do, and be as transparent as possible in the process.
