Since 2005, Kaffa has traded particularly high quality coffee from small coffee producers in Santa Barbara district in Honduras. One of our early favorites was Don Amado with its unique flavor profile, we were therefore particularly proud when he won the Cup of exelence in 2010. Again this year we have chosen coffee from Jose Amado’s part of the family farm who along with his four brothers, proudly continue the coffee’s tradition from his father Don Amado. It is challenging to grow coffee in this area as it is very jungle like, making the drying of coffee particularly challending. Pecisely control of these factors is that which makes this particularly interesting coffee, with unique taste attributes.

Slightly sweet aroma with hints of marzipan. Fruitiness of orange, with hints of tropical fruits like mango and pineapple. Bodied, soft mouthfeel and long refreshing aftertaste


Kaffa coffee roastery has its origins in the prestigious coffee shops Java on St. Hans Haugen and Mocca on Briskeby, owned and driven by world champion of barista art in 2000, Robert William Thoresen. After 15 years burn of business, Kaffa is now at home in a stunning location for production, training and education, at Ryen in Oslo.

We at KAFFA have a very clear philosophy and focus that coffee comes from a berry on a coffee tree from a coffee farmer in a geographical area. It is precisely these elements that make the coffee tastes like it does. We search out a coffee, often visited the farmer, shook his hand and always paid a good price for good coffee. We want to build lasting relationships with our suppliers, coffee growers. Fair trade, direct trade and traceability are words and expressions many like to use, for us they are a matter of course.
