Café Britt was founded in 1985 as the first gourmet coffee roaster in Costa Rica. Before Café Britt, it was virtually impossible to find a memorable cup of coffee in the country. It seemed all the truly exquisite Costa Rican coffee was being hidden away. This, of course, was not true. The simple fact was all the best coffee was being exported.
It was here we had the opportunity to pioneer great change and introduce gourmet quality roasted coffee to Costa Rica. As exporters ourselves, we were able to see the problem and we knew we could solve it; by reserving and roasting some of this fine Costa Rican coffee. We had all the ingredients for success: access to perfect coffee from the country’s best plantations, the finest mills, the roasters, and the obsession with quality. We combined all our resources and the result was Café Britt, Costa Rica's most remarkable coffee.
We were thrilled to discover this hidden gem and share Costa Rica's heritage with the world. Our enthusiasm for culture, nature and great flavors went beyond borders. In 2005, we headed south to Peru and explored this country's highlands for the best coffees and colorful artful crafts that transpire this nation’s fabulous legacy. Warmer winds blew in 2006 with our expansion to the Curaçao and The Caribbean where we parachuted our creative team into this fun friendly culture to create a line of products that truly reveal the islands' flair. The vast diversity of Chile's natural scenes and the warmth of its people blew us away... and we just had to become part of it. Café Britt Chile was created in 2007. With Miami themes and a highly skilled, friendly staff, we were ready to take on the challenge of this iconic city, known as the "Crossroads of the Americas." Our first shop opened Sept 26, 2008 in Concourse D at the Miami International Airport.
For over 20 years, we've had the pleasure of educating, entertaining, serving and, of course, celebrating each country's traditions with thousands of customers who visit our stores, website and roastery each year.
We’ve made a lot of close friends on the way . And we strive to show our appreciation by providing products and service that are each day better, each day more innovative, each day more a pleasure to receive.
