It's hard to beat the aroma of a fresh, steaming hot cup of coffee. When it's expertly made by a master-blender trained in the fine art of creating gourmet coffee, it tastes as good as it smells.
Coffee has always been the Gaviña family's guiding passion. When Don Francisco Gaviña left Cuba and established a coffee roasting plant in Southern California, he fulfilled a life-long dream. His children grew up on the plantation, learned to live and love the coffee business at first hand, and Gaviña remains a family company rooted in traditional values. His son, Pedro Gaviña, says their motto is, "Everything we do, we should enjoy."
Today, Gaviña's state of the art facility is located in Southern California. It's dedicated to creating gourmet coffee, innovative new coffee concepts, and, through their training program, teaching McDonald's employees the art of brewing great coffee.
Gaviña prides itself on maintaining a green coffee department that's dedicated to sustainability. As Pedro Gaviña points out, "Coffee is the second-most traded commodity in the world, and the economy of over 50 countries depends on it. It is vital that we look after farmers and look after land, as without sustainability there is absolutely no future."
Gaviña has grown to be one of the world's leading gourmet coffee roasters. Pedro asserts Gaviña is committed to delivering “the best coffee in the world to McDonald's.”
