Cafe La Llave Espresso, Ground Coffee is one of the country’s best-selling espresso brands particularly among Latin consumers. It is full-bodied and highly aromatic with a rich, strong, bold taste. Scoop some espresso from the can and brew to your heart's content. Simply the best way to start your morning, for an afternoon pick-me-up, or after a perfect meal with family or friends.'Llave' means 'Key' in Spanish. Drawing from its history, Cuba is the key to the Caribbean and the green color signifies hope in going back to the homeland.
The Café La Llave story begins almost a century-and-a-half ago when two brothers, Jose María and Ramón Gaviña, arrived in the New World with a simple dream – to seek a better life. It is in the rich coffee-bearing mountains of southern Cuba where their story began cultivating some of the world’s finest coffees. From growers, the brothers then started roasting coffee in their estate, Hacienda Buenos Aires, gaining the respect and love of the community. It was also here where Francisco Gaviña was born; where he raised his 4 children teaching them the art of coffee - growing quality coffee and roasting it to perfection. Leaving Cuba during the revolution, Francisco and his family settled in Los Angeles, California returning to the coffee business in 1967 – fulfilling a dream of bringing an authentic taste of home to Latinos everywhere.
