We are Gringo Nordic, a curious little coffee roasting company in Gothenburg, Sweden. Established May 2018. We are committed to great coffee and our customers.
We source 100 % fully transparent speciality coffees from single farms, estates and cooperatives. A lot of the coffees come from organically certified farms. But a lot of the coffee comes from much smaller plantations, where a certification would not be economically possible. But we support them anyway, there is often a lot of good intentions behind each farmer, especially the ones that work with quality. They do not want to act stupid on the planet, and generally avoid the high costs of fertilizers to any cost.
The first thing to say about speciality coffee is that it’s coffee. It’s picked, fermented, dried, peeled, sorted, milled, shipped, roasted and brewed in a myriad of ways, and finally drunk with or without pastries or food. It is also coffee made by artisans with a minimum of defects, coffees that are produced the way they should. With a grade over 84 points, set by coffee-experts. Clean and sweet coffees. Good honest coffees.
We slow roast our coffee in small batches on the most energy efficient roasting machine on the planet, using air roasting technology. We adapt each roasting to each unique coffee, so that there is a balance between sweetness, acidity and fullness, then we think the coffee usually tastes the best. We focus on drink-friendly pleasurable coffees.
We genuinely love coffee - we’ll make sure you never doubt it.
These are our original coffees, we have invented them and they can only be found here. Three different flavor profiles and names, each blend is divided into Brew and Espresso. We hope you will find your favorite.
They have personality, show complexity and have a strong personality that is affected by how and where they have grown. This is the type of coffee we sell as Single Origin.
This is an Organic Italian Espresso - our version of how a really good Italian-styled Espresso should taste. The small percentage of robusta gives it a smooth, bittersweet chocolate flavor.
HABLA LA TIERRA
Finca La Tierra is our own 10 hectare coffee garden in Cauca, Colombia. We bought a fairly decayed farm at the beginning of 2017 because we want to learn how to grow coffee in reality. Johan has traveled in a lot of coffee countries and visited more coffee farms than most. But this is something completely different, this is hard work and full commitment.
My love for coffee started early and for many years I was a dedicated home-roaster; dark-roasting those beans in many different ovens in second-hand apartments and campuses. My eagerness to learn more about coffee got me a job at an industrial coffee roaster. After 6 years of selling, roasting and marketing mostly industrial coffee, I 2004 co-founded Johan & Nyström. We were Sweden’s first speciality coffee roaster and the experience was a 10 year rollercoaster ride. After selling the company and 4 years in the wilderness, I am back where I belong.
I have truly missed roasting coffee. I love turning on the roasting machine in the morning, smelling the coffee all day long och work directly with the farmers. It has been a journey getting back to the first love of coffee, and I am thankful that I am in many ways back where I started, a true love for coffee and the industry with all the passionate people.

You might say that I got married into coffee. But you might also say that I have grown up with ”kokkaffe”, a specialty in northern Sweden; a coffee that is lightly roasted and gently brewed. I like spreading knowledge about specialty coffee and showing how nice a nice cup of coffee can really taste when all the different flavors of the coffee come shining through. And to know that this coffee is bought in a way so the farmer can make a living out of it. Sustainability is both social and economic to me. I especially love meeting all the friendly people that are involved in coffee - coffee farmers, baristas, shop owners and those, just like me, who simply love a good cup of coffee!
At Gringo, I arrange cuppings, coffee courses, meet guests in the roastery shop and make myself useful everywhere where I am needed.
With his background as a chef, Magnus has a big love for food & drinks, which he combines with a passion for exercising - yes he might not look like an athlete, but throw him in the ocean and he is fast as a shark. After some time out in the wilderness, he is now back where he belongs, among great coffee and coffee loving customers. If you are opening a restaurant or new coffee shop and are looking for guidance when it comes to the concept, machinery and coffee selection, Magnus is the guy to talk to. He loves solving problems and is the best coffee guide you can find (he will set you up with the right kind of coffee in no time).

Coffee has been a big part of my life, ever since my mother started a café in Järna 10 years ago. Before I ended up at Gringo, I worked as a chef and waiter, so just like the rest of the gang here at Gringo, natural wines, good food and coffee are some of my obvious interests.
I moved to Gothenburg in May 2020 and a few months later I started working at Gringo. Here I do like the rest of the gang and roast, pack and deliver coffee, plus everything else that happens here during the days.

I'm the only one at Gringo who is not crazy about coffee, but I slowly learn to understand what the fuzz is about. But most of the time I prefer to drink a good energy drink.
At Gringo, I make sure that our customers get nice bags, I label, pack and handle most of the internal logistics.
