Family & Coffee, the Perfect Blend for Gaviña Gourmet Coffee

“It’s more than just great coffee that inspires us—it’s family!” – Michael Gaviña. These words ring true for Gaviña Gourmet Coffee, a relatively new member of the Center for Family Business and, a company that prides itself on being experienced professionals in the gourmet coffee industry.

Gaviña Gourmet Coffee boasts over 140 years of coffee brewing experience and a family history as rich as their famous, and flavorful, blends. The company started in 1870 when, José María and Ramón Gaviña, left their native Basque region of Spain in search of a better life. They settled in the fertile mountains of southern Cuba and planted the seeds of what would become Gaviña Gourmet Coffee. Since then, the company has grown to house a 240,000 sq.ft. roasting facility, in Vernon, CA, with a capacity of 60 million pounds. Even though the company has grown, they still personally select beans, cup samples as they arrive, and oversee all aspects of the specialty coffee roasting and production every day.

The CSUF Center for Family Business is proud to have Gaviña Gourmet Coffee as a member!
