La Cabra Coffee is a modern coffee company established in Aarhus, Denmark in 2012. We started in a small shop far from the city centre, a dedicated team aiming to offer something new and exciting to Aarhus, which already had a strong and established coffee drinking culture. Quickly, this dedication to providing outstanding coffee experiences turned into obsession - with a fast growing industry that was slowly spanning the globe.

Curious about what lay further down the coffee chain, we threw ourselves into sourcing and roasting our own coffee, our own way, in 2013. Part of the advantage of growing in a small town is a relative lack of external influence, allowing us to forge an honest and novel approach to coffee. This honesty and dedication led to a reputation at home in Aarhus, where a passionate team now runs 2 coffee bars, a bakery and a roastery.

Attention also began to trickle in from further afield, and today La Cabra is a widely recognised and sought after coffee roaster, and we are proud to be working with many valued and quality driven wholesale partners to create bright and transparent coffee experiences in cities across the globe, and with dedicated home users and subscribers in more than 40 countries. We are excited to further expand our coffee horizons with different projects soon to be announced.
