COFFEE REVOLUTION SINCE 2004 Johan & Nyström was founded by a group of coffee-loving friends with the vision of a better coffee world. Our mission is to promote the craft by roasting tastier, more fun and more sustainable coffee. It’s not a job, it is a lifestyle and a passion. We will innovate, improve and challenge the coffee industry´s misconceptions about quality. We roast our beans according to an artisanal process called “slow roast” where the coffee develops all the good flavors and aromas inherent to the carefully selected beans. We hope you will enjoy our coffee just as much as we do.
