Our Inspiration

As Guatemalan natives, we are not just convinced we can offer a unique gourmet coffee drinking experience by providing some of the world’s best coffees, but we are also committed to give back to our local coffee production. Our location allows us to continue to source directly from small coffee farmers, to ensure ethical practices, freshest coffee bean, and exceptional quality! These producers have now become friends and part of our team, which allows them to sell their coffee at the deserving price for their great quality and continue to grow as a coffee farm and community!

our team

roberto Ríos
CEO

When Grana was founded, Roberto had one vision: add value to the coffee industry in Guatemala and offer our exceptional specialty and single origin in the coffee pod market! As a small family owned business, we work to maintain the quality of our coffee in our Nespresso compatible capsules, while helping our local coffee community, who has unfortunately been hurt by constant drop in coffee prices. Roberto had one goal, buy directly from our local producers, located less than 200 miles from our plant, and therefore support our local producers, but also their families and communities by eliminating the middlemen in the buying process! 

Adriana Ríos

Adriana is our Marketing and International Sales manager. After studying and working in the US for 6 years, she moved back home to Guatemala to join the family business and help put Guatemalan coffee on the map, while supporting our local coffee farmers!  Her hobbies include; drinking coffee with her bernadoodle who also enjoys a perfectly woofy espresso!
