Coffee enthusiasts
since 1950

Our story begins with a small shop opened by the founder Lluís Saula Pons in the Sant Antoni neighborhood of Barcelona, in the year 50. Very soon his wife, Mª Teresa Puig Montserrat, joined the business, bringing her commercial skills and an unparalleled enthusiasm. less than her husband. Since then, finding, roasting and sharing with you the coffee we love has been our top priority. And it is from respect and perseverance, but above all, from the passion that moves us.

The new Saula generation

From our founder to currently his three sons, the tradition and love for the things well done have endured over time. Because only when you keep intact what makes you special, you can continue to be so.

Lluís Saula

In one way or another, Lluis Saula has always been linked to the company founded by his father. But it was his parallel experience with his own food business that gave him the necessary knowledge to make the family project grow and evolve.

Lluis is curious, restless and entrepreneurial by nature, traits that have made him, and therefore Café Saula, pioneers in the generation of deep and complete experiences around coffee. His travels, perfectionism and innovation, combined with the passion and respect he feels for what he does, are the bedrocks that sustainthe family business.

Having trained as wine Sommelier between 2018-2021, led Lluis to develop an organoleptic world around coffee, bringing it closer to wine tastings and building a parallel universe that culminates in the launch of the Sommelier Cup.

Joan Saula

Joan Saula is the technical component of the family business. He joined the company in 1996 as Head of Purchasing, but it wasn't until 2005 when he took on the Quality Manager role. Joan is responsible for guaranteeing the highest quality coffee, meaning the selection and origin of the grain, the roasting process and the packaging; All to ensure a holistic quality control.

Joan has an outstanding olfactory and gustatory sensitivity, qualities that have been brought to light by years of laboratory testing. These are essential for the creation of fine, balanced coffee blends.

In 2017, with the intention of taking his sensory skills to a higher level, he decided to become a certified Q Grader, an exam consisting of 22 tests, certified by the SCA and which signifies the most prestigious title as an Arabica coffee taster. So is the exigence, that the certificate has to be renewed every three years to keep up to date and gauge his level of specialisation, demand and professionalism.

The art of making
our planet last

Because we respect the coffee we make, we respect the land that gives it to us. We understand the only way to continue sharing quality coffee with you is by caring for and loving the planet that makes it possible.

That's why, from cultivation to packaging, we are demanding, responsible and rigorous in our understanding of coffee and its environment.

We guarantee
a sustainable production

15 years ago, Café Saula was the first company in Catalonia to obtain the CCPAE certificate (Catalan Council of the Organic Production). With it, we became pioneers in the production of 100% organically grown coffee.

Since 2006, we have been developing a range of fair trade coffee beans under the Café Amigo brand, which selects its beans from the mountainous areas of Central-South America and Africa. The result is an aromatic, low-acid, sweet bodied cup with a persistent crema. Thanks to the FLO seal (Fairtrade Labelling International), we guarantee that the coffee has been produced and traded under international fair trade standards, offering you a friendly solidary cup.

A culture that unites us.

Coffee is not just coffee. It’s stopping for a moment. It’s breathing. It’s getting lost in the aroma. It’s sharing time. It’s creativity, a ritual, but above all, it’s yours. That's why we treat not only coffee, but everything built around it with the utmost respect.
