It all began in Patras, in 1999. There, our love for specialty coffee drove us to establish our company.
We decided to establish our own coffee processing plant, investing in equipment and know-how, mainly from Italy.
We started operating abroad, launching our first Coffee Island store in Nicosia. Within three years we have managed to establish a strong network in Cyprus, which is constantly expanding to 49 stores today.
We built two state-of-the-art coffee processing and packaging units in Patras and expanded our existing warehouses. Investing in mechanical equipment enabled us to ensure the highest quality in the context of a given increase in production resulting from the continued expansion of our network.
We continued upwards, constantly expanding our network.
We dynamically entered the UK market, launching our first Coffee Island coffee shop in London.
We expanded across the Atlantic by opening the 1st Coffee Shop in Toronto, Canada.
In 2019 the unit was refurbished and another roastery was installed. Now, Coffee Island, a Greek company, operates on 3 major continents, opening in the United Arab Emirates, in Dubai.
