Since 1999 until today!

In 1999, our love for coffee inspired us to open a traditional coffee shop in Patra…with a modern twist.

Since then, we give coffee lovers the opportunity to enjoy a great range of new blends, as well as offering the equipment needed to prepare an excellent quality coffee at home.


Responding to our customers’ and partners’ call, we adopted a new visual identity (logo redesign and packaging), a modern design and a new architectural concept in our stores. The successful cooperation with the world-renowned architects Kourkoula – Kokkinou has turned Coffee Island stores into cosy meeting places.

In November 2016, Coffee Island expanded to the United Kingdom opening its first store in Covent Garden, London while in May 2017 another store opened in Toronto, Canada.


Key milestones of our journey
2006 We make the decision to establish our own production unit for the production and processing of coffee, investing in equipment and expertise mainly from Italy.

2009 We become active abroad with the opening of the first Coffee Island store in Nicosia. Within three years we have managed to create a strong branch network in Cyprus, which is continuously expanding, numbering 27 stores until now.

2010 We totally renovate our stores and incorporate coffee-on the-go services, adopting the current concept that combines the warmth of a traditional coffee shop with the atmosphere of a modern espresso bar. This innovative shift in our course has satisfied the current needs of our customers, who deeply appreciate our dedication to excellence.

2012 We establish two ultra-modern units for processing and packaging coffee in the area of Patras and expand our warehouse facilities. Investing in engineering equipment gives us the opportunity to ensure the best quality under the given increase in production, resulting from the continuous growth of our branch network.

2013 – 2014 We keep growing, constantly expanding our network.

2016 We enter the United Kingdom market by launching our first ever Coffee shop in London
