Cafés Novell

Our Story

The company was founded in 1958 by Mr. Ramon Novell Vivó. Since its beginnings, Cafès Novell always excelled for its commitment to constantly select the best beans that result in an exquisite cup of coffee, with a delicate bouquet and a unique aromatic profile.

During the 1990’s, the company increased its manufacturing facilities and started expanding throughout Spain, opening subsidiaries in Madrid, Barcelona, Zaragoza, Valencia, Bilbao, Málaga, Ibiza and the Canary Islands. In 2011, the first international subsidiary of Cafès Novell opened in Italy, followed by additional offices in the United States, the United Kingdom and China.

Ramón Novell, followed by two more generations of the family, have shared the same enthusiasm and eagerness to explore the world of coffee. The passion for the sector and the eagerness to innovate has led Cafés Novell to continue producing quality coffee and to strive everyday towards seducing with the best cup of coffee.



When we talk of “responsible pleasure”, we are talking about an entire company philosophy that becomes a reality through our Corporate Social Responsibility policy. This attitude and way of doing things has resulted in us winning numerous certifications and awards that endorse the sustainability of our processes. Our alliance with UTZ Certified and Fairtrade, the two international certification bodies that accredit the global production of responsible coffee, are put into practice throughout all the production processes of our coffee:  

  • Control of the entire coffee production process.
  • Establishing a Code of conduct that encompasses economic, social and environmental standards.
  • Guaranteeing a fair salary for both workers and producers.
