This coffee is of the highest quality. All the coffee that we at Johan & Nyström purchase is specialty grade coffee, which means that it has received over 80 points on a 100-degree scale. In order to achieve such high scores, it is necessary that the farmers to take careful care of their farms, their crops and above all their coffee trees. Not all farmers we work with are certified with official certifications, but they all work with sustainable methods with respect both for mother earth and those who inhabit it.
Our purchasing philosophy is pretty much based on buying ”as much as we can from as few producers as possible”. In this way, we can create long-term relationships with farmers who share our philosophy and together make a real difference. Because by continuously rewarding high quality we can together raise the standard for coffee farmers around the world.
So, we buy a lot of the coffee that we put in our espresso and brew blends, and then some really fun micro lots that we then launch as our Seasonal Origin-series during the year. In this way, we can take advantage of larger parts of each farm's harvest than if we only bought a few bags of a micro lot.
The recipe for brew blends use the following philosophy; one part from Central or South America where origins such as Guatemala, Nicaragua, Peru or Honduras are represented. Here we have several farms and cooperatives that we have been working with for a long time. Then there is always a coffee from East Africa, either from Burundi or from Ethiopia. Here, too, we have worked with these producers for several years and their coffee is always of really high quality.
The last coffee origin is Brazil, a country with an incredibly large coffee production. The climate and weather on the high plateaus give the coffee ideal conditions to thrive. Coffee from Brazil often has a bad reputation as the country partly allows strong pesticides but also largely grows in an industrial way and sells low-quality coffee that is roasted dark by coffee roasters all over the world. This is not the coffee we buy.
None of the coffee farmers we work with want to spray their cultivation with anything at all, as it disrupts the natural cycle with various plants, insects and animals on the farm. Farms that promote so-called polycultures and protect biodiversity more often produce high-quality coffee.
The coffee we buy is grown at high altitude on slopes where the coffee plants thrive, and the beans develop more and better flavours. We like to buy really good coffee and pay a fair price for it. Because it is with the demand for quality that we can show the way forward for the coffee industry.
The coffee is then blended and roasted by our roastmasters at the roastery in Skogås outside Stockholm and each brew blend has its own specific roast profile. So that even if the origin changes during the year, you will recognize the taste.

The Farmers series. is a tribute to the skilled and dedicated producers which we have a close relationship with. For this series, we purchase limited quantities of specific lots that really stand out when we taste them. It could be the variety or a specific part of the farm that truly brings out the best in the coffee. The flavours of these coffees are often sweet and floral, with hints of fruit or berries, broadening the horizons on what coffee can taste like. It is with a lot of pride we highlight our producers and their incredible craftsmanship.
The Prime series is the top tier of specialty coffee. These coffees are of unmatched quality and flavour and drinking them is an experience itself. Sourced only 3-4 times a year, our Prime coffees are extremely limited and highly coveted, with only around 200 bags available of each. These coffees are often of exclusive and rare varieties and produced using modern and innovative methods. For those seeking the ultimate coffee experience, our Prime series is sure to satisfy even the most refined palates.
We specialize in specialty coffee, which means that all the coffee we purchase scores at least 80 points on a 100-point scale – a grading system established by the international coffee organization SCA.
We hold high standards for the producers we work with, both in terms of sustainability and quality. Both aspects demand more and come at a cost, which we gladly pay. The right price is worth every cent!
10 years or more – that's how long we have been working with several of our producers. Simply because they are the best, and we know and trust each other. When we begin new collaborations, which also happens from time to time, we do so with the intention of celebrating 10 years and beyond with them as well. Our close and longstanding relationships are built on a shared philosophy and a desire to improve the conditions for coffee farmers worldwide. Through sustainability and quality!
