Nilsson was created to provide everyone with a genuine freshly roasted coffee experience right here in Latvia. We have combined the best traditions of Scandinavian coffee production with the special tastes of different regions. That is how we have created several excellent coffee blends, clearly stating the flavor of each blend on each coffee package.
What's important to us:
The Nilsson coffee production process begins in the countries from which the coffee beans have come - Brazil, Ethiopia, Guatemala, India, Indonesia, New Guinea, Colombia, Costa Rica, Vietnam and other countries, to create specialty coffee blends. Ideal conditions for growing coffee are in the equatorial zone, the so-called "bean belt".
The Arabica variety grows best in relatively higher areas with abundant soil, whereas the Robusta variety is more suitable for lowland areas, even in relatively hot climates. The taste of coffee is influenced by the amount of rainfall, the amount of sun, and many other factors during its growth and harvest - these differences give each coffee its own profile of taste. That's why different types of coffee beans are blended to create a pleasing blend for our customers.
Prior to the coffee processing process, Nilsson first performs detailed research, which is repeated each time to create a new coffee blend:
These steps allow Nilsson to come up with a blend recipe that we and our customers love. Once the product in question is developed, we can start with the manufacturing process:
Nilsson manufactures roasted coffee using methods that have been known and tested for centuries. Coffee is sourced from proven partners and the roasting process is carried out in classic drum-type roasters. We make coffee using professional industrial equipment.
Thus, after a long and closely controlled production process, we are able to create an excellent product that has just been roasted, providing the best possible flavor and the highest quality!
Nilsson is a Latvian coffee company established in 2013. Over time, we have refined our coffee roasting recipes and greatly expanded our range of products and partnering models. Since 2019, we have also offered our partners the production and packaging of their own branded coffee, the "private label", as well as the ability to process and package the coffee delivered by our partners in the packaging of their choice.
Our production facility is located in a picturesque location on the edge of the Gauja National Park in Ieriķi, Amata district, Latvia. The basis for our production facilities can be considered the heritage of the Soviet era - the production facilities are adapted to the needs of our production site. The premises were once created as an emergency energy management center from where the power supply would be managed throughout the Baltic region in the event of a confrontation between the two Cold War superpowers. The Nilsson in its production plant, on the other hand, has been striving to maintain both the impressive interior details and to adapt the premises to the needs of a modern manufacturing company. Currently, the company's production facility is located in 500 square meters of premises where we carry out coffee storage, pre-processing, roasting, sorting, quality testing, grinding, packaging and finished product short-term storage.
Although the path to a modern and quality-focused production process is not easy, in contrast to many, the difficulties have made the Nilsson company stronger and our coffee ever tastier. Focusing on product quality, we are one of the handful of coffee manufacturers in Europe that use high-resolution cameras to ensure quality through high-precision algorithms to read the quality of each single coffee bean in the finished product, and to make sure our coffee is free of any impurities .
In addition, between 2016 and 2019, we have invested our resources in creating the highest quality coffee roasting line and fully implementing a precise and high-yielding coffee bean packaging line.
