“One is only considered a professional when one understands the way of tasting Italian coffee” was a sentence that prompted founder Chris to have his first taste of espresso.

The strong flavor that astonished his taste buds ignited his determination to make a cup of fine coffee.

Louisa Coffee is committed to roasting coffee beans, finely stirring them, and controlling the fire all by hand in order to find the sweet spot that yields the perfect flavor from the coffee beans.

The brand’s iconic formula was developed after four years of research.

Named after the Italian goddess Louisa, the brand had an endeavor to let all coffee enthusiasts have a cup of fine coffee and a passion for the culture of specialty coffee.

In 2006, the first Louisa Coffee shop was established, initiating the blueprint for the world of Louisa Coffee as a chain of specialty coffee shops.
