We are Gringo Nordic, a curious little coffee roasting company in Gothenburg, Sweden. 

We source 100 % fully transparent speciality coffees from single farms, estates and cooperatives. A lot of the coffees come from organically certified farms. But a lot of the coffee comes from much smaller plantations, where a certification would not be economically possible. But we support them anyway, there is often a lot of good intentions behind each farmer, especially the ones that work with quality. They do not want to act stupid on the planet, and generally avoid the high costs of fertilizers to any cost.

We roast our coffee with a so-called slow roast method - by hand and in small batches - on the most energy-efficient roasting machine on the planet, using air flow technology. We adapt each roasting to each unique coffee so that there is a balance between sweetness, acidity and fullness, then we think that the coffee usually tastes best.

We really love coffee - we will make sure you never doubt it.


Gringo grundades 2018 av Johan Ekfeldt som tidigare grundade Sveriges första specialkafferosteri, Johan & Nyström. Tillsammans med sin fru Pernilla och affärspartner Magnus Alfjärd driver han rosteriet i utkanten av Göteborg. Namnet “GRINGO” fastnade efter att arbetarna på Johans kaffegård Finca La Tierra – i Colombia – började kalla honom det. Vi har även en kaffebar i vårt rosteri, där vi serverar espressodrycker, bryggkaffe och pour overs  samt att du kan köpa kaffebönor  och te och tillbehör att ta med hem. Om du vill ha malet kaffe maler vi på plats! Vissa lördagar  öppnar vi våra dörrar för en full Gringo-upplevelse, då vi har café med hembakt fika och är värdar för gratis koppningar (kaffeprovningar).

A warm welcome to our roastery shop and coffee bar! Here you always find our entire range of coffees, teas and accessories. You can also drink a good cup of coffee in our coffee bar, both from the espresso machine and as a brew or hand brew. 
The shop and coffee bar is open: 

Monday - Friday 8-16

Nästa lördagsöppet:   21/9 2024  11-15

On Saturdays there is always good coffee and seating in the roastery, in the coffee bar and outside. 

On the open Saturdays, we also have cuppings (coffee tastings) at 12 noon and 2 p.m. They are free and open to everyone. Drop in.
We try new addition to our line of Single Origins and other exciting coffees and talk about specialty coffee. Keep an eye on social media for any updates/further info!
Welcome to Gringo



For as long as I can remember, I've had my head full of coffee. For many years I was a dedicated hobby roaster and eventually got a job at Kahls Kaffe. After six educational years there, I co-founded Johan & Nyström in 2004. We were Sweden's first specialty coffee roastery and worked consciously to fundamentally change people's coffee habits.

After selling my share in the company and three years outside the coffee stand (I meanwhile managed to buy a coffee farm in Colombia), I started in May 2018 - together with Magnus & Pernilla - Gringo.

I really missed roasting coffee. I love turning on the roaster in the morning, sensing the coffee all day and working directly with the farmers and with all the passionate and coffee-loving people you meet in specialty coffee. It is simply the best job in the world.



You might say I got married for coffee. But you might also say that I grew up with northern coffee; lightly roasted and gently brewed. And that what I like most about coffee is to spread knowledge about specialty coffee and show how good it can really taste when all the different characters of coffee emerge and how good it feels to know that coffee is grown in a traceable and sustainable way where the coffee grower really get paid reasonably. 

I think the best thing about working with coffee is all the meetings, everything from coffee farmers to all the nice people in the coffee industry and especially with you who, just like me, simply love a good cup of coffee! 

At Gringo I hold tastings, coffee courses, meet guests in the roastery shop, help our customers and jump in basically everywhere when needed.



I am basically a chef, but realized that coffee is the most fun there is when I worked at Johan & Nyström as a salesman. After a year out at sea, I am back where I thrive best, among good coffee and coffee-loving customers. At Gringo, I get to dig deeper into the coffee and when I'm not out with customers, I take care of our production and logistics. 

If you're opening a restaurant or a new cafe and looking for guidance in terms of concept, machine and coffee, I am there at your ser ice. I love everything about the coffee experience and will make sure you get good coffee in no time.




Det är ingen överdrift att säga att jag är född rakt in i kaffets värld; min uppväxt har på alla tänkbara sätt kretsat kring allt som har med kaffe att göra. Flera av mina stora intressen – till exempel att resa och att träffa nya människor – finns i den spännande specialkaffevärlden och här vill jag lära mig så mycket det bara går. Under mina år på gymnasiet så jobbade jag som barista hos Da Matteo i Göteborg och nu är jag alltså en av de andra i gänget här på Gringo.

Now I combine work at Gringo with studying at Stockholm University. I hold tastings and barista training for customers, update our website and am responsible for our subscription service.




My coffee journey started early, I was just a young teenager when I started working for Tord Wetter at the legendary Mauritz coffee in Gothenburg. It was also here where I got my first insight into how freshly roasted coffee smells, and how good coffee can really be when it is roasted and brewed with love and emotion.

Working with the team at Gringo Nordic and continuing my coffee journey here therefore feels like a natural and exciting continuation. My main task is to roast, but you can also find me in the roastery shop and the coffee bar, at the packing machine or anywhere else where I am needed, the tasks at Gringo are many and varied.


When I started at Gringo, I didn't drink coffee, but now I'm just as fond of this noble drink as the rest of the gang. I am really interested in all the flavors found in good coffee and no two cups are the same. 

At Gringo, I make sure that our customers get nice bags, I label, pack and take care of most of the internal logistics. I also take care of customers in the store. 





One winter Saturday I sat with a friend and enjoyed a good cup of coffee among beans and coffee stuff in the roastery. Gringo was open on Saturdays and I got a strong feeling that I like it here. It was a nice moment that was enhanced by all the lovely Gringos who like to talk about coffee as much as I do.

A few months later I did my first day here at Gringo. To work with good people, both here at the roastery and with our amazing customers, to try new lovely beans from different parts of the world and to learn more about coffee every day - that's what brightens my everyday life.

At Gringo, I work with a little bit of everything – for example order processing, website, our web shop and roasting.
