At Olisipo Coffee Roasters, we combine the alchemy of the elements in pursuit of a memorable coffee tasting experience in the heart of Ajuda, Lisbon.
The seeds of Olisipo were sown when coffee explorer, Antony Watson, embarked on a two-wheeled odyssey to Ethiopia, the birthplace of the arabica bean. The journey opened his eyes – and taste buds – to coffee’s kaleidoscope of flavour potential. Both he and co-founder, Sofia Gonçalves, were finally lured from London to Lisbon by the favourable climate, friendly people, delicious food, and growing specialty coffee community in Portugal.
Together, they established Olisipo in 2018 and are passionate about bringing people together through the sensory world of coffee.
