The seeds of Olisipo were sown when coffee explorer, Antony Watson, embarked on a two-wheeled adventure to the cradle of coffee, Ethiopia.
The journey opened his senses to coffee’s kaleidoscope of flavour potential.
Returning to London, Antony met co-founder Sofia Gonçalves who shared a similar passion for coffee.
Inspired by the growing specialty coffee community in Portugal, they decided to move to Sofia’s home country to start a coffee roastery. In 2018, we established Olisipo in the authentic neighbourhood of Ajuda, Lisboa.
