In the beginning, there was coffee and a passion to roast the best product possible. Paloma and Marco, the co-founders of Puchero roastery, are from Spain and Italy respectively. After living in London for several years, they decided to stop, reflect and take a new approach to life. They travelled to new places and met incredible people along the way, whose love for the exciting world of coffee rubbed off on them. Together, they created Puchero, which has grown since 2015 to become a leader in specialty coffee and one of the best roasters in Spain. But the story doesn’t end there. Three years later, chocolate came into their lives. Inspired by the infinite nuances of cacao from around the world, at Puchero they roast beans that have been harvested and dried on the farm by small-scale producers to make bars of craft chocolate.
