In 1999 Café Encantos was founded by a group of young entrepreneurs in Hato Rey. A company that began as a start-up project processed coffee beans harvested in Jayuya, a municipality located in the mountainous center region of the island. Due to its high quality and careful processing, the brand quickly gained consumer acceptance. To supply the high demand of the product a modern plant was built in the city of Bayamón, where coffee was also processed for other brands and exported to Florida, the Virgin Islands and Europe.
During the early 2000s Puerto Rico was impacted by the Barista trends, and Encantos was the leading brand in the barista community. Sponsoring and producing the first Barista competitions in the island, and the first barista representations in the World Barista Championship, Encantos was the precursor in the new tendencies of the industry. This expanded to their customers with complete coffee programs that were new to the industry which introduced preventive maintenance programs to the espresso equipment and full-staff barista trainings.
Encantos continues to be a strong coffee brand in the Food Service Industry. With limited presence in the market, you can visit our store and enjoy 100% Arabica coffee from Puerto Rico with a few clicks.
