The history of Beira Douro Cafésbegins in 1960 when Manuel Lapa, an accomplished expert in the art and science of making good coﬀee, decides to materialize his passion founding the company Torrefação de Manuel Lapa, Lda. Born in Vila Nova de Gaia, along the banks of the Douro River, Manuel Lapa ﬁnds in the emotional connection with his origins, the inspiration for what would become the name of his brand: Beira Douro Cafés.
From the very ﬁrst moment, a single goal was set: to develop a product at the level of the best coﬀees in the world. So, it was born a company with a strong and very personal personality, focused on the excellence of the product and seeking to do more and better every time.

This process requires a deep knowledge and strict control in order to ensure that all the quality that the producer endeavoured to achieve at the source, reaches the ﬁnal consumer in each cup of coﬀee.
