Clara's story

After 14 years in the UK and a decade in the coffee business, my husband, our 3-month-old baby Christian and I packed up our things and decided to move to Sweden, my home country. It was more than a welcomed move but there were still things that I missed from England and one big thing was some of the coffees that I had grown accustomed to having on a daily basis.

In the past 10 years, I had done everything from importing and distributing, to marketing, operations and brand creation and running a luxury coffee brand so I decided that this was my time to bet on myself and bring amazing niche, speciality coffees to Sweden and the Nordics. The little bean co. offers a range of different brands of coffee that are all unique in one way or another.

I am a co-founder of Decadent Decaf and as a coffee lover and mother I know how depressing it can be to be pregnant or breastfeeding and not being able to drink good quality coffee. It is therefore with great pride that Decadent Decaf is part of the range that the little bean co. sells. We offer decaf of the highest quality, decaffeinated without the use of any harmful chemicals and 99.9% free of caffeine.

Working in the coffee industry for as long as I have, I’ve also seen the impact that greed and mass production can have on nature. Chopping down trees that surround coffee production increases the land you have to grow coffee, but it leads to lower quality coffee, deforestation and the removal of homes for native birds. I am therefore proud to list Bird & Wild coffee on my site. For every bag of Bird & Wild sold a contribution to the RSPB, the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Centre and the Fairtrade Foundation is made. Bird & Wild coffee is certified Bird friendly and shade-grown by the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Centre.

I am also happy to introduce Brown Bear, a quality coffee brand from the UK that sells a range of blended coffees that have proven highly successful due to the love and quality that’s put into the products. Finally, the Fantastically Flavoured Coffee co. a brand like no other, pioneering flavoured coffee in Europe and bringing fantastic flavours combinations to the coffee market.

My hope and dream is to grow and add more high-quality coffees onto my online shop and always bring the best coffees available to my customers. 

The birth of the little bean co. comes from my desire for quality coffee combined with my passion about being a mother, being my own boss and creating a brand that I can proudly put my name on. I hope you will love it just as much as I do.
