Strong coffee for strong people

How did the number one Swedish dark coffee brand find its way to Finnish coffee tables? More than 80% of the Finnish coffee market is dominated by two large brands. The coffee market is not growing; the challenger needs growth in sales to get more space on the shelves. Swedish Löfbergs wanted to challenge Finland's established coffee market and get Finns to pour stronger, darker coffee into their cups. The brand came on this side of Gulf of Bothnia. Together we created a concept that was purely designed for the Finnish market, for the Finnish audience.

A Finn deserves good coffee

We Finns are known for our dark character, unyielding mentality and “sisu”. Coffee – it is sacred to us. Considering all this, we Finns drink surprisingly light coffee. 

According to Löfbergs, Finns deserve coffee worthy of them – something dark and strong, more suitable for the dark landscape of the Finnish soul. Such as Löfbergs. A strong nation deserves strong coffee.
