Flava has decided to work with brand partners to bring our customers new brands that focus on quality. These brands offer varied flavours & experiences from globally commercial ones and most of these brands are not readily available in the local marketplace.
Our mission is thus; to work with commitment and passion to guarantee coffee of excellent quality and unmistakable flavour, in the finest Neapolitan tradition; to offer the market a wide range of products to meet the diverse demands of the consumers and the evolution in technology; to spread the cult of espresso all over the world.
This is the mission that has accompanied Caffè Kimbo in its 50 years’ activity
Caffè Kimbo has always focussed on keeping quality consistently high through a rigorous selection of the raw materials and scrupulous processing. An objective achieved thanks to careful monitoring of the whole production chain and the application of cutting-edge technology. The Kimbo brand is now based in London.
Napoli, the world capital of Italian espresso coffee. This is where Cafè do Brasil, the producers of Caffè Kimbo started out. It’s one of the great Italian success stories, that started in the ’50s in the historical centre of Naples where a small roasting plant was set up for the sale of roasted coffee to coffee bars and coffee shops. At the height of the exhilarating economic boom of the sixties, the coffee market reached a significant turning point: new packaging systems allowed the product to be sold in tins.
The founders of the company understood the importance of this innovation, which offered better preservation of the product and a wider distribution. They created the brand name – Cafè do Brasil – to supply coffee with a unique quality and taste to households and coffee bars.
Thanks to the expertise gained in the field, the company grew exponentially and is today one of the leading roasters in Europe, continually capturing new markets worldwide.

Sonnentor is the world’s largest organic spice & tea trader based in Austria. Café Mondo carries the Sonnentor range of organic teas including the popular Earl Grey, Green Tea, Fruit Delights, Chamomile, Rooibos, Ginger Energy Tea and Pai Mu Tan White Tea (higher in anti-oxidants than green tea). Very popular to our customers is the Sonnentor range of therapeutic teas; with names that many can relate to for their therapeutic benefits like Calming Your Tummy, Soothing Throat and Sweet Dreams to name a few.
SONNENTOR Kräuterhandels GmbH was founded in the Waldviertel in 1988. Starting point for the founder and CEO John Gutmann was the idea of selling organically farmed goods under the logo of the smiling sun on regional and international market. In 1992, an old farm in Sprögnitz was purchased and used as the business head quarters. It was converted to a production and distribution center and has been modernized and expanded over the years.
The SONNENTOR business idea is based on the concept of supporting small rural structures, which have a long-standing tradition in the Waldviertel district. To date, this business model has been the foundation of the ongoing success of the brand. For the continuous and consistent social and environmental commitment to regional suppliers, SONNENTOR has been recognized with the TRIGOS award in 2008.
With a 50 percent market share in the specialized organic trade (tea and spices, not including food trade), SONNENTOR is leading the market.
When SONNENTOR started out in 1988, there were three organic farmers who supplied organic herbs for the company. Today however, the Austrian SONNENTOR family has grown to over 150 farmers, who grow high quality raw materials for the organic herb and spice specialist. SONNENTOR also consistently applies their philosophy of sustainable regional development on farming projects in the Czech Republic, Romania and Albania. In 1992, SONNENTOR founded a subsidiary in the Czech Republic and a cultivation project, which started in Romania in 1999, was then supplemented by a marketing partnership in 2006. For their communicative activities in Eastern Europe, Ecoplus International recognized SONNENTOR with a New Territory Award in 2010 and SONNENTOR was also awarded with the “Dr. Erwin Pröll Future Prize” in the “Neighborhood” category.

SHOTT is no stranger to New Zealanders, it’s a pantry staple. Especially for locals here in Wellington.
We’ve all been enjoying hot lemon & ginger toddy’s over the chilly winters and refreshing fruit spritzers over hot New Zealand summers but did you realise there are so many more ways to enjoy SHOTT?? The goodness and flavour in SHOTT comes from real ingredients v’s artificial flavour which makes SHOTT your new best friend in the kitchen and behind the bar.
SHOTT Beverages began in 2006 when the Louisson’s (with the help of close family and friends) transformed their fresh juice company Nectar Juices into one of New Zealand’s first beverage concentrate businesses. Using the same expertise and ingredients, new recipes were created then reduced down into concentrated, shelf stable syrups so more New Zealanders could enjoy these authentic drinks. From there SHOTT’s range has continued to expand into premium coffee syrups and chai concentrates to become a much desired brand with loyal supporters here in NZ and 14 countries worldwide.
Still to this day we’re making SHOTT right here in Petone, Wellington the same way with the same philosophy – shots of real flavour, from real ingredients as mother nature intended
