Alfred Coffee Shop on Melrose Avenue, Intelligensia Cafe in the Silver Lake section of Los Angeles, Olympia Coffee in Olympia, Washington, Blue Bottle Coffee in New York’s Bryant Park — what do all of these places have in common? If you said, great coffee you’d be right. If you said great cement tile, you’d also be right — Granada cement tiles to be exact! What makes our cement tiles and great coffee such a winning combination? Like the coffee served at these shops, our tiles are handmade and artisanal, crafted using a process developed in France in the 1870s and refined by our founder Marcos Cajina. Like the beans grown for these coffee shops, our cement tiles are made using environmentally responsible practices. We recycle the water used in the manufacturing process, we sweep up and reuse all loose concrete, cement tiles that do not come up to our standard are broken up and reused to make new cement tiles, we use local materials. We support our local community. And, like the coffee created and served in these cafes, our cement tiles reflect a global influence, drawing on the best designs from France, Spain, Morocco, Nicaragua (to name just a few of the countries that have influenced our tile patterns) to create a cement tile product that is at once timeless and modern and, like its liquid counterpart, the best of its kind.
