da Matteo means “at Mats’ place”, and it sure feels like coming home to someone when entering their facilities. Mats and the crew has done a great job creating a café with lovely environments (and great coffee!).
These environments, which I had often grabbed a coffee in, tempted the photographer in me and I contacted Mats – and suddenly I sat, having a coffee with the founder of the coffee chain, and got to hear about him and the story of his life. Soon, my interest also turned into a job as I roamed their cafés with my camera – and now my pictures can be seen at their website www.damatteo.se
They currently have four coffee shops in Gothenburg, one newly opened in Stockholm and soon Borås will get one too! da Matteo is more than just a coffee shop though, one of their stores (their biggest) in Gothenburg is also a bakery and the place where they roast and ship their coffee. They also have courses in making leaven and various barista courses and some coffee tasting.
