La Fabrica is a cycle cafe in the heart of Girona, merging the passions of its founders, husband and wife Christian and Amber, their vision and heart. Amber and Christian moved to Spain over 12 years ago when the promising career of a professional cyclist was offered to Christian in Girona. Starting as a Stagiaire, he was able to work his way to the top tier of the peloton, riding in races he had only dreamed of as a child. World Championships, The Classics in Europe to the National Championships in Canada… he was riding them all. While Amber was happy to support him, travel and live an enjoyable life of early retirement, she knew Christian’s cycling career was only going to be a long journey. So she decided to follow her dream of opening a a small, specialty coffee shop in their adopted hometown of Girona. After just 2 years, they were the owners of 3 incredible businesses at the forefront of cycling and coffee culture in Spain. In this episode you’ll hear the incredible story behind La Fabrica, Christian's professional cycling career, the journey to building Girona's only in-house coffee roasters, Espresso Mafia, and luxury bicycle shop, The Service Course.
