Q&A with Hanne & David Lassgard - Founders!

Feb 09, 2024
  1. Where do you live?
For the past 1.5 years, we've been living in Medellin, Colombia. Before that, we spent a few years in a house in the countryside, on the Österlen. It was idyllic with a sea view. And before that, we lived in an apartment in Östermalm. We often joke and say we moved from Malmen to Halmen to Palmen.

2. Summer, autumn, winter, or spring, which do you prefer?

Medellin is known as the "Ciudad de la Eterna Primavera," The City of Eternal Spring. We're not talking about Swedish spring; it's more like Swedish summer all year round.

But, since we've chosen to move here, we prefer warm weather, and Medellin's climate is the best we've ever experienced. It's warm but not too hot. You can wear jeans and a t-shirt even when it's 27 degrees. The weather varies; it can be cooler at times, and in the evenings, it's nice to throw on a blazer. However, sometimes we miss the fall in Sweden.

3. Are you addicted to anything?

Coffee. We work with coffee and are addicted to high-quality coffee that tastes good and doesn't harm our planet. Despite our addiction, we drink a maximum of two cups a day, and we never waste coffee.

4. Name three things people might not know about you?

- In addition to being a Coffee Entrepreneur, David is also a Tech Entrepreneur and has had companies in Silicon Valley for over 10 years.
- Hanne is trained as a project manager in Film & TV, which she worked with for 7 years, and holds a degree in Social Work.
- We don't drink alcohol and haven't for five years.

5. Where in the world would you like to be right now?

Right here, at our kitchen island in Envigado. We love our everyday life in Colombia and wouldn't want to trade it for anything else!

6. What have you done today?

We've packed lunch boxes for the kids, dropped them off with the driver who takes them to preschool, had a workout with our personal trainer, enjoyed our morning coffee, had breakfast, had a meeting with our designer, and outlined a brand new strategy for our upcoming project launching this spring!

7. Are you morning or evening people?

When we first met, Hanne was a morning person, and David was an evening person. After two kids, we've both become morning people and go to bed no later than 22:00 since both our children wake up at 06:00 every day.

8. Where were you born and where did you grow up?

Hanne was born in Gävle and grew up in Gävle.
David was born in Medellin and grew up in Gothenburg.
