Delta Cafés is a Portuguese coffee roasting and packing company headquartered in Campo Maior, Alentejo. The company was founded in 1961 and is one of the market leaders in the Iberian Peninsula. The company belongs to Grupo Nabeiro, the conglomerate owned by its founder Rui Nabeiro, which includes agribusiness, agriculture, real estate, hotels, and other services.
Delta Cafés was founded by Rui Nabeiro in 1961 in the village of Campo Maior, Alentejo in a small 50-metre warehouse, which could only handle two 30 kg roasters. In 1998, the Nabeiro/Delta Cafés Group was restructured and gave rise to 22 companies organised into strategic areas, with a turnover of approximately €160 million. In the first decade of the 2000s, it became the market leader for coffee in Portugal, with a market share of 38%. It has 28,000 direct retail clients (among the largest of which is Sonae, a leading Portuguese retailer) and 1,839 employees. Towards the end of the decade, Delta Cafés launched its own espresso products, Delta Q, based on a branded system of single-serving "capsules" containing ground coffee and rooibos tea, as well as specialised machines to brew espresso coffee using the capsules in a similar way to that of the Nestlé Nespresso system
