In Porto, Portugal in 1947, Vicente Peres established "Sociedade Importadora de Cafés Lda." (Coffee Importing Company Ltd.) - aka, SICAL. They operated as a small company focused on distribution for a number of years until establishing their own roasting operations in 1956. Growing from there, they became the first coffee company in Portugal to advertise. After investing in another roasting plan in 1985, they became one of the first coffee roasters to emphasize the importance of coffee origins to consumers.

Nestlé acquired SICAL in 1987. Since then, they have established a number of branded and owned-and-operated cafés in Portugal and remain one of its more popular brands. It was introduced in South Africa in 2005.
