Passion for coffee since 1882
Caffè Vergnano, an ancient Piedmont coffee-maker, has been led by the Vergnano family for four generations, looking towards the future focussing on creativity, innovation and quality.
A Success made in Italy
A company with a long, prestigious history, Caffè Vergnano was founded in 1882. It started as a small apothecary in Chieri, a small town at the foot of the Turin hills, a business set up by the current owners’ grandfather of the company: Domenico Vergnano.
The true vocation of the Vergnano family was soon very clear: in a few years the small shop mastered all the secrets of coffee-making and selling. The activity grew quickly and the first three Italian warehouses were opened in Turin, Alba and Chieri. But the true leap forward happened in the 1930s and was the result of a courageous choice: the purchase of a coffee-producing farm in Kenya.
The company is looking towards the future with serenity, standing strong on its 13,500 square metre factory and 18 automated production lines. It ranks Italy’s sixth company in retail market, with an Italian presence in 19 regions with over 4,500 HORECA clients, and more than 70 coffee shops 1882 in 19 countries throughout the world. Furthermore, it successfully exports to more than 80 countries.
Our coffee: a perfect blend of tradition and innovation
The superior quality of the Vergnano blends is born from an extraordinary process, from the choice of raw materials to production.
The meticulous selection of the best raw materials
Caffè Vergnano maintains the merits of a company faithful to the best traditions while, at the same time, being one of the most dynamic and avant-garde manufacturers.
Slow, traditional roasting
The roasting is the most delicate moment of the coffee working process, because the taste concentration and flavour of the beans depends on the exact level of roasting. This delicate stage is still today carried out by Caffè Vergnano following traditional methods.
Quality is our company’s top value
Caffè Vergnano has taken on the new World Environmental Policies because improving Environmental Quality means Better Quality of human life.
