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 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 superior quality of the Vergnano blends is born from an extraordinary process, from the choice of raw materials to production.
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.
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.
