Celebrate 140 years of Caffè Vergnano!

Caffè Vergnano

Founded in 1882 by Domenico Vergnano as a small workshop, Caffè Vergnano is Italy’s oldest coffee roasting company. Since its origins as a small shop in Chieri — a town at the foot of the hills in Torino, Piemonte — the company has honored tradition, producing high-quality coffee using the slow roasting method. Caffè Vergnano is still run by the Vergnano family to this day, fueled by passion and dedication to the art of coffee production.

This year, Caffè Vergnano is celebrating a very special anniversary — 140 years! Learn more about Caffè Vergnano's dedication to embracing the coffee ritual, and sharing it with the world below.

EMBRACING TRADITION FOR 140 YEARS

Caffè Vergnano specializes in the selection and roasting of green coffee, and values the careful selection of every bean. Every day, the team grinds, roasts, tastes and tests their coffee, perfecting recipes using traditional techniques inherited from the company's ancestors.

Coffee beans must be roasted to perfection, made possible by the process of slow roasting — a traditional method that differs from industrial processes, and results in the best possible even cooking. Slow roasting methods, as opposed to turbo toasting, are what gives Caffè Vergnano an evenly balanced roast! Each origin is roasted separately to perfection, the most delicate stage in coffee production, to accentuate the full aroma and the quality of each bean.
