“The year is 1898. In Florence Italy, near the famous Church of Orsanmichele, in Via De’ Lamberti, in the heart of Florence, is a stand-up Caffé, the first in Italy. Amongst the antique brass, mirrors and ornate woodwork, a delicious aroma fills the air. The aroma, and unique flavor of this unrivalled coffee from this caffé is one which every Florentine remembers in their heart and palate. This is the birthplace of Manaresi coffee.
Today, Manaresi continues the same tradition as it has since 1898. With the same meticulous attention to detail, choosing the highest quality coffee beans in the world, to create the best coffees. Roasting the beans, the old artisanal way, with devoted care to one small batch at a time, under strict human control and experience that no machine can duplicate. Maintaining over a century of superior quality and flavor to create an authentic Italian espresso.
The only changes to Manaresi coffee in over 120 years is the packaging which is used to preserve the flavor, and the fact that one no longer need to travel all the way to Florence, Italy to enjoy the unmatched flavor of Manaresi coffee.”
