The splendor of Italian Coffee
Lucaffe started as a small artisan coffee roaster and has grown over the last 20 years to be a significant supplier of coffee in Italy, and now the world. Retaining the care that only an artisan can supply and taking an active interest in each aspect of the roasting process, Lucaffe controls the growing of the bean to flavour at the cup.
The Lucaffe Coffee Roasting Company was founded in 1996 on the shores of Lake Garda at Padenghe sul Garda by Gian Luca Venturelli. Years at university studying coffee then working with growers in South America, nurtured the passion and intensity with which Gian Luca developed his coffee philosophy. The company grew rapidly and expanded further in 2004, moving to its new headquarters at Carpenedolo (Brescia).
