Our history

A lot goes into each cup of coffee we produce. And behind it all is a long process beginning with the selection of the finest raw materials, followed by sophisticated roasting processes and culminating in the best equipment and training we can offer our baristas.

Because behind every cup are 130 years of history and love for coffee. And a single purpose – ensuring that every cup of coffee at a Costadoro coffee bar offers a unique, pleasant and memorable experience.
