Caffe Vergnano is an Italian company, based in Torino, with a long and prestigious history in producing exceptional quality roasted coffee. Founded in 1882, when Domenico Vergnano, forefather of the present family, established his business opening a small grocery in the medieval city of Chieri situated at the foot of the hills surrounding Turin. The shop soon started to specialize in the roasting and sale of coffee, defining the Vergnano family's true vocation. A vocation nourished by courageous decisions, such as the purchase in the 30's of a coffee plantation in Kenya. In Italy, business grew rapidly with the establishment of the first three warehouses in Turin, Alba, and Chierie. Vergnano Espresso is a perfect mix of tradition and innovation with an emphasis and value placed on quality.
