THE ROASTERy

The art of Mario Miconi for the products of Caffè Italia

Caffè Italia blends are special recipes realized with varieties carefully selected to ensure only the finest quality is processed. The excellence of the raw materials is married with the art and mastery of the roaster who refines each product as if it was a haute cuisine recipe, giving his own artistic touch to each creation.

Every Caffè Italia product is the fruit of Master Roaster Mario Miconi’s  knowledge. He is a professional with agricultural DNA, with University education in history and philosophy. In 2006 he started  his educational journey with the best SCAE educators.

In 2014 Miconi ranks first in the selection of the Italian Roasting Championship held in Lecce. In 2015 he is a finalist in the Italian Cup tasting championship. He qualified third also in 2015 and 2016 Italian Roasting Championship, held in Bergamo and Rimini.
