Amigos. The Family Of Coffee.
People are more important than numbers: the underlying principle has helped Amigos Caffè to establish a company capable not only of offering excellent products to its customers but also extensive experience made of business relations, technical competence, love for coffee and for the job. Amigos Caffè is the brand name chosen to communicate straightforwardness and joy: the same feelings people get when they enjoy a truly Italian espresso coffee.
The first premises of Amigos Caffè consisted of a small warehouse of 40 mq in the suburbs of Trieste. Severino Mingardi, his wife Maria and an old 30 kg roasting machine set up a Project which today makes the family proud, and that extends beyond national borders all over Europe, producing and exporting high quality Italian coffee.
Today, Amigos Caffè plants cover a surface area of 11,000 mq and boast modern, cutting-edge equipment capable of producing 1,600 Kg of coffee per hour. With the current production volumes, Amigos can serve the Trieste market as well as the markets of Central and Eastern Europe and offer the option of toll manufacturing. What has never changed is the employees’ love for coffee, a love, which Arianna Mingardi – currently at the helm of the company – is striving to keep alive and to hand over to the next generation.
Arianna Mingardi has taken over from her father and founder of the company Severino Mingardi. The thought of him led her to create a new Riserva blend – the Mingardi S blend, a mixture of superior coffees, releasing intense aromas of cocoa, crunchy almond and dried fruit from the very first sip to conclude with a captivating smell of orange marmalade. The persistent prolonged aftertaste is enhanced by hints of almond and raw citrus fruit honey. The Mingardi S Riserva blend enables us to increase our creative capacity and to anticipate the tastes of those who love our coffee.
Next to the Riserva The Mingardi S, there are 10 different coffee blends with different percentages of Arabica and Robusta coffee beans: an appropriate selection of raw materials which underlies the success of Amigos Caffè. Those 10 coffee blends recipes were created specifically for people who will taste them. In this way Amigos Caffè can meet every taste: some people look for an intense and full-bodied flavour, others enjoy a more delicate taste, not to speak of the Mingardi S blend, which is really top of the line with its harmonic and balanced taste, enjoyment at its best.
