Quality, since 1951.
It the last century, Domenico and Mario Cartapani decided to launch their business under the name "Costarica Caffè dei F.lli Cartapani", abandoning the name of the Central American country after just over a year to keep only the surname. A used roaster, a grinder, retail sales, the first bicycle deliveries. Like all Made in Italy excellences, Caffè Cartapani’s history, right from the start, is a choice inspired by selection, search for goodness and the will to make a difference in terms of superior high quality.
