The story of Caffe Torelli by Marco Costa starts in Parma, the gastronomic capital of Italy, with the Costa family. When they migrated to England in the 1960’s, the family brought their miscela (blend) with them, going on to found a coffee empire now known throughout the world.
Marco Costa, (the son of co-founder Sergio), is a successful entrepreneur and restauranteur in his own right. Understandably, coffee is in his blood, and Marco is dedicated to conserving the original family miscela, (Perla Bianca), which he uses in his own restaurants and has sold to a select group of foodservice customers.
As demand for Perla Bianca increased, Marco searched for a roastery which could deliver the quality, quantity and consistency he required to meet demand whilst staying true to the heritage of the original blend. Caffe Torelli by Marco Costa is now produced in a state of the art, carbon-neutral UK facility.
Marco told us: ‘I am delighted that Caffe Torelli by Marco Costa will now be more widely available. It is very exciting to be able to offer a true Italian Heritage Blend, whilst minimising environmental impact by reducing Food Miles and Carbon Emissions’.
