Caffe Torelli by Marco Costa


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’.

29/10/18 Travel Mugs & Travel Presses

With all the recent news about protecting the environment and saving money, it seems like the message is really getting through about the big problem with single use plastic. 99% of disposable coffee cups are not recyclable and each minute landfill sites take thousands of these cups every day in the UK alone.


The best quick fix for consumers has to be the reusable cup that you can take to work. All coffee outlets will now fill up your own personal travel mug instead of using their own disposable cups. Waitrose aims to phase out disposable cups and serves free coffee to any customers who bring in their own reusable cup and there are plenty of campaigns urging people to buy their own coffee cup or mug an dtake it with them to the office.


Any model of cup available is good for the planet if you plan to reuse it, so now is the best time to invest in your own reusable mug. We stock a wide range of Bodum & Melitta Travel Mugs in a variety of colours and sizes and for those of you who may need more than one cup for your morning pick me up, the Bodum Travel Press might be the right choice, it’s a coffee press and a portable cup in one!
