From passion to concept

A close group of friends and entrepreneurs, over a few coffee sessions, were observing the rapidly expanding “Nespresso” market. At the time, the consumer market for coffee was restricted to a closed system by major commercial brands.

A close group of friends and entrepreneurs, over a few coffee sessions, were observing the rapidly expanding “Nespresso” market. At the time, the consumer market for coffee was restricted to a closed system by major commercial brands.

However, this meant that hundreds of independent Italian coffee roasters were bypassed and not part of the large-scale distribution chain.

Seeing an opportunity, the group decided to comb through Italy to search for these coffee artisans, to make their products compatible with the commercial machines, thereby bringing what was once inaccessible to the coffee-loving public.

101CAFFE’ was thus launched in 2011. It is today a retail and online store specialising in the sale of premium coffee in all forms. Pods, capsules, beans and ground, all from the best Italian roasting companies, selected region by region to bring you all the quality and tradition of Made in Italy craftmanship.

Our Quality Engagement

Quality coffee nothing more!

All our coffees are guaranteed without preservatives or taste enhancers. We choose artisan roasteries from North to South of Italy and their best coffee beans; we create exclusive unique premium coffee blends for our customers, respecting the tradition of local recipes and roasting methods of that territory.

Coffee freshness guaranteed

All our coffees are hermetically sealed to preserve the freshness and quality of the coffee from the harmful effects of air, light and moisture. Our coffees have a eighteen-month shelf life starting from the moment they are produced. This means the quality, the aromas and the taste remain optimal for no less than eighteen months. The product remains safe for consumption once past this date. You can find that date printed on each packet of coffee.
