It was a casual encounter, exactly the type that happens in the best love stories, that led to the founding of Morandini Coffee Roasting. A meeting which, at the end of the sixties, in a country which was lifting its head again after the second World War, marked a change in the life of the young Romolo Morandini and his descendants.
A trip to Brescia with his father, a baker, led him to meet the owner of a small shop on Corso Garibaldi. There, in that room infused with the smell of roasted coffee, Romolo decided that his future would be fragrant with coffee.
This decision soon became reality when Romolo set up his first roasting laboratory under his house, and began an adventure in the world of coffee that continues today. The first precious beans from America that arrived in the Val Camonica entered the Victoria 5kg roaster, which today is displayed with pride to visitors.
It was the beginning of an adventure that Pietro and Vigilio, Romolo’s two sons, took over from their father in 1991, carrying on the same authentic dedication, running the firm with enthusiasm, commitment and a serious work ethic, obtaining important recognitions and international titles.
