Until now, their brand has never been available in the U.S. and we are so excited to be able to bring you this authentic representation of Italian coffee culture.
When we attended the Trieste Espresso Expo in October 2018, this was one of the roasters we fell in love with...their delicious and beautifully packaged caffè, kind staff and historic family business.
We were lucky enough to visit their torrefazione (roasting factory) during our November 2019 trip and learned so much more about their history and roasting process...fascinating!
San Giusto says:
Sweet, delicate and extraordinarily aromatic: blend of the finest quality Arabica coffee from Brazil, Central America and Ethiopia. Light body, fruity and floral notes, with a marked acidity. Mixture with low caffeine content, characteristic of Arabica coffees.
Founded in 1949 by Libero Petronio, Torrefazione Caffè San Giusto is the historic Trieste-based company which is still owned by the family more than 70 years later. San Giusto is the patron saint of Trieste, known as 'la città del caffe' or the city of coffee.
