The Passion Behind Specialty Cafetiere: Paolo and Mauro's Journey:

Specialty Cafetiere is the brainchild of Paolo Giovinazzo, a seasoned 20-year coffee roaster and director of Caffè Cannizzaro in southern Italy. Paolo's dedication to the art of coffee is matched by Mauro Laruffa, a self-proclaimed coffee lover whose journey with this aromatic beverage began in 2015 when he moved to London. Their combined passion and innovative ideas brought Specialty Cafetiere to life in 2019.

A Journey into Specialty Coffee:

Mauro's love for coffee grew unexpectedly in 2015, marking a transition from a life buried in paperwork to the unpredictable world of coffee. He invites you to join him on a journey where life and coffee share the same unpredictability. Paolo, on the other hand, developed a special bond with coffee at the age of 10, climbing mountains of jute bags filled with green coffee. Now, after 20 years, he continues to be an integral part of this exciting project.
