In the beginning, our founder Mauro Cipolla would meticulously taste and blend the best coffee varietals, tinkering with the wood-fired roaster he brought from his native Italy, to achieve perfection in the finished cup. Since those early days, Caffé D’arte has progressed to supplying a full spectrum of blends and coffee-related services to discerning palates around the world. Today, Caffé D’arte provides not only distinctive coffees roasted in the style of the various regions of Italy but also the warmth and uniqueness of traditional Italian culture.
Before Mauro began Caffé D’arte, an award-winning Seattle based coffee roaster with an international reputation for quality, he started his apprenticeship in Naples, Italy under the demanding eye of a fourth generation master roaster. His insight into the science and art of coffee roasting and espresso blending have been the cornerstone of our company, founded on the traditional Italian values of craftsmanship and quality.
