From history to his story. When we remember the founder of Valentino Caffè, we like to tell the story as if it were a fairytale: a dream that breathed life into a small coffee shop, a dream which then grew into the Valentino Caffè we know and love today.
I love the foam of an espresso coffee when it lingers on the tongue. The story of an espresso that’s sweetly strong and creamy. I love it in a jacket and tie, in casual clothes or even in pajamas and slippers.
Not just Espresso and not just Cappuccino. Lots of original and traditional recipes, all of them delicious, to choose from our menu and enjoy at the bar. A touch of elegance and the chance to offer customers a variety of flavours, for the bars who choose the Valentino Caffè product line.
In a series of features, a fine art photographer depicts the wonderful world of bars and coffee shops. In a personal journey around Valentino Caffè bars, he travels around an itinerary of fascinating places to build a unique collection of photographs. Concept and photos by Marcello Moscara. You can suggest your bar as a setting and invite him to visit. First stop: Matera, European Capital of Culture.
Officially, we have been making coffee since 1953. But the family entered the trade even earlier. It all began towards the end of the war, when Salvatore Montefrancesco, our paternal grandfather, began roasting coffee to supply to the Allied troops. Then in 1953, while still young men, having grown up among coffee beans and stories of roasting and blending, Gaetano and Antonio Egidio transformed their father’s vision into a business. There was still no name. They found one in their grandmother’s winning surname: Valentino.
Our sales office in the heart of Europe is the jewel in the crown of the sales division, with a warehouse that is always well supplied, excellent product quality control and a network of agents who call it their base. From here, Valentino Caffè’s high-quality Italian espresso travels across Europe and the very Italian art of coffee flies the “Made in Italy” flag.
24 hours a day, 7 days a week: close to our customers wherever they are. Because to make a high quality espresso coffee you need three things: a good blend, a good master coffee-maker and an espresso machine that always works perfectly. With our passion for quality, we have always focused on ensuring perfection right down to this final link in the production chain.
Enhancing the taste of a good coffee with elegant details: arty cups, collector’s tins, designer clocks, and fine art photographs in signed, numbered collector’s prints. To enter the world of Valentino Caffè is also to live, taste and share your passion for art and culture, made up of so many little things. Because style, as we all know, is about the details.
A story in images. The most significant moments in the life of our “Master Coffee-Makers” school are preserved in albums in this archive: with the people who join us in creating new stories every day to fill the world of Valentino Caffè.
