Caffe Saccaria, one of Italy’s oldest established coffee businesses.
Like most of our producers, Saccaria have a great and well documented story of how their business began: on 17th August 1806, a barchetto loaded with coffee and pepper dropped anchor in the then free-trade port of Senigallia. The men in the boat were the forefathers of the families that, in 1882, started the Saccaria coffee importing and roasting business.
The factory is filled with the delicious smell of fresh coffee, from the store filled with hessian sacks of fresh beans from South America, India and Africa, to the roasting rooms where the beans are gently toasted at 200ºC for 15 minutes, to the blending and packing room, where the coffee is snuggled into its distinctive Saccaria branded packs. Saccaria invites you in Senigallia to tour their small factory and, of course, taste a cup or two. (thanks to: http://justsoitalian.wordpress.com)
