It was 1883 when Antonio Pascucci, the son of two weavers, decided to devote himself to trade, becoming a small manufacturer. In 1935 Mario Pascucci, involved in the continuation of his father’s work, opened the first family shop in Monte Cerignone.
In the post-war period, Dino Pascucci, Mario’s brother, opened his own coffee bar in Monte Cerignone and installed the first espresso coffee machine. His specialties are coffee and sorbets. Later on, in 1963, Alberto Pascucci installed the indirect-fire coffee roaster in order to have a homogeneous roasting operation so to obtain espresso coffee.
In 1975 Caffè Pascucci gave itself up to espresso coffee, abandoning the food distribution and setting up the project “only top-quality coffee”. The extra bar mild blend was created from the union of natural Arabica and Robusta and Arabica washed coffee. Then, the golden blend, composed of sweet and aromatic coffee, which innovated the taste of the espresso coffee.
In the Nineties the family decided to start up and repeat the experience gained in the coffee bar sector according to the traditional model, through design and research in order to promote the development of coffee stores showing the brand Pascucci.
In 2000 they inaugurated the pilot centre CAFFÈ PASCUCCI SHOP: a single brand, replicable sales point. In the same year, they also set up a project for a new plant intended to reach the best quality; the location isstill the town of Monte Cerignone, because its specific climate keeps the raw coffee moisture stable. Later on, the Pascucci roasting system (with sound control) was patented.
In 2006 the Chamber of Commerce awarded a prize to Alberto Pascucci as he helped the family company to reach the winning post in terms of qualitative excellence.
Pascucci’s passion for quality has remained throughout its centennial life, it being one of the leading motivators for the brand and the its staff. The passion of the coffeworkers, beginning form the farmers harvesting raw beans to the roasters at the final steps of the process can be tasted in every cup, marking the difference that makes Pascucci the Italian Superior coffee.
