Quality coffee since 1905
A special coffee
Danesi is tradition, Danesi is family.
For four generations we have been promoting the quality and culture of Italian Espresso around the world.
1905, the first generation
Alfredo Danesi. From trade to coffee emporium
Alfredo, a profound connoisseur and conservator of secret blends, begins spreading the culture of Italian espresso in the capital and throughout Italy.
It is 1905 and the capital’s emporium becomes a reference point for its citizens.
1933, the second generation
Giovanni Danesi, coffee popularizer
With the death of Alfredo Danesi in 1933, his son Giovanni, known as Nino, carries on his father’s activity as a taster and popularizer of Espresso coffee.
Giovanni promotes the growth of the company and develops a sales network of Danesi brand products in public establishments (Ho.Re.Ca.).
1960s, the third generation
Export commences with Roberto and Alfredo Danesi
With the relocation of the roasting plant to the Magliana area, Roberto and Alfredo Danesi join their father Giovanni in the management of the company, offering a more modern and industrial twist to the company management.
Towards the first half of the 1970s, Roberto and Alfredo begin exporting the coffee abroad, which will bring the brand to over 60 countries around the world.
In 1973, under Roberto’s pressure, the first foreign Danesi office opens in Atlanta, followed by offices in New York, Los Angeles and Miami.
