Company

A family before being a company

Our story begins in 1948, spanning four generations.
In the post-war period, during his journey to South America, grandfather Bartolomeo Camardo becomes interested in coffee culture.
Full of enthusiasm and passion, he gets back to Italy and opens a coffee shop in Campo Marzio street in Rome.

But he dreams of going back to his homeland: the Molise region, in Southern Italy, with the aim of creating a future for his family and his land.
