The new stand, designed by the Florentine architect Nicolò Bernardini, celebrates two of the brand’s strengths: sustainability and its Tuscan soul. A large wall, 10 meters long and 4 meters high, in coarse wood and enriched by some vertical greens, i.e. lichens’ panels alternating with the wooden ones, create a “natural” effect.

On the wall, the slogan “We roast in the heart of Tuscany” and a photograph of the panorama from Civitella Val di Chiana, small town in the province of Arezzo, are a clear reminder to the strong attachments of this brand to its Tuscan origins.

The company, founded in Arezzo in 1950, and directed by Patrick Hoffer, exports its products in 65 countries worldwide, conjugating its artisanal experience of the Made in Tuscany, thanks to the perfect synergy between its workers, to an international vocation following also the latest consumer trends.

Thanks to the cardboard packaging, the whole packet can now be completely recycled.

One of the other novel products presented is the brand new “Riserva Silvano Corsini”, specialty coffee from organic agriculture, dedicated exclusively to the Horeca market. This product combines tradition with the brand’s present and future: it is in fact inspired by the valuesof Silvano Corsini, founder of the company, who throughout the years has always promoted the importance of working quality products, respecting the environment and the people.

The new blend is born also from the synergy and research of the two coffee experts and Corsini ambassadors Francesco Sanapo, Italian coffee taster champion 2019 and world-renowned barista champion, and Michele Anedotti, Italian roasting champion 2019.

The Riserva Silvano Corsini is also a perfect example of our direct relationships with the local coffee producers in the countries of origin, relationships that allow us to exert a bigger quality control on the produce from fruit to cup.
