200 YEARS OF COFFEE PASSION
The trading company “Giuseppe Molinari”, successful in the food sector, was formed in 1804 and became a supplier to the Savoia house in 1880 under the name “Ditta Fratelli Molinari” [the Molinari Brothers company]. Molinari vinegar began to acquire prestige winning numerous international awards in this period also.
In 1911, on the wake of other leading Cafes opening in other cities (“Florian” in Venice or “Caffè Greco” in Rome), the family opened “Bar Molinari”, which became a meeting place for the entire city and a meeting place for artists and intellectuals, in the heart of Modena.
In 1944, the founder Giuseppe and his sons Alberto and Emilio began roasting coffee at the facilities on Via Rismondo in the middle of the historical center. As business activities grew, roasting then moved to via Modonella and finally transferred to Via Fanti, where the company changed its corporate structure to become “Caffè Molinari S.p.A.”
New research projects into new packaging technologies began on Via Fanti and coffee continued to be processed as always with love and passion, in ceaseless pursuit of excellent quality.
Combining quality with the new packaging technologies, Caffè Molinari soon became a leading company in the coffee business in both the domestic and world markets.
Caffè Molinari currently carries out its roasting activity at the brand new facilities on Via Francia 20.
Bar Molinari, located in the heart of the city of Modena, began roasting coffee on its own in 1911. The source of our success is therefore the passion, attentiveness, dedication and the high-quality that sets our artisan food products apart from others. Today, more than hundred years later – although utilizing the most modern industrial technology – we continue and, and will continue, to preserve that maniacal artisan devotion. Caffè Molinari: modern artisan coffee industry.
Our end purpose, the reason why we exist, now more than ever, is to satisfy the customer 100%. Caffè Molinari is synonymous with quality, excellence, technology, and historical passion associated with the world of coffee in more than 60 countries throughout the world.
