in 1979 the Segafredo family, well-known for their time-honoured tradition in the italian coffee sector, established the Essse Caffè brand in Bologna.
It was no accident that Essse was spelled with a triple S, with the three S's standing for "Scienza, Sapienza, Specializzazione" (Science, Knowledge, Specialisation), the three values that sum up the Essse philosophy, founded on experience and committed to innovation, and expressed through the consistency of the coffee blends and a constant quest for the best organoleptic properties. Essse caffe mission has always been to deliver top quality products. This is why, right from the start, Essse relied on the scientific support of the Departments of Agricultural Science of the Universities of Bologna, Cesena, and Foggia, a collaboration that continues to this days. Over the last forty years Essse caffe has become leaders in the coffee industry in Italy , with a knowledge base that ranges from fresh coffee beans to the coffee in cup, from roasting to packaging, from professional equipment to espresso coffee-making.
Today, Essse Caffè is a successful brand, well-known in Italy and increasingly established abroad, an acknowledged guarantee for quality. In 2019, Essse Caffe was among the top (5) five, Italian Coffee Roasters in the Horeca Market. Essse Caffe is now operating on a global scale in over (60) sixty worldwide countries.
