AN INDISSOLUBLE
BOND

Dinicaffè offers a unique mix of flavours, fragrances and textures: its coffee bean is not only a fruit of a coffee plant, but it is also a result of a careful and strict process that initially takes place on the other side of the world and ends at Dinicaffè coffee roastery in Florence, the city that has always hosted and inspired the company’s work from the very beginning.

FLORENCE: A CAPITAL
OF EXCELLENCE

Florence preserves its history while leaving its own charm unchanged. It represents a point of reference and an ambassador of Italian excellence, not only in the historical-cultural field, but also in other sectors, from craftsmanship to coffee roasting.

OUR HISTORY

A coffee origins journey that dates back
to more than 80 years ago.

1939

Dinicaffè was founded in Florence thanks to an idea of Alberto Dini who decided to transform his great passion for coffee into something bigger, after his ten years’ experience concerning colonial products. He created his coffee roastery in the historic centre of Florence to exalt both craftsmanship and the quality products without forgetting about the strong relationship with the territory and the city.

1966

Dinicaffè activity continues and grows over the years by producing high quality coffee that became popular thanks to its taste and aroma. In 1966 Alberto Dini transformed an old furnace located in Via Bastioni into the the new and current Dinicaffè location in Florence, after a terrible flood that completely destroyed both the city and the old location.

1980 - 1996

Dinicaffè pathway to excellence continued through the ‘80s when Alberto’s daughters, Elisabetta and Laura took the lead of the company. In 1996 they founded CSC, a Certified Specialty Coffee Association together with some Italian coffee roasters: an organization created to protect the quality of coffee and its full traceability from the plantation into the cup.

2010 - up to now

Dinicaffè corporate values depend on Elisabetta’s daughters, Serena and Benedetta who have grown up sharing their passion for coffee that passed down through three generations. Dinicaffè has never changed its nature, its values and its city and it produces day by day a superior quality coffee, a Florence excellence.

She was born in Florence in 1981 and she graduated at IED Milan European Institute of Design. She joined the family company in 2010 in order to manage and define Dinicaffè image and communication.

She started learning “tips and tricks” and she became more and more passionate about the world of coffee. Together with her sister Benedetta, she has travelled and visited the Coffee Bean Belt in order to discover the places and the companies where coffee has its own origins: Honduras, India, Brazil, Guatemala, Costa Rica and Ethiopia.

Back in Italy, from 2018, she takes care of Dinicaffè’s product, sales and marketing. In 2019 she received “The Arabica Q-grader” title (coffee taster), a special certification in order to better know and understand every single aspect of coffee, from the plantation into the cup.

Benedetta

When she joined the company again in 2012, she started taking some positions linked to her background, such as finance, management control, production and logistics.

In 2018 her aunt unfortunately died and she began to manage her business together with her sister Serena enhancing the values of excellence and quality that have characterized Dinicaffè during its 80-year history.
