We travel to Italy a couple of times every year for work, (tough I know!). There is a serious business side to our trips to Italy, however, travelling there isn’t a difficult task. The beautiful food, people and scenery are all steeped in history. History permeates everything in Italy. Every view takes in centuries of experiences and every building is a catalogue of stories. Hovering over these physical histories are the traditions that come with thousands of years of creating food and wine and serving it in an inclusive simple atmosphere. Even their wine stores are superb, the attached picture was taken in Verona last year. Quite simply, Italy = Delicious.
We love bringing a little of those traditions to you here in Australia. Our master artisan roaster, and founder of Lucaffe, is Gian Luca Venturelli. The Venturelli family have a long history in the food industry in Northern Italy and that passion and dedication to perfecting our coffee is evident every day. On a recent trip we discovered the Venturelli Olive oils, Blasamic vinegars and their wines from the Veneto region. So keep an eye out for these coming soon to our range.
