Passalacqua coffee

Passalacqua

It all began in 1948, after the war, with a nation adrift and tremendous poverty. In order to feed his family, grandfather Samuel worked as a trade representative, while his three sons Biagio, Yor Armando and Emilio, young and full of enthusiasm, bravely faced post-war labour shortage. Then came an opportunity: buying an old machine that roasted 5 kg of coffee every twenty minutes and starting a new business.
Today, coffee arriving from Colombia, Brazil, Ethiopia, Java, Vietnam, etc. reaches the Passalacqua roasting plant and then goes all over the world. The history of the family business is preserving the Neapolitan coffee tradition for over 70 years!
