The Barista Story

Years of coffee knowledge, passion and expertise come together to create Piacetto, a truly excellent and sustainably produced coffee. Piacetto coffee blends are created by and for the discerning barista, with a passion for quality.

The name for Piacetto comes from the Italian word ‘Piacere’ meaning ‘a small moment of joy or pleasure’. It is known as La Selezione Barista – the Barista’s Choice.

Drinking a cup of delicious Piacetto coffee is like being transported to a quiet coffee shop in Italy away from the crowds. A place perhaps where the locals go to relax and savour the elegant taste profile of this delicious coffee.


Created by baristas, for baristas


Piacetto follows the Italian principle of the 4 M’s – perfecting the process at each of these points ensures Piacetto quality in every cup.

  • – La Miscela (the blend)
  • – La Macchina (the machine)
  • – Il Macinacaffe (the coffee grinder)
  • – La Mano (The hand of the barista)

The flavour journey from Piacetto Supremo Espresso to Caffe Crema is like the journey from the metropolitan city of Milan to the romantic city of Florence. Milan, like the espresso blend, is progressive and bold; a statement for the palate, while Florence, like the Arabica, is delicate and aromatic, with many hidden notes to discover. Both cities have a strong history and passion for producing great coffee.

An exceptional coffee that is rich, mellow and aromatic with a roasted taste.
