Top Made in Italy Coffee Equipment

 

Below is the best grinder around, in our opinion.

The new  features make it unique. It could seem complex to some but they made it perfect and simple for you.

-> Coffee doses are calibrated and weighted in the grinder

-> A radio waves based system (ever heard of RFID?) will automatically recognise if you need a single or the double espresso dose. When technology improves our work and saves us time and effort, ah!

 

The best coffee would be ruined by poor grinding. Fiorenzato grinders have micrometric precision and all the sensors you need to focus on the most important thing:  your cup of coffee.

GOOD FOOD ETC, Glasgow

There are different opinions on what well-being is and what it is healthy.

For us the main contributor to health is food. Good food means good health.

Eating well has also different meanings to different people. In our opinion, it doesn’t necessarily mean avoiding certain kinds of food like pasta or meat. Good food is genuine, artisanal, with no artificial ingredients. Eating well to us is varying the good food you eat everyday.

The key here though is finding the good food. There is the place in Glasgow where you will find the good food everyday, and everyday different and varied, not only in terms of nutrient but also cuisine. East meets West in ETC. One day lunch special could be Italian meatball panini, the next day an authentic Thai dish.

You will find food that you might have not tasted before (have you tried their Sicilian arancini? Yum), and enjoy some familiar food: everything made with selected ingredients, fresh every day.

They even make their sausages! From the oil to the flour to the butter to the cheese; from A to Z, everything is the best quality and expressed at its best with great cooking.

The variety of cakes is superb, with some fixed choices like brownies, caramel shortcake or almond and blueberry cake, and some maybe especially baked for the day.

For those looking for gluten free treats, they often make gluten free or vegan cakes, and their hot chocolate is also gluten free in a classic, chilli or amaretto flavour.

Whatever good food means to you, We are pretty sure you will find it in E.T.C. Cafe.

Celebrating International Coffee Day with the story of its origins

Happy International Coffee Day!

To celebrate this great day we thought we would share a story with you. Of course it involves our beloved coffee roaster!

Caffé del Doge is unique in the world, and we owe this to their inherited secrets of Venetian Roasting tradition, the oldest and most refined coffee roasting method in Italy .

Italian coffee is renowned to be heavily roasted, but funny enough, when everything started in Venice back in the 1700 (The Doge was the lord of Venice at the times of Maritime Republics, and Venice was the first city to import and enjoy coffee beans from the East), Venetian coffee was not a dark roast. Caffé del Doge still roasts its beans using the same method and the secrets that have been developed to produce such aromatic blends without any bitter tones.

Caffé del Doge stands to Coffee as Scotland stands to Scotch Whiskey. Why getting anything else?

In this extract taken by Caffé del Doge’s own promotional material there’s an interesting description of the Venetian Coffee story:

“In a speech given to the Senate of the Venetian Republic in 1585, G.F. Morosini stated the following: ‘…they amuse themselves by sitting both inside and out on the street, people from all classes, drinking a black liquid, scorching hot, derived from a seed called kavèe, which they say has the power to keep a man awake.’ From then on coffee quickly became a popular and diffused beverage, and finally in 1683 the first ‘coffee bar’ was born in Piazza San marco. ‘

This is the embodiment of Venetian culture which has spread worldwide… Caffé del Doge was founded on this deep rooted history…”

Thanks Venice for having brought us coffee, and Caffé del Doge for still providing us with authentic Venetian roasted coffee beans, the first, one and only Coffee!

Vquality at the Scottish Coffee Festival

Have a great time sipping premium coffee and support the farmers.

We are super excited to announce that in exactly a month we will exhibit in the Scottish Coffee Festival.

The festival has been organised by Chris Brown. We think he couldn’t have thought of a better combination of winning forces.

COFFEE The interest in coffee in all its aromas is growing at a great rate in the UK. People are not just looking for a generic cup of coffee anymore, they want to know where it comes from, taste it accurately, try different tastes and know more about how it’s done. It’s the perfect moment for an event like this one.

SCOTLAND Aye! This is the Scottish Coffee Festival.

GLASGOW We think like Chris that in all Scotland Glasgow is the perfect place for a Coffee Festival. That’s where we concentrate our business and where people are more receptive to events, big coffee scene, exciting and energetic.

CHARITY What’s best than having a great time and doing good at the same time? And having a great time for a good cause while tasting coffee? Tickets are only £8 for a whole day filled with entertainment, specialty coffee and even more to eat and drink.

Our roaster Caffe’ del Doge has been member of the Cup of Excellence since 2004. The Cup of excellence is a yearly competition where select cuppers choose the best coffee beans. Bernardo at Caffe’ del Doge purchases winning beans every year, and winning farmers are greatly supported.

BREWERY Informal but such cool places breweries are! and Drygate Brewery is very very cool.

We met Chris last night and he’s been great, we are sure it will be a success. Thanks Chris!

We’ll be there with a choice of different blends and we are working on the whole experience in this right moment! Stay tuned because we will be posting updates till the big day. Our coffee, roasted in Venice following the traditional Venetian method, is like you’ve never had before!

Go check the festival website for more information and to get your tickets now, 29th of November is just a month away!

Cuba is 100% Arabica, which means sweeter taste, many can drink it even without sugar, and as all our coffee is supplied directly and fresh by our roaster Caffe Del Doge in Venice. All beans are traced and Cuba in particular is a selection of the CUP OF EXCELLENCE.

You better be quick because it’s going fast! 

Rialto Gran Gourmet has a great personality, intense aromas which combines well with milk in a nice cappuccino perfectly foamed by the amazing guys at The Little Cafe. The beans are roasted and then cold blended according to the Venetian methods.
