Considered by many to be the ‘founding father’ of espresso coffee, my great-grandfather  Hermann Ernest Hausbrandt encountered a small plant when he was young that would change his destiny and that of our family for generations to come … the coffee plant. During the late 19th century in Trieste, Italy he began to roast, sell and later export espresso coffee around the world, contributing significantly to the reputation that Trieste still retains today as the ‘espresso coffee capital’ of the world.

Loosely translated Antica Tostatura Triestina means “Old Roast of Trieste”. This name is dedicated to the traditions of my family and to the city of Trieste where the product is still exclusively roasted. Today, over a century and four generations later, Antica Tostatura Triestina is served in some of the finest retail establishments in 24 countries worldwide.

Our drive for quality is a constant and all-consuming passion, helping to maintain the key elements of what should make your experience of our truly Italian espresso coffee so special. We’re proud and excited to now offer our products for you to enjoy at home too.
