We grew up with a love for coffee:

a passion that we have been passing down for over 80 years to which we dedicate ourselves, with the same aroma as always.

1929

1929 – Alberto Dini

Alberto Dini, fresh out of boyhood, begins his career working for a Florentine company specialised in colonial products. He switched from selling sugar and tea to the coffee trade – although it was then little known as a beverage, it was already his great passion.

1939

1939 – Dinicaffè is born

Dinicaffè was founded, with headquarters in the historical centre of Florence. At 30 years of age, Alberto’s goal was to create a “mini company” based on product excellence.

1966

1966 – Flood

Firenze is hit by a catastrophic flood that destroyed a great part of the city, including the headquarters of Dinicaffè. Alberto does not lose hope: he moves the company’s headquarters to his home and commissions coffee roasting to a small roaster in Pistoia.

1968

1968 – Via dei Bastioni

Alberto turns the old furnace in Via dei Bastioni into his new, current company.

1980

1980 – Elisabetta e Laura

Elisabetta and Laura, Antonio’s daughters, take charge of the company.

1996

1996 – Certification

Together with other Italian roasters, Dinicaffè founds Associazione Caffè Speciali Certificati (CSC – Special Certified Coffee Association, in the Italian abbreviation), a consortium created to protect coffee quality and its total traceability, from plant to cup.

2009

2009 – Third generation

Dinicaffè’s corporate values have remained the same thanks to Serena and Benedetta, daughters of Elisabetta, whose passion and efforts, equal to those of their grandfather, continue to keep alive the traditions that make high-quality coffee.
