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 – 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 – 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 – 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 – Via dei Bastioni
Alberto turns the old furnace in Via dei Bastioni into his new, current company.
1980 – Elisabetta e Laura
Elisabetta and Laura, Alberto’s daughters, take charge of the company.
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.
