Le Vespe Caffè
Watch the video to find out why Gaia Tilli and Selena Cristo have chosen Le Piantagioni del Caffè specialty coffees for their coffee shop Le Vespe Caffè.
American coffee and a real brunch in Florence!
Gaia and Selena are the owners of Le Vespe Caffè, an international coffee shop located in the centre of Florence.
We met them at a trade show, while they were looking for a coffee suitable for the American brew. This type of extraction is rather unusual in Italy but it’s widely known abroad and highly appreciated by their international clientele. Our specialty coffees are a perfect choice for the extraction methods other than espresso and they make a great match with the rich brunch served at Le Vespe!
We are proud to please our customers by providing alternative and unique products, as in the case of Gaia and Selena, who in turn can offer the best solutions to their clients!
Gaia and Selena introduced themselves and told us more about their coffee shop:
“Hi, I’m Gaia, and together with Selena we are the owners of Le Vespe Caffè. We opened the shop about eight years ago, and the project was born with the intention of serving brunch and offering the so-called American breakfast (quite widespread in Northern Europe). We wanted to reach a market share that, in our opinion, was not yet targeted in Florence. During a trade show, we tried the coffees of Le Piantagioni del caffè, which in part we already knew. We were really impressed by their Yrgalem, which in fact is the coffee that we have chosen for our American coffee. American coffee is a very important product for us and we realized that this coffee can be enjoyed both by the Italian and, in particular, by the American consumers.
My name is Selena Cristo, I’m from Toronto. I’ve moved here ten years ago and being from North America I realized, pretty quickly, how important it would be for us to find just the right coffee, because is such a big part of our breakfast and we have a lot of tourist and students here and it is hard to find a good coffee. So, we were really happy with finding Le Piantagioni del Caffè because Massimo and Paolo took a lot of time with us, walking us through these coffees, educating us about coffee and above all finding the right coffee for us. And we’ve been happier ever since!”
