Watch the video and discover why Paolo Brunelli chose Le Piantagioni del Caffè specialty coffees for his creations and his shops.
Chocolate and Gelato Maker from Marche Region
Paolo Brunelli is an incurably headstrong enthusiast.
Study, research and the desire to shape his own future, moving beyond his roots in the hotel and
catering world led him to where he is now, among Italy’s leading gelato and chocolate specialists.
Paolo’s work is driven by the pursuit of quality but, above all, by a desire to capture in his products,
work processes and pairings the emotion that only a bite of one of his cakes or a taste of one of his
gelatos can deliver. This is the inspiration behind his shops (most recently Combo): they are a meeting point between his art and the exceptional produce of those he regards as virtuous artisans from different sectors of the culinary world, from coffee to wine!
We found each other and understood each other, and that’s why Paolo Brunelli chose our
Paolo Brunelli introduced himself and described his business venture as follows:
“Hi, I’m Paolo Brunelli, an ice cream maker and pastry chef from Senigallia.
I’m here at Combo, my new business that I launched in 2020 when the global pandemic was in full swing. The project had to be modified and adapted to the situation, and it is evolving constantly.
I like to define Combo as a contemporary, larger ice cream parlour – or a small patisserie. Here we talk about the culture of sweet food, about pairings and partnerships: a lot of friends come and discuss things with me, experts from the world of wine, beer, and of course the coffee sector too.
I absolutely had to set up a partnership that I am extremely invested in, both in terms of taste and my particular sentimental attachment to it! While we’re on the subject, I can reveal that I’ve come up with an ice cream flavour I’m particularly fond of: “Il Caffè dei Poeti” (“The Coffee of Poets”), which came about when I blended one of my own products, Alchermes, with coffee from Le Piantagioni del Caffè.”
