The story of Caffè Trucillo begins in 1950, when Cesare Trucillo, in a house a few steps from the sea on the Amalfi coast, began roasting green coffee and delivering it to the traders of the time on board of his Cinquecento Belvedere. His great passion for coffee won him over until it became a family tradition.
The new factory, inaugurated in 2016, is the result of a great design work Matteo Trucillo, son of Cesare, eager to combine the ancient family tradition of coffee with technological innovation applied to the production process.
The structure is the final result of an avant-garde architectural design that has involved architects and professionals in the difficult task of creating unity and harmony between the production area and the elegant interior spaces.
