In 1979, the Segafredo family, known for its long tradition in the sector, founded the Essse Caffè brand in Bologna. The choice of writing Essse with three S’s is not accidental. They are the S’s of Science, Wisdom, Specialization and they are the three values that summarize a company philosophy based on experience and oriented towards innovation, through the consistency of coffee blends and the search for the best organoleptic quality.
We have always paid the utmost attention to the quality of the raw material and to the environmental protection: our goal is to achieve a production as sustainable as possible, respectful of the environment and we do it using cutting-edge technologies, but above all we act concretely, supporting reforestation projects able to preserve ecosystems, capture CO2 and mitigate the effects of pollution. We have joined several reforestation projects with WOWnature because it is only with concrete gestures that we can really do our part to combat the climate crisis: trees are essential for our survival and for that of animals in the forests they find their habitat, food and shelter, as well as having a very important function to limit hydrogeological instability and contain the effects of extreme weather events, now increasingly frequent.
We want to do our part in the best way we know how, through coffee: we have created a new blend that we have called GRANCREMA, an innovative blend of fine coffees mainly from India and Tanzania expertly blended and roasted by our experts. A strong, full-bodied and creamy coffee that releases aromas of toast, dried fruit and spices.
For every 100 kg of GRAN CREMA that we roast, Essse Caffè is committed to planting a tree both in areas affected by the storm Vaia as Enego, on the Asiago Plateau, and abroad, in Burkina Faso, a developing country where fruit trees such as black, moringa and baobab play an essential role for the emancipation and economic independence of women, as well as for the development of local communities because it provides food and income to many families.
This project was created to offer our customers the opportunity to buy a blend of coffee that can make a small contribution to nature.
