We here at Capitano like to think of the world of coffee not as a static range of cultivated land that lies between Cancer and Capricorn, but instead as a botanically differentiated region whose crop originated in Ethiopia over a thousand years ago. Since then, coffee has moved to the middle east, to India and Indonesia, then to the New World, and finally, back to Africa and Kenya as a domesticated, genetically modified product. This journey is our journey as coffee specialists, a journey back to coffee’s birthplace.Hello John!

Flavor of the Month

Amaro Espresso

Asnakech is one of the most inspiring figures in Ethiopian coffee today. Native to the Amaro region, Asnakech decided in 2005 to return to her homeland and have an influence on coffee quality improvement at her mill and local communities. She is the only female miller to-date in Ethiopia, and is one of the few people to travel weekly between Addis and the coffee areas.

Get Closer

Capitano Coffee offers a connection to origin with each coffee experience. Our coffee buyers have demonstrated a special ability to discover truly wonderful and distinctive coffees. We roast our coffee and present it to the consumer in such a way that the differences and subtleties between roasts are as apparent as the nuances found in wine. These diverse flavors lead to a deeper discovery of coffee origins, the people who grow and harvest the cherries, the cultures that exist where the coffees are cultivated, and the economic relationships that are formed with each and every coffee purchase.

Monthly Newsletter

We've recently launched a new, monthly newsletter for fans of our coffee or anyone interested in all things Capitano. We'll be giving reviews of the latest coffee machines, introducing new beans and roasts, sharing stories from our coffee travelers and most importantly - sharing discounts and special offers with you - the Capitano family. We won't share you're email address with anyone else, and we won't send you any other emails - no spam.
