How It All Began
Our story goes back around 25 years, to our founder Gerry Ford. Armed with a passion for coffee, he had a vision to create traditional Italian cafés across Europe; places that would serve very high quality coffee and serve as neighbourhood meeting spots.
We started off simply trying to make a few local independent coffee houses work. And they did! We never aspired to be a big company; in fact, even today we see ourselves as a start-up.
We have reinvested in the business to stay true to Gerry’s original vision and we’ve done this with resilience and determination.
