Luigi Zaccagnini was born and raised in a little town in Abruzzo, Italy before immigrating to Toronto, Canada in 1959. Being a natural entrepreneur, he found several ways to support his family. His youngest son, Dino, shared the same ambitious drive and created his first business at a very young age. He always strived to be the best with every venture he involved himself in, and with many years of different successful businesses, he was unfulfilled. After a chance conversation with his father about the espresso he missed from back home, Dino became inspired. He was determined to create the finest quality espresso with the true original European taste and to offer freshly roasted coffee directly to consumers.
The result has been impressive. The blend used to produce the Ara Azzurro Espresso delivers the highest degree of taste, with no bitterness or aftertaste. All the product offerings are packaged in a vibrant bag designed with a one-way valve to provide degassing of the coffee beans because the product is freshly packed at their facility 8 hours after roasting. The thick "crema" is distinctive and indicates the right degree of blend and roasting.
