It all started years ago, in a warm Italian family's kitchen in central Illinois. Steam from Noni’s percolator meant that the coffee was just about brewed, as our family made their way out to the screened-in porch to prepare for breakfast. It was at these family gatherings where Gino and Kathryn Martini introduced their eldest son Tony, to a bold, black cup of freshly brewed coffee.
Brewing coffee has been a family ritual for decades and we are glad to evolve this tradition into a roasting company focused on quality, sustainability, and the customer experience.
So from the rolling hills of Perugia, Italy to the urban jungles of Chicago, Illinois, Martini Coffee comes to you as the result of a long lineage of coffee drinkers. We hope you enjoy!
We have had the opportunity to partner with "Crossroads" Transitional Center as well as several high schools to help special needs young adults integrate into the work force. Martini Coffee teaches young adults how to produce a retail coffee bag.
Students learn how to operate a kitchen scale to weigh out coffee beans as well as learn the skills of how to accurately label, bag, and box coffee beans.
