El Tambor, a coffee farm that reverberates with the rhythm of sustainable farming and quality coffee, is managed by Victor Calderon, a fifth-generation coffee farmer. After purchasing the farm in 2001, Victor embarked on a mission to rejuvenate the neglected coffee plots.

Innovation and eco-consciousness led him to develop a unique, environmentally friendly solution to combat coffee leaf rust. Drawing upon the farm's mining history, Victor found that the abundant clay left from mining operations could be harnessed as an effective, alkaline-based remedy for this disease.

El Tambor, translating to 'The Drum', echoes the commitment to its community and environment. Employees call the farm home and are given a portion of the land for their vegetable cultivation. Furthermore, half the farm remains forested, illustrating the balance between cultivation and conservation.

Experience the rich, harmonious blend of tradition and innovation with El Tambor's premium coffee – a testament to Victor Calderon's relentless pursuit of coffee excellence.

Setting the bar above cafe quality

Le Piantagioni History

It started in 1893 when brothers Antonio and Luigi Meschini arrived in Italy from Switzerland. They became involved in the roasting and retailing coffee and created their first coffee brand Arcaffè.

The company survived the World War and economic recessions. The destruction destroyed the company, but it rose from the ash each time and rebuilt itself.

Coffee Legend Enrico Meschini

Enrico Meschini, taking over his family’s company in 1986, revolutionized Italian coffee practices using scientific methods for quality assessment.

In 1996, Enrico established the Certified Specialty Coffee (CSC) certification, ensuring consistent, high-quality coffee through rigorous inspections, and protecting consumers from counterfeit coffee.

Access to genuine specialty coffee

Meschini’s expertise led him to become a juror at the esteemed Cup of Excellence, often called the ‘Oscars of the coffee world’.

His role at this grand coffee grading competition allowed him to directly negotiate with top-tier farmers, securing specialty coffees near competition grade at fair prices.

Discovery of Le Piantagioni

Le Piantagioni del Caffè, a small business roasting single-estate coffees, was founded in 1994. Enrico Meschini, joined the company in 1999, initially as a minority shareholder, and later as the majority shareholder.

Enrico’s innovative approach breathed new life into the business: the numerous trips to source countries to meet with producers in person, combined with his knowledge, improved the quality and consistency of the roasted coffees.

Absolute Quality

Enrico’s daughter, a Molecular Biology graduate Prunella joined the company and spearheaded the research and development of new coffees.

The company maintains quality through daily lab testing of coffee batches and assigning individual roasting profiles to each estate’s coffee. Coffees are roasted separately and blended after roasting to maintain distinct aromas, with the roasting process overseen by a master roaster.

Two main categories

Di Piantagione coffee is single-estate coffee, individually processed to preserve the unique aromas of each location and respect the growers’ craftsmanship. This caters to customers desiring a distinct and pure aromatic profile in their coffee.

Specialty People Blends are quality everyday coffees made by combining single-estate coffees, creating a range of flavours and complexity. They can be appreciated without expert knowledge, making them a good starting point for those new to specialty coffee.

Le Piantagioni. Italy’s finest

Quality will always be the key strength of Le Piantagioni.

Though emphasizes quality control through daily sampling, laboratory analysis of their coffee, and cup results. Le Piantagioni maintains consistency through its stringent quality criteria that must always be met.
