A Story About Coffee

There are things in life which even technological evolution cannot make obsolete, such as the tone of a musical instrument, a combination of flavours or the aroma of a coffee.

That is why companies that have been active for over a century, like Moka J-Enne, one of the first coffee shops in Italy, are an irreplaceable legacy of artisan culture and manufacturing excellence.

A story told from an Italian heart

It was in 1878 that Jacopo Niccolai begun running the food shop where he previously worked as an errand boy; soon after he bought the whole place. The shop was located on the Piazza del Duomo in Pistoia, right behind the San Giovanni in Corte baptistery, built in the 1300s. It was a place which, since medieval times, was fulcrum of the city’s social life. Despite the fact that, at the time, coffee was a rather rare product, Jacopo began producing renowned coffee blends, which he created by roasting Arabica coffee, from countries far away.

Furthermore, the roasting machines used at the time, generally using coal, were also quite a rarity. Then, during the inter-war period, coffee became a more widely-consumed and a more significant product. Thus this food store in Pistoia, which in the meantime had also become a lab for making spirits, became a destination for buyers in nearby areas, from the mountains for example. In the post-war period, the company began supply their services to homes. This was an added value for Moka Jenne and allowed for a further, significant, development in the following period. Now the Pistoiese coffee shop is part of the Unione delle Imprese Storiche Italiane, which brings together Italian companies, of excellence, which have been operational for at least 100 years, with their history documented, and have clearly demonstrated ethical values.

Thinking big

In the 1960s, the company was being run by the family’s fourth generation. Business was growing and a larger headquarters was necessary. It was thus decided to move the coffee shop to the nearby Piazza della Sapienza, where — years before — one of Jacopo’s sons, Dino, had purchased a plot of land, where a pawnbrokers had operated in medieval times. Here, Moka Jenne grew even further, until it needed to relocate once again. At the end of the 1990s, the headquarters moved again.

With the company’s business being now more widespread and structured, areas of the modern Sant’Agostino industrial area were chosen. Here, members of the fifth generation of the Niccolai Cappellini family recently entered the company.

Service makes the difference

Nowadays, one of Moka Jenne’s true strengths is the ability to offer not only a series of products, but a comprehensive service, including experience, training, tools and everything else which is needed to produce a good espresso. A few years ago, the company founded a coffee-shop school, with qualified and expert teachers. The courses offered are a perfect starting point for those who would like to get involved, with the relevant desire and passion, in a professional sector which is now typical of Italy. When it comes to making the perfect coffee, knowing how to pick the best ingredients is not enough.

Taking care of the raw ingredients, being attentive and helpful to customers, and taking great care in one’s work all contribute to creating the espresso which baristas produce every day, and which has always been Moka Jenne’s calling card.

Made in Tuscany

Every Moka Jenne product bears the phrase “Made in Tuscany”, because Tuscany — when it comes to food — is synonymous with excellence. Among these products, the Crema S coffee blend is the most wide-spread: a blend with a rich and intense aroma, its recipe has constantly been perfected over its lifetime, extending over a century. This blend is perfect for shops which want to opt for a timeless classic. The wide range of products also includes further blends, which are able to marry century-old knowledge and new trends. BioChicco (‘biobean’) is a perfect example, made from beans with organic certification. This is an extremely innovative product on the Italian market, which Moka Jenne released at the beginning of the 2000s and is ideal for businesses that would like to stand out.

Atmosfera, on the other hand, is a line for coffee-lovers who want high quality coffee at home. Thanks to special packaging, in an inert atmosphere, boasting a special freshness valve, the blend is able to maintain the fragrance released when being ground for far longer; a fragrance like that of coffee bought in old food stores.

There is a wide choice for those looking for single servings. The MyClub1878 is a line comprising seven different products and a coffee machine, Mia, specially designed to get the best result in the cup. Furthermore, to complete the single-serving range, there is a series of compatible capsules, offering the best blends in the most popular formats on
