Our story

Ditta Artigianale was founded in 2013 by Francesco Sanapo, world-renowned barista and coffee taster champion, and by Patrick Hoffer. Our main aim and mission is to bring to Italy high quality coffees, and to describe them in a brand new way, by focusing on the total transparency and eco-sustainability in, and for, all the different production steps.

Making dream come true

However, after founding our micro-roastery, we started to feel the need to bring our product to the squares and the streets, to communicate directly with customers our personal coffee experience. This need coincided with the opening of our first cafeteria, Ditta Artigianale Coffee Bar situated in via de’ Neri 32r. It is here that our adventure started which led us in less than a year to inaugurate our second bar in via dello Sprone, Ditta Artigianale Oltrarno, situated on the other bank of the river Arno.
