Laboratorio di Torrefazione Giamaica Caffe is one of Italy's top premium coffee roasters. The company is ran by Simone Fumagalli, Gianni Frasi successor. He stays true to the tradition taught to him by Gianni himself and his uncle, Giovanni Erbisti, who began roasting coffee in 1947. He still uses his Erbisti's original roasting machine, making him almost certainly the last roasters in the world to roast his beans directly with an open flame. The family philosophy remains the same, eschewing dark roasts in order to preserve even the subtlest aromas of the coffee. Simone is obsessive about sourcing his beans and insists on specifying the exact means of production at every stage of the process.
He believes in quality over quantity, producing as much coffee in a year as Lavazza makes in two hours. Giamaica Caffè beans assure a top quality coffee chosen by premium bars and three Michelin stars restaurants.
