Our Story

download Since the launch of our first blend in 2000, Espresso di Manfredi has been much inspired by the generous, casual authenticity of modern café culture. Our distinctive blends are a meeting of minds between celebrated chef Stefano Manfredi and master blender Wayne Archer. They’re equal parts fearless genius and shrewd judgement. So you’ll discover intense flavour profiles, the upshot of beans sourced from the world’s best coffee terrain. We call it sprezzatura – effortless mastery. Sprezzatura comes naturally to our café customers. It’s in their seasoned espresso technique, their easy friendly service. It’s a natural fit with Espresso di Manfredi’s complete café solution: freshly roasted coffees, accredited barista training, a compelling range of design wares and much more.
