Co.ind history

Co.ind is a group that is born through a fascinating history that brings with it the magic of coffee beans in distant lands and cultures. The precious plants and their fruits reached Europe thanks to explorer, adventurers and traders who followed the routes of the ships. We are above all indebted to them for that intense pleasure we feel every time we enjoy a good coffee.
 
It’s starting from that spirit that Co.ind was founded in 1961 in Castel Maggiore (BO). A company that immediately became an important roasting company in Italy through the passion for the products Co.ind produces. Then, improving year by year following its mission values, Co.ind now is one of the most important roasting company in Italy in terms of green coffee tons roasted every year.
 
Co.ind is a company that implements modern coffee processes but today, as 50 years ago, Co.ind still use working methods based on a simple but effective formula: a perfect balance between human experience, modern industrial processes and passion for coffee.
