Having achieved modern industrial dimensions, today as fifty years ago Coind continues to seek further perfection for its products, derived from the perfect balance between professional experience, use of the most modern industrial processes, and passion for the world of coffee and for the new industrial interests that have diversified its production.
Advanced technologies now enable Coind to manage its entire production process in a totally computerised way, monitoring every single phase of the various manufacturing processes, thus always guaranteeing high product quality and optimal risk management.
Every phase of coffee production – whether in beans, ground or in pods and capsules – is monitored at all times: right from the harvesting phase, when the selection of the beans is carried out in a rigorous and precise way by Coind experts. The beans are then examined and classified in the laboratory, according to their properties and categories as needed for different blends. The roasting process too is monitored at each step, to ensure that the coffee beans are roasted evenly and homogeneously. The grinding process is controlled by sophisticated devices, including a laser granulometer which controls the fineness of the grind according to the taste and use required of the blend. Special attention is given to the packaging, to ensure it satisfies the client’s requirements and taste.
Its passion for coffee has led today’s Group to joining the Italian National Espresso Institute and to create its own brands for sale to the Ho.Re.Ca catering sector with four private brands, Caffè Meseta, Caffè Carracci and Caffè Attibassi, sold both in Italy and abroad.
Through its Meseta and Attibassi licensing projects, Coind offers enterprising entrepreneurs with an eye for a challenge the possibility of creating and opening a bar or cafe.
The Group actively supports entrepreneurs who intend to invest in safety and speed, collaborating in the planning of the premises and the supply of equipment. Thanks to its Meseta Espresso School, the company can provide adequate preparation by training bartenders in order to be able to satisfy all the needs of future customers. Finally, the Group offers marketing support, providing ideas and advice to increase the stylish visibility of its premises and retain customer loyalty.
Since 2003, Coind headquarters in Castel Maggiore has also included a Permanent Training Point (PFP) for the International Institute of Coffee Tasters: this institute was created to promote coffee culture and Coind – given its history – could not say no to the chance of playing host to a place entirely dedicated to coffee training and culture… testimony to its driving passion.
The Group’s dynamism and its skill at keeping up with trends has led it to combine traditional coffee production with a line of organic and fair trade products, validating them through its international certifications. This is because it has always promoted the values that motivate Fairtrade practices.
Recent strategy has inspired the Group to diversify its production and turn to other sectors, leading to the construction of a new plant in Veneto. Coind’s cosmetics division, Coind Cosmetics, develops and produces private label cosmetic products in the Noale (VE) plant and has an annual production of about 25 million pieces. In addition to the high quality of raw materials, the Group also guarantees personalised packaging and a production chain with a low environmental impact.
With a participation in the Fruttagel company, Coind has extended its activities, producing quality fruit and vegetable products in the form of fruit nectars, frozen vegetables and tomato purees. The plant is located in Alfonsine (Ravenna Province) and gathers the best raw materials from all over Emilia-Romagna.
And to complete its strategic portfolio, the Group also has a production line in the sanitation sector: Pksan is a line of detergent, disinfectant and decalcifying products, produced in the historic Castel Maggiore plant. For more information visit the website PkSan.
