The Magic Elixir...

Thirty years and thousands of cups ago, Arnold Spinelli fell in love with coffee. He was working in the restaurant industry selling La Marzocco espresso machines when he became fascinated with the beans themselves—the raw ingredient, the magic elixir. 

The Relentless Pursuit of Quality...

A chance meeting with Alfred Peet, founder of Peet's Coffee and the man primarily responsible for cultivating the Bay Area's taste for fine coffee, led to a lifelong friendship filled with weekly cuppings and countless conversations in which Alfred shared his knowledge and passion for the relentless pursuit of quality. 


"Whether you enjoy one cup of coffee a day or one a year, it should be the best."

— Arnold Spinelli
