A Life In Coffee ...

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 and co-founded Spinelli Coffee Company, opening stores in San Francisco and eventually Singapore and Taiwan.

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. 


"Our job is roasting coffee for you to enjoy brewed your favorite way"
