Caffè Umbria is a third-generation family owned company originally founded in 1948 in the town of Perugia, Italy, and later relocated to Seattle.
The business got its start when Ornello Bizzarri began roasting coffee beans in his hometown. In 1986 Ornello’s son, Umberto, brought the family method to the United States, establishing himself in the Pacific Northwest and becoming one of the area’s premier Italian coffee roaster. Today, the tradition of blending and roasting lives on through Bizzarri grandson, Emanuele, along with his business partners and co-owners Jesse Sweeney and Pasquale Madeddu.
To produce their signature blends, Caffè Umbria uses a wide spectrum of bean varietals, sourced from 12 to 15 different countries on four continents around the world. Expert blending gives Caffè Umbria coffees a balanced full body finish and a complex, yet sophisticated flavor profile.
Caffè Umbria produces 6 blends, and each one uses between 2 and 7 different beans. However, all of Bizzarri’s blends are comprised of 100 percent green coffees that are organic, fair trade, and shade-grown, when possible.
In addition, Caffè Umbria produces a rotating single-origin coffee (e.g. Pure El Salvador, Columbia, Ethiopia, etc.), which we use for our house-made cold brew. It’s a perfect way to showcase the intricate flavors of the coffee’s country of origin.
