About us

SIMONE GUIDI, DOC Florentine, born in 1987, founder of “La Sosta Specialty Coffee”.

His passion for the coffee starts more than 10 years ago when he was working as Bartender in a cocktail-bar in Florence, where a Cappuccino was asked during happy hour.

Having no idea of how a Cappuccino needs to be served, he realized his big gap.

From there he started his adventure discovering the Coffee roasting process.
