Brief history of Chicco d’Oro

Since 1949, Caffè Chicco d’Oro di Er. R. Valsangiacomo has focused on living up to the taste expectations and requirements of a wide customer base in the coffee roasting industry by placing great emphasis on the quality of its products.

Over time, the company has managed to position itself well in the Swiss market and establish itself in other countries by using excellent technology and continuously advancing in the world of coffee.


The high standard of quality is what has allowed the company to achieve these large market shares.

The standard is based on carefully selecting imported coffees, mainly Arabica, from the best producers in the world.

All processing steps – from selecting the raw coffee beans to performing the classic, slow Italian roasting phases to final packaging – happen in a modern roasting facility.

A highly-skilled staff uses modern, state-of-the-art facilities and equipment and masterfully combines these with tradition, experience, attention to detail and precision for all the processing steps.

The symbol of Caffè Chicco d’Oro is a cornucopia, a horn of plenty, which expresses coffee’s many benefits, the magical drink that gives life energy and well-being to body and spirit.
