Our Story

For centuries coffee has provided inspiration, warmth, energy, clarity, contemplation and a chance to savor and share “the good life” for all those whose enjoyed its robust flavors and rich aromas. It wasn’t until 1870, in Southern Italy, that true coffee perfection – Cafè Barbera® – was created by our founder, Domenico Barbera, when he opened our first coffee house and served fresh coffee roasted daily with passion and dedication.

Over 140 years later the tradition of the Cafè Barbera Company, the oldest coffee company in Europe, has been carried on by five generations of the Barbera family and merged with a spectactular vision to establish traditional Italian coffee shops serving premium authentic Italian roasted coffee beans. Still sourced from seven varieties of the world’s finest coffee beans, slow roasted separately by master coffee roasters and artfully blended to our original recipe – Cafè Barbera coffee houses offer true old world charm, an appreciation for the special moments in life, a fresher, tastier, healthier menu, and romantic, aromatic, authentic Italian coffee.

Stepping into a Cafè Barbera coffee house is like stepping back in time. Here you’ll find a slower pace and a chance to re-discover the finer, simpler things like food, family and friends. Of course, there’s always the coffee. Each cup is hand-brewed by baristas who are trained in the ways of our founder, Domenico, with a respect, reverence and passion for truly authentic Italian espresso. Our menu features Italian-inspired panini sandwiches, fresh fish, mediterrean style salads, light croissant breakfasts, or Greek and Italian cheeses, dressings, fresh vegetables, pastries, spices and flavors.

From the day the first Cafè Barbera franchise opened in 2004, Cafè Barbera has preserved the tradition and spirit brought by each cup of perfect Italian espresso. We are dedicated to providing a nostalgic, yet enjoyable experience through superior product standards and service excellence.

Welcome to Cafè Barbera. La dolce vita!

Dr. Enrico Barbera, CEO and Founder
