Feature Highlight Coffee – Lettieri & Co.

Coffee is an everyday necessity for many people around the world when they wake up. Sometimes, when we don’t have time to brew our coffee at home, due to timing, we decide to pick up a cup from somewhere else.

During the morning rush that you go through today, have you ever really considered how companies make your coffee, or what work they have put into the coffee for quality? Here’s one of those companies.

History Of Lettieri & Co.

brew your own coffee

In 1973, Francesco Lettieri opened his first small shop called “Mr. Submarine” in San Francisco. His start was making sandwiches for customers, which then gained popularity, due to the quality put into his food.

After opening an expansion of shops, Lettieri sold the chain and officially opened up Lettieri & Co. in 1988. Presently, the company offers a lot more than just sandwiches.

Lettieri also offers groceries such as baked goods, pasta, pasta sauces, fish, condiments, frozen desserts and pizzas. They distribute bulk foods for their retail customers, and they also have brands of wines and spirits.

This company imports and distributes these items for retailer food services, and exceptional quality is guaranteed because they create everything they sell from their own line of house brands. Lettieri & Co. believes in providing education about their products for their customers as well. They want their customers to have knowledge of what a retailer is selling.

Lettieri & Co. is made with 100% Arabica Brazilian coffee beans, so while it is an ‘Italian’ branded coffee, the sourcing of beans is from Brazil.  Does that make it a coffee brand from Brazil!? You decide!

What About Kimbo Espresso by Lettieri & Co?

Kimbo Espresso, founded and sold by Lettieri & Co., is an Italian coffee that can be brewed in all coffee makers at home. When bought in bulk, it can be brewed by coffee retailers for their customers.

Other than being purchased in bulk, Kimbo coffee can be purchased in a tin that is 100% organic. With as much product as this company offers for sale, you’d be able to, for example, pair a cup of their espresso with their Borggreve Butter Stabchen cookies!


Quality coffee is more than just a hot, caffeinated beverage, or a brand name. The best coffee can be found and purchased from companies such as Lettieri & Co., who put time and effort into their line of coffee.

Any company who is knowledgeable about the products they distribute, as a result of traveling to destinations that these products originate from, is proof that they are dedicated to their customers.

Quality of coffee isn’t just physical, and that’s why Lettieri & Co.’s Kimbo coffee is highly recommended. You can also buy treats from them for the perfect pairing!
