THE ORIGINS OF PARISI

It was our Sicilian grandmother, with the help of a moka pot and Italian espresso, who introduced us to the fine art of coffee. She instilled in us a deep sense of “coffee as a tasteful part of daily life.” It was always the pinnacle moment of every social occasion. It was treated with care and selected purposefully to be an ideal complement.

Years later, the growth of the local roasting movement awakened our fond memories of handcrafted coffee. We were inspired to pair our love of coffee with our long-standing passion for producing fine foods. It had always been our belief coffee played as important a role in the dining experience as it does in supporting the social conventions of our world. 

We opened the Parisi Artisan Coffee roasting facility in 2006. Since inception, we have strived to source the highest quality specialty coffee. We have dedicated ourselves to perfecting roast profiles that maximize the natural essence in every bean. There is nothing automated or factory-like about what we do. It is and will always be a craftsman's venture.

Up until 2011, Parisi Coffee had only been available in quality Kansas City restaurants and grocery stores. We opened the first Parisi Café in Kansas City in 2011 to present the finished hand-brewed cup; our art we intended from our roasts. And like our roasting avocation, we work every day to achieve perfection in the craft.



Whether you are enjoying a cup of Parisi at your favorite restaurant, local coffee shop, kitchen table or at Parisi Café, you can rest assure that we’ve been looking out for your taste experience every step of the way.

It’s { ARTE DELLA TAZZA } or ART FROM THE CUP ®.

WHERE QUALITY MEETS SUSTAINABILITY

As an exclusive specialty coffee roaster, we pay above fair trade prices for the ingredients we source. But, as proud coffee perfectionists, we've set our sights higher than a symbol on our package. Our sourcing goals are based on quality and with you in mind.

What role does a focus on quality play in sustainability? Quality creates demand and a level of certainty for future crops where quality can be consistently achieved. We're proud to have built direct relationships with farms and co-ops producing quality products. We strive to create sustainability by supporting a farm's ability to invest in future crops as well as improve conditions for workers and their families.

We do source fair trade and organic certified coffees as well as Rainforest Alliance and shade grown offerings. Each sample is evaluated with the parameters of cup quality, the potential for sustainable supply and if the coffee meets our customers’ needs and wants. Regardless of certification, the coffee we select allows to bring a genuinely artistic experience to each cup we share.

A direct relationship brings with it the ability to know the names, faces and needs of the people with whom we work, as well as ensure direct receipt of the proceeds of our partnership.
