Social networking to the flavour of coffee.
Coffee as a meeting, a look, a smile, an exchange and an understanding. This is the soul of the new Manuel press campaign. Various couples shown drinking a cup of coffee, sharing a moment of relaxation, chatting earnestly in “Real chat”, delicately touching one another in “Real touch” and with special intimacy in “Real sharing”. The language of social networking is thus transported into reality, enveloping everyday lives, where coffee is not virtual but can be enjoyed, black and steaming hot.

Easter 2015
In Italy, starred chefs advise us not to abandon tradition. So this celebration of rebirth will be all about savoury Easter pies - artichokes, ricotta and eggs in a puff pastry crust. Succulent roast lamb and kid. Colomba cakes and eggs full of surprises. But at the end, right at the very end, a Capriccio coffee is what you need for a truly grand finale. This Superior Arabica in that understated little white cup will make the last piece of delicious chocolate a glorious experience. Happy Easter to all of you. Wherever you are.
8 March 2015: women on the verge.
Ladies, to help your constant pursuit of fitness and wellbeing, Manuel brings you Equilibris. A skilful reworking of the legendary Caffé della bisnonna, 50% excellent Arabica and 50% fine barley, this is the blend that allows you to enjoy a coffee break of feel-good delicateness. Also excellent for men on the verge of that nervous breakdown.
When love blooms.
A shy aniseed flower unfolds to meet the best Arabica. Love explodes and this intriguing embrace brings us SAMTIME, the new Sambuca liqueur with Manuel coffee. Fascinating after dinner, wonderful flambéed, delicious icy cold and desirable even au naturel, SAMTIME is always exciting. Just like the greatest love stories.
This great passion for chocolate.
History has seen plenty of famous names who had a true passion for chocolate. Pope Pius V was the first to create a scandal by allowing a cup of hot chocolate on fasting days. Chocolate then enticed Madame de Maintenon, wife of the Sun King, as it did the favourite ladies of Louis XV, and Marie Antoinette, wife of Louis XVII, always travelled with her own personal chocolatier. It seems that Voltaire drank dozens of cups of it a day, Goldoni sang its praises in his plays, Casanova used it as an aphrodisiac and, finally, Mozart, Tchaikovsky and Strauss all exalted its “notes of taste”. That same captivating taste that submerges your senses when you savour a cup of Manuel hot chocolate. Creamy, thick and so luxurious. Pure dark carefully selected wellbeing or the delicate softness of white? Delicious milk or the enjoyment of hazelnut? The irresistible allure of coconut, or persuasive orange and cinnamon? Whichever flavour you choose, be ready to lick your lips!
Giving Manuel tea as a gift is a bit like giving a small piece of our world.
Essences of herbs and fruits, aromas from magical lands, blends of moods that seduce the soul and bring with them the distant echo of entire populations. Ideas for truly relaxing moments to be enjoyed with the elegant gift accessories. Happiness in the heart of the lucky recipient.
How to understand if you are drinking a good coffee.
First of all, take a good look at it because it should be a hazelnut-brown colour, neither too light nor too dark. The cream should be dense and compact enough to make the sugar sink slowly. Now smell it. If you can smell notes of cinnamon, toasted bread, tobacco, dried fruit, jasmine, biscuits, chocolate or vanilla, well done! You are on a par with top coffee tasters. The final test is taste. Does an irresistible sensation of sweetness prevail? You have before you an excellent espresso. You deserve it!
Let’s raise a glass of Orgoglio.
This new extra dry Prosecco from the vines in Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, cultivated by the Giusti family down through the generations, is the colour of the sun and perfect with strong flavours. So fill your glass and join us in a toast!
Fruit teas: nice with ice!
Their names alone are enough to tickle the thirsty taste buds of the summer crowd: Brezza estiva (Summer breeze), Profumi alpini (Alpine fragrances), Rossa passione (Red passion), Fonte dissetante (Refreshing spring), Sapore mediterraneo (Taste of the Mediterranean), Sogno d’Amore (Dream of Love), Tesori del Bosco (Treasures from the Forest), Notte d’Oriente (Night in the Orient), Coccole invernali (Winter cuddles) and Jasmine Tea. Special flavours with that extra something and mouth-watering aroma, prepared as and when needed. A frozen winner.
Summer Capriccio
The reworking of a traditional blend, Capriccio ticks all the boxes for delighting today's palates. A blend of unique quality, comprising a large percentage of Arabica and carefully selected Robusta to guarantee unexpected creaminess. Enjoy it during August!
Coffee for a hot summer. A frisson of flavour with the new Frozen water-ice. A unique consistency, comparable to real Sicilian water-ices, ready to be enriched with good Manuel espresso coffee, a good mood, desire and whirls of whipped cream.

It contained wisdom, tenderness, altruism, goodness and plenty of joy; there was also peace and so much love, to fill every heart. Wishing you all a Happy Easter from Manuel.
8 March 2014: Caffettuosi biscuits instead of mimosa.

The history, quality, products and services of the “Coffee Specialists” in a new interactive presentation: add it to your iBooks library now.

Manuel Caffè has once again shown it is on the cutting edge, with a new initiative dedicative to sector operators and a wide-ranging public: the Manuel Caffè iBook. A digital publication packed with information, photo galleries, links and interactive widgets relative to the company and its world of coffee.

The Manuel Caffè iBook traces the story of this 100% Italian brand, which was founded in the fifties as an artisan roasting lab and has become a successful business on an international level. It also reveals the “secrets” of a real top-quality coffee, from cultivation, to roasting and packaging, also explaining how to prepare and taste a truly authentic espresso.

In addition to coffee, the iBook also presents the entire range of products selected with love and experience by the De Giusti family, which has always been at the head of this company in Conegliano Veneto: black, herbal and fruit teas, hot chocolate, "Orgoglio De Giusti" Prosecco DOC DRY or DOCG EXTRA DRY and other delicious specialities. The section dedicated to Spazio Caffè is especially interesting for “those in the business”. This is an original concept for contemporary style coffee bars, dedicated to the pleasure of coffee and quality of life, with successful examples in Italy, Europe and the United States.

There is also the entire collection of Pausa magazines, another Manuel Caffè initiative, here in its digital version, easy to read on an iPad anywhere, anytime. The Manuel Caffè iBook is therefore a user-friendly yet innovative tool, helping to give a better idea about this company and experience all the flavours, not just organoleptic, but also cultural of a truly excellent coffee.

A splendid CAPRICCIO

The moon-like silver of its name stands out against the midnight black background. This is the evening dress chosen for CAPRICCIO, the 70% Arabica blend with intense hints of cocoa. The packaging devised for this refined Manuel creation holds in all the vibrant aroma and adds the polished gleam of the tin. An elegant sophisticated guise with clever chiaroscuro effects, appearing and disappearing into the dark like a moth.   

Orgoglio De Giusti
The first warm weather, the first dinners al fresco, the first evenings spent outside. The first glass raised to welcome the summer. Orgoglio De Giusti prosecco is the natural choice. A DOC wine from the hills of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, as sparkling as laughter and the same golden colour as sand on the beach. Excellent at the start of a buffet or as an accompaniment for sophisticated dishes, Orgoglio is good to savour, lovely to look at and perfect as a gift.
Hot chocolates for mum
What does tenderness taste like? Like a round, smooth, welcoming cup of hot chocolate. Manuel Caffé ideas for your first true love on Mother’s Day: 18 variations on the beloved theme of cocoa, each one for a different kind of mother. ‘Strawberry flavour’ is what you need for a youthful fun lady. ‘Mint flavour’ for an astute appealing personality. ‘Orange and cinnamon flavour’ for the sophisticated yummy mummy. You decide the others!
A taste of spring
Anything but boring. The sweet scent of expectation. For a mouth-watering velvety Easter, follow your nose and choose one of the many herbal and fruit teas by Manuel Caffè. 11 quintessential graceful flavours, all ready to delight your palate and envelop you with their aroma.  From the dusky woods of “Blueberry and rosehip”, to the gentle country fields of “Apple” and the clear penetrating fragrance of “Mint”. Take your first sip and make a wish.
Creamy delight
Can delicious creaminess be condensed into a tiny delicacy? Try a Manuel Caffè milk Chocolate and find out.

Manuel Caffè milk Chocolates are a drop of sweetness that nobody can resist.
Exquisite blends
Two exclusive recipes, two unmistakable aromas, two cups of coffee to savour in your local bar. Degusto for lovers of 100% Arabica: roasted single-origin with an aftertaste of flowers, citrus and distant flavours. And Capriccio for gourmet taste: an intense creamy blend with an all-enveloping body and strong hint of cocoa. Both beautifully presented in special packaging that preserves their fragrance and makes them stand out from the crowd. Look them out, order them, taste them. 
Christmas Panettone
