While visiting Italy, our company founders learned to savor the rich taste of espresso, as well as the Italian lifestyle. Vowing to bring the flavorful espresso experience back to the U.S., they launched Amici Espresso in September 2005. Recalling how friendships were formed over a cup of espresso in Italy, we believed Amici, the Italian word for “friends,” seemed the perfect name. It’s fitting, then, that Amici Espresso is a great place to sit back, relax and savor Italian-style coffee with your friends. Based on a corporate legacy of outstanding customer service dating back to 1959, Amici Espresso is more than espresso—it’s service second to none. From ambiance to exceptional drinks, our passion for great service is present in every sip and every smile. Friendly.
