In Rovigno, they still talk about the Giotta family's success in America.
Over a half a century ago, Giovanni Giotta brought his family to America. They found a new world where hard work and prudent decisions still spelled success. Remembering his fondness for the coffee houses of Trieste, Mr. Giotta, dubbed "Papa Gianni" in the early 1950's, decided to bring their charm and exquisite coffees to his new home.
Settling in California, he soon opened Caffe Trieste in San Francisco's North Beach. A reputation for "...some of the best coffees in the city" soon followed.
Giovanni Giotta's "old world" techniques proved essential in securing this reputation as well as the distinction of being called "the Espresso Pioneer of the West Coast."
