80 Stone Coffee Roasters
80 Stone Coffee Roasters are a duo who are more than a little obsessed with all things coffee-related.
Simone and Roberto’s story started in London, back in the glory days of 2006, while working together in a restaurant.
But let’s go back to the beginning… Roberto grew up in his family run coffee shop in Verona, and has always been in hospitality. He also happens to be a whiz at financial management and with finely-tuned organisational skills. Roberto left London in 2008 and started running his own busy coffee & wine bar in Verona.
Simone has spent over 17 years in the coffee industry, in everything from barista training, speciality coffee roasting and coffee exporting. He even upped sticks from his London life in 2010, after finishing in 6th place at the UK Barista Championship, and moved to Guatemala to learn more tricks of the trade. He got involved with a coffee exporting company and judged barista competitions throughout Central America.
He also secured 2nd place at the Italian coffee cupping competition in 2012.
While they have different backgrounds, they make a team as balanced as their tastiest blends.
