Picapau is a micro-roastery that was founded in 2019 in Rome by Emanuele Bernabei and his wife Carolina. Their adventure in the world of quality coffee began in 2013 in Brazil, where they discovered specialty coffee in a São Paolo café.
Before embarking on an entrepreneurial adventure, Emanuele trained for more than four years at a Roman roasting company where we met and started collaborating. Among the first to test and believe in the GROUNDtoENJOY project, Emanuele is certainly a prominent figure in the Italian specialty scene with active participation in the SCA Brewing and Roasting championships. Thanks to all of his knowledge and experience, he became AST SCA Trainer in 2019 and manages consultancy and training in the association.
Today in Picapau he acts as the master roaster, personally taking care of the selection of micro-lots of green coffee and studying the most suitable roasting profiles, as well as producing all the roasts that the company offers.
Carolina, with a background of specialized training and experience in the field in Brazilian coffee shops, deals with the administrative part, with the management of customers and suppliers.
Picapau’s philosophy is based on specialty coffee. They work with high-quality, fresh, seasonal coffees, grown on small plantations often biodynamic and who pay fair salaries to the workers. Their aim is to improve the conditions of the producers and the entire coffee chain.
Specialty coffee favors this philosophy thanks to the traceability and sustainability required by SCA to be classified as such. Picapau selects the best micro-lots because they believe in an ethical and high-quality offer, and we are proud to have some of their coffees in our selection.
