Simonelli Group remembers its partner Gianni Cassatini


BELFORTE DEL CHIENTI, Macerata (Italy) – Born in Sicily in 1937, he moved to Vancouver, Canada where he lived for over forty years. Here, he contributed to the spreading of coffee culture in all of North America, while traveling worldwide and consolidating a strong foundation along the entire supply chain. Coffee was his life, and how he used to love saying “Coffee was in his dna”.

Simonelli Group mourns Gianni Cassatini

His signature Borsalino hat is always with him, – in a recent interview he declared that he loved this type of hat because it was an Italian icon and matched his personality – Gianni Cassatini operated for twelve years in the world barista championships, coffee festivals, and exhibitions. He was always the center of attention and flawlessly engaged the operators of the industry, and particularly had a special feeling with the many baristas and competitors whom he met and considered real friends.

“We lost a remarkable human” – declared President Nando Ottavi – “who with his extreme joyfulness and generosity was always ready to help those in need. It is also thanks to his collaboration that we were able to start, many years ago, our mission of coffee ambassadors around the world. He continued bringing forth this mission along with us during the internationalization of the two brands Nuova Simonelli and Victoria Arduino”.

“Nevertheless his age”, – reminds Marco Feliziani, CEO of the company – “he was the youngest and most humorous of the group. He was the last person to go to sleep but the first person to be in the office. He leaves his inheritance of great coffee passion, not only as a product but also as a community”.
