Son of Coffee is the specialty coffee micro roastery line from Pierre Cafè located in the town of Gravina in Puglia, inland from Bari. A veteran of the Italian specialty scene, head roaster Luigi Paternoster has appeared on the podium of the Italian Coffee Roasting Championship in three consecutive years from 2018 to 2020.
The two brother and second generation roasters, Luigi and Vincenzo Paternoster grew up in their family roastery, playing amongst the jute coffee sacks. After their father developed an intolerance to coffee, the teenagers began to assist with the roasting. It was a trip to London that sparked Luigi's interest in specialty coffee, which he introduced into their family roasting line-up in 2010.
