Edo Quarta Coffee Roasters

Roaster in Lecce

Edo Quarta Coffee Roasters is a specialty coffee roastery based near Lecce in the southern Italian region of Apulia. Edoardo Quarta setup his own micro roastery and coffee laboratory within the family Quarta Caffè, a big player in commercial coffee in Apulia.

As a fourth generation roaster, Edo Quarta grew up playing around coffee bags, surrounded by the scents and aromas of roasting. Even so, he chose to follow a different career path and became a chef, working in several top international restaurants for a few years. Then a trip to Puerto Rico to visit coffee estates in 2013 ignited his interest in artisan and specialty coffee and he returned to roasting.
