With over a century of life, CRASTAN Caffè has its roots in the traditions of the city of La Spezia and the Ligurian hinterland.
Established at the end of the 19th century as a grocery and spice shop, at the end of the 30s of the 20th century it specialized in coffee roasting.
At that time, the "Bar Crastan" in via Chiodo, later destroyed by a plane bomb during the Second World War in the spring of 1943, was an exclusive meeting place for the elite of Royal Navy Officers and members of the Royal House. A sumptuous living room with mirrors, stuccoes, mahogany and waiters was the fashion in La Spezia society.
With the end of the war and the reconstruction of the Italian economic fabric, the new commercial needs gave rise to the current company.
Today CRASTAN Caffè, taken over in 1981 by the Costa family who gave new impetus to commercial strategies, is a very modern coffee roasting company that stands on an area of 12,000 square meters with a 3,000 square meter factory.
