Italian Espresso National Institute

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On July 6, 1998 the Italian Espresso National Institute (Istituto Nazionale Espresso Italiano) was founded, with the specific goal of safeguarding and promoting the original Espresso. Today the Italian Espresso National Institute is one of the most important associations in the coffee market counting 39 member companies. It groups espresso-equipment producers and roasters which develop overall 700M revenues.

 

The Italian Espresso National Institute safeguards and promotes the original Espresso through a product certification. Each member company which complies with the certification requirements has the right to use the mark Espresso Italiano Certificato (Certified Italiano Espresso). To guarantee consumers who choose to drink espresso at coffee bars bearing this mark, a strict technical specification has been issued, requiring the use of a certified coffee blend, certified equipment (machine and grinder-dispenser) and licensed personnel. The compliance of the three conditions above is supervised by the experts of the Italian Espresso National Institute and by the auditors of the Certifying Body.

 

 

Activities include

Organising the INE’s first barista championship in the UK at London’s Royal Automobile Club for consumer, press and trade; including media relations before, during and after the event.
