“One of life’s great joys is sitting in an Italian café with good friends and enjoying a great cup of coffee or espresso. I challenged my friends at La Colombe to create a selection of coffees that captures these wonderful moments.

They have searched the world to find the right blends and then roasted them with expert craftsmanship to achieve that special Italian taste. I hope you will be as pleased as I am with the result. We can’t always be in Rome or Venice, but now we can all be a little closer every day!” -Mario Batali

Additional Information

About: WHERE IT STARTED

Todd Carmichael and JP Iberti founded La Colombe on a simple but profound premise: America Deserves Better Coffee. By sourcing and roasting with care, and borrowing on ancient and modern coffee traditions from around the world, the two have built a successful company and an elevated coffee experience for Americans. Through 20 years of hard work and innovation, the two have made sure that experience is shared in cafes and homes across the country.

TODD CARMICHAEL, CEO AND CO-FOUNDER

Todd Carmichael has lived and breathed coffee for over three decades. By pressing the limits of taste, service, and most notably, coffee sourcing – visiting the world’s developing countries to responsibly gather the planet’s best coffee – Todd has converted the nation’s culinary elite into La Colombe drinkers. Along the way, he has made his company the country’s leading coffee roaster while managing it philanthropically.

Fueled by Todd’s passion to push the U.S. coffee scene forward, La Colombe sits at the forefront of the ethical trade movement and regularly dabbles in new terrain, inventing ground-breaking new brewing devices and beverages, such as the first ever Draft Latte. He is also the host of two Travel Channel series, Dangerous Grounds and Uncommon Grounds.

A passionate crusader for social and ecological causes, Todd has a decades-long history of undertaking self-supported treks into challenging environments. He’s visited nearly half of the world’s countries, crossed large parts of the Sahara Desert on foot, as well as the Gobi Desert, Namib Desert, and others. He is also the first American to solo trek across Antarctica from the coast to the South Pole, establishing a world record speed of 39 days, 7 hours, and 49 minutes.

Married to singer songwriter Lauren Hart, the couple have expanded their family by adopting three beautiful girls and a baby boy from Ethiopia. Todd is also an author and contributor to the Huffington Post and Esquire Magazines.

JP IBERTI, PRESIDENT & CO-FOUNDER

JP Iberti is the craftsman behind the company's urban-industrial café spaces, and artisan breads and pastries. Trained in a classical Italian café setting and transplanted into Seattle’s emergent 1980's coffee scene, JP became entranced with the craft of roasting coffees beautifully. He abandoned an early career as a pilot to pursue the other machine that fascinated him—the coffee roaster. To this day, JP says that roasting coffee requires many of the same skills—attention, care, finesse—required to properly operate an aircraft.

Working for his father at France’s top produce distributor and growing up in the restaurant industry, JP had an idea of what it would take to make La Colombe into America’s leading culinary coffee. His experience in the high-pressure restaurant environment allowed La Colombe to quickly gain ground with some of the country's top chefs, resulting in a large and successful wholesale program.

To observe JP’s reverence for great craftsmanship, one need look no further than La Colombe's flagship café and bakery in the Fishtown neighborhood of Philadelphia. Industrial, modern design elements fit seamlessly alongside a custom wood-fired oven, a vintage espresso machine, and an antique rum distilling operation. The crown jewel in a string of beautiful cafes, La Colombe Fishtown is a physical expression of JP's dedication to aesthetic beauty, craft-urban culture, and timeless quality.
