About Us

Your satisfaction is our best reward

“His Majesty the Coffee” is a specialty micro-roastery established in 2013 Italy, quality and innovation-oriented, one of the first Italian roastery dealing only with speciality coffee.

The founder Paolo Scimone has a complex personality, his mind is always oriented toward innovation and is soul is rooted in Italian soil with all it’s creativity and tradition. With his staff every week he dedicates time to research and development.

The passion for England and the Royal family is already evident from its name but under the surface, a pure Italian heart beats in its chest. This duality is well represented also in HMC house blends: Londinium and Modoetia.

LONDINIUM

The first blend is dedicated to London and is made by Paolo to please the most demanding palates used to light roasted third wave coffee style.

MODOETIA

The second blend is dedicated to Paolo’s hometown (from the Latin name of Monza) and is prepared and approved by Lady Damiana, the holy mother of Paolo in her role of representative of typical Italian taste.

PAOLO

FOUNDER & HEAD ROASTER

Paolo is younger than you think, after a strong adolescent infatuation for coffee, he only got to know it deeply when he moved to London in 2005 working as a barista. From 2007 to 2009 he took over a coffee shop in Monza and later he worked 3 years for a roaster based in Varese and finally in 2013 he gave birth to His Majesty the Coffee.

Along the years he found time to study and obtain a few certifications like Arabica and Robusta QGrader.

He is co-founder of Italian Roasting School.

A part from roasting his own coffee, he is often travelling around the world to train a new generation of roasters, all fans of pizza and fish and chips.

Much needed things to know about Paolo:

– he would eat pizza and gorgonzola all day long.

– he is so charming that he gained Mr. Italy title ad honorem.

– In his opinion roasting coffee on an electric machine is like going to Oktoberfest and bring a six pack of Moretti Italian beer, simply unacceptable!

– he makes jokes of everything except about coffee quality.

– he would cheat on his partner only for Queen Elizabeth II.

BARBARA

ADMINISTRATION AND BACK OFFICE

Barbara is an eclectic person (how can she bear Paolo otherwise?!) with a solid background in food and beverage industry. She took her degree in Italian and Latin Literature, but her true love was her Master at University of Gastronomic Science. She is a gastronome, converted to coffee.

She is a food and beverage expert, worked in R&D and communication in a roastery and in an artisan distillery.

Much needed things about Barbara:

– She has a serious case of wanderlust.

– Piedmontese by birth and in the soul, recently adopted by Bergamo.

– Once a year, at least, she has to go to the Langhe & Roero and fall in love again.

– Naturally blond and smart…what’s your super power?

– She is aunt of 5 marvellous little brats.

– She is also a pastry chef: making a cake is giving an instant of happiness.

– She would like to have a donkey.

– She was a dancer and always will be.

DOMENICO

PRODUCTION AND LOGISTIC

Here is Domenico, he is natural blond, eclectic and passionate about coffee.

Domenico started his career very young in agriculture, after this experience he entered the metal-mechanical industry as a machine operator first and later as a quality checker. Over the past few years, under Paolo’s influence, he discovered the world of specialty coffee and got so much passionate about it that he decided to be part of it.

Much needed things to know about Domenico:

– He grows his own vegetable garden and he likes to cook what he cultivates.
– Give him some meat and he will grill it to perfection.

– He rejects cheese as food, nevertheless he accepted to work with Paolo, a renewed Gorgonzola cheese lover.

– After coffee, his favourite beverage is Corona beer, that he only drinks chilled with a lemon slice in it.

– He is often called Handy Mimmo, he is world champion of IKEA furniture assembly.

– He is tidy, accurate and he likes to clean up.

For all women out there, the only flaw he has is that he is happily married.
