Kimbo - il piacere che ci unisce

A pleasure everyone talks about

Ambassadors of a unique pleasure


The Cuccuma, the old Neapolitan coffee pot, the copper jug with which the coffee was made not only in Naples but all over Italy in the nineteenth century. Symbol of a culture and of the event that took place in Naples from 24 to 30 November: the first Cuccuma week, a week to again taste the pleasure of filtered coffee and celebrate the old Neapolitan coffee pot. At Caffetteria in Piazza dei Martiri – Kimbo Coffee Embassy, we had the chance to admire an exhibit of old advertising prints and to attend the literary, theatrical, film presentations and notable gastronomic events during the entire week.
Amongst the engagements in the calendar, there are a number of Coffee Hours, Cuccuma Shows and visits by distinguished guests. Among others, Akinari "Pasquale" Makishima, the Japanese pizza maker who won a world championship; he collected 150 Cuccumas at the Coffee Embassy showing the mark of Kimbo for his pizza restaurant in Osaka.

On Sunday November 30, the key event took place, when all holders of a typical cuccuma had the chance to exhibit their cuccuma on the tables of the Embassy. They had the opportunity to submit their exhibits to a jury chaired by the architect Riccardo Dalisi who, with respect to the cuccuma, developed design projects awarded with the Golden Compass. The event was established with the aim of sharing history and passion for the Neapolitan coffee, from music to cinematography, from architecture to advertising prints. A world in which coffee is not only a product, but a pleasure shared and a central figure in a culture of aromas and flavours appreciated all over the world.

Kimbo, the symbol of the Neapolitan espresso was the official coffee of the 2014 Group of Taste Award of the Foreign Press in Italy, which in 2014 took place at an exclusive gala dinner on November 25, at the Eataly congress centre in Rome.

Symbol of the Neapolitan espresso, Kimbo has thus become the partner of an event which, since 2004, illustrates the value and the authenticity of the products of the “Made in Italy” cuisine through the words of the foreign press in Italy. In the context of an exclusive showcase which intends to promote the excellence of the Italian tradition at an international level, Kimbo thus interprets the particularity of the espresso, the uniqueness of its taste and the authenticity of its history: elements which permitted the company to establish itself as second player in Italy in the retail sector in the course of more than 50 years of business.

During the evening, the Neapolitan company delighted the palate of its guests by presenting its unmistakable blends interpreted in the compositions of “Kimbo Coffee Specialist” Carmine Castellano, cappuccino world champion who invented 42 different ways to interpret coffee.

Ranging from the authentic Italian espresso to an appetising and tasty coffee cream, Kimbo promises to offer a late evening of pure pleasure under the auspices of relaxation and delicacy.

On occasion of the 1st BarItalia, a travelling research laboratory dedicated to blending and food, Kimbo will be the main sponsor and endorser. The event takes place at four events during which the partner companies will field with their own team of professionals to debate the topic proposed by the event organiser. The 1st fixture’s topic, “Innovating. Feeding the business.” will be an occasion to revisit the ideas of the Expo 2015, such as innovation in the field of food &beverage, and the capacity of the professionals in the sector to develop proposals which may attract a wider audience.

During 2014 the first two events took place in Milan, in Lambretto and in Padua at Tecno&food.

Future events for 2015 are:
– January 19, 2015, Rimini Sigep
– February 23, 2015, Naples
– May 2015, final gala in Milan
Kimbo will attend with a fixed location inside the Bar of BarItalia, which is intended to be used as a coffee tasting area.


Innovation, tradition and passion for coffee. In one word: the Cuccuma, the old Neapolitan coffee pot that has made the flavour of real Neapolitan coffee famous. Under the auspices of continuity and technology, in 2015 Kimbo wants to combine the Neapolitan coffee culture tradition and innovation, relaunching the Cuccuma on the market in a revised and modern form.

With the Kimbo Cuccuma , you can prepare not only a traditional product (the classic Neapolitan coffee) but also an American style Black Coffee, in line with international trends and respecting the evolving tastes of the international coffee consumer.

Already present in Milan, today Kimbo Cuccuma is getting ready to conquer international markets in Japan and UK to export a world of flavors and coffee culture. It also stands in line to become an international central figure and a standard-bearer of a culture of aromas and flavors appreciated all over the world. In fact, the Kimbo Cuccuma will be present at the major international events of the industry in 2015 as ISM Cologne, Tuttofood in Milan and for the opening of the Embassy of Kimbo coffee in London.
