Who are L'unico?
Since arriving from Italy in 1909, the Inzani-Rapacioli family has established some of London's landmark cafes, including Islington's Leo's - still busy trading today- and Peter's Cafe in Ivor Place, famously frequented by actors and musicians including Jean Shrimpton and the Rolling Stones through the 50's and 60's.
In 1991, the Inzani-Rapacioli family branched out, founding L'UNICO to supply London with their Milanese-style Musetti coffee. Now in the hands of its third generation, L'unico is still very much a local, East End family affair, delivering Musetti's classic Italian style in a uniquely personal fashion.

Food Critics Choice
TimeOut London – ‘Arguably the best coffee in North London’
The Daily Telegraph – ‘Please make sure you don’t skip the coffee, which is excellent. It is rare to find an espresso so rich and fragrant that it tastes delicious without sugar’
The Independent – ‘The coffee is outstandingly good; my espresso was so strong and short, it was absorbed by a sugar lump, rather than the other way around’
Evening Standard – ‘Remarkably fine espresso’
Waterside Inn – ‘We use L’unico Musetti espresso coffee at The Waterside Inn because it provides our guests with the blend they’d expect from us. The aroma, the quality, the consistency – its superb coffee.’ – Michel Roux

Musetti Coffee has extremely strong ethical trading links, trading fairly in their green bean purchases.
We are a specialist coffee roaster, part of the CSC organization in Italy, Certified Specialty Coffee roasters, which are an elite organization, who only purchase from certified plantations that are checked by independent auditors, that the conditions for both the growers & the coffee are high.
We purchase high-grade coffee, which we can confirm, by our certificates, as such this coffee is purchased at a premium, and we are main supporters of small specialty growers who without our help would become obsolete
We also send out Independent & internal auditors out to the plantations we purchase from to guarantee conditions
We also have blends certified by the UK Fair Trade mark
