When Gino Saccone (1937-2001) got fed up with the poor coffee on offer, he closed down his men’s wear shop and opened Gino’s Trattoria in 1983.
Since that time and through the heady days of the America’s Cup, many cafes have come and gone but one constant has been Gino’s on the corner of Market Street and South Terrace, the gateway to Fremantle’s famous Cappucino Strip.
Why has Gino’s lasted where so many others have failed? There are a number of factors - but the biggest one is consistently good coffee that is consistently well made.
It all starts with the coffee. Through many years of trial and error in blending and sourcing beans, Gino’s now produces it own custom blend of coffees. It is selected from the finest beans on offer and blended to produce a consistently good coffee.
Gino’s produces its coffee in a variety of sizes and styles ranging from one kilo bags of beans (suitable for cafes) to a variety of 250g packs for customers to enjoy at home (suitable for either a machine and plunger).
