To Paolo, coffee is more than simply a heritage passed on to him by his father but an intense passion, fueled by the pursuit of technology to change how we experience each cup. The coffee itself is a distillation of the spiritual energy of all of the people involved in its production, and his machines provide a means to express that energy. He is also committed to sharing his interests and experiences with young people in order to convey his emotions for the work he does and for the industry. He treasures the time he can spend with his family, these days his three grandchildren in particular.
Outside of coffee, Paolo enjoys spending time with his family and friends. A personal endeavor of his that he started with Francesco Bernasconi is the Second Chance Project with the Bollate Penitentiary near the Dalla Corte headquarters. Partnering with inmates, he provides people with an opportunity to refurbish Dalla Corte Evolution espresso machines and experience the dignity of work to transform their lives.
