The Immigrant’s Son espresso was founded in 2005 by Andrew Meo – son of the Italian immigrant, Antonino Meo. Antonino arrived in New Zealand with a suitcase, a passion for good food and good coffee. Naturally Andrew inherited this passion and his expertise in the industry laid the foundations for The Immigrant’s Son espresso.
Today’s head roaster claims Andrew passed on to him the secret philosophy of the Italian coffee Gods: ‘modo di vivere’ – ‘a way of life’. Today our small team live and work by this philosophy and pay our respects to the powers that be by producing the finest espresso The Immigrant’s Son can make.
