Like many immigrants from the Mediterranean and Europe who came to America in the early 20th Century, George K. Callas hoped for a prosperous future, but he also felt an urgent need to maintain the traditions of the past. With ingenuity and hard work, he and his family began distributing small packages of Venizelos Coffee to newly-arrived immigrants at New York Harbor. By providing the comforting taste of home packaged under the familiar name of the great Greek statesman, Eleftherios Venizelos, the coffee offered immigrants a way to solidify old world traditions on the shores of the new world. Today, the Callas family remains dedicated not only to the art and craft of coffee manufacturing, but to the quality social experience of coffee drinking. Manufactured in the US and distributed and enjoyed throughout the world, Venizelos beans are painstakingly selected, carefully roasted, and stone-ground to perfection in the unique demitasse style. Old World flavor for a modern generation of coffee connoisseurs.
