THE 30s AND 40s

It was in 1930 that Angelo Monti, with great boldness and entrepreneurial spirit, took over Moka Efti, a company active throughout Europe in the importation and roasting of coffee. His goal was to distribute coffee throughout the Italian territory, and from here, thanks to great focus and targeted investments, exporting this product to Europe, as well as the rest of the world.

THE 50s AND 60s

Following the difficult post-war period, Moka Efti Moka Efti started to expand throughout the Italian territory within the exclusive HO.RE.CA. industry.The latter aims at catering professionals, in which the company has specialised and where there is greater attention to product quality and service standards.

THE 60s AND 70s

Angelo was replaced by his son Giorgio. It is thanks to his company management skills that the Moka Efti brand became increasingly consolidated, reaching even the major islands. Not yet satisfied, the entrepreneur decided to conquer the Swiss market as well. In fact, in 1960 he started to sell Moka Efti coffee in this country.

After a few years, a totally independent production plant was set up in Mendrisio, where Moka Efti coffee is still produced and sold in Switzerland.


The ever-growing distribution of Moka Efti coffee to the four cantons in Switzerland, led to the doubling in size of the production plant in Mendrisioin 2000s. This included a workshop and a team dedicated to the technical assistance of espresso coffee machines of the Moka Efti clientele in Ticino.
Having important and consolidated agreements with partners dedicated to the after-sales service for espresso coffee machine equipment also in the French and Swiss cantons, guarantees Moka Efti customers prompt assistance in case of need, seven days a week. Being dedicated toHo.Re.Ca also means being able to solve any technical issue that could prevent our customers to serve an excellent product at all times.


MOKA EFTI in Mendrisio, specialised in the importation, roasting and sale of coffee in the Ho.Re.Ca. sector, has become, throughout the whole of Switzerland, one of the leading brands in this specific sector. This is thanks to having Agents and collaborators in the main cities, who are dedicated to generating sales of Moka Efti coffee and, above all, all-round assistance to our customers. Green coffee is imported directly from their countries of origin where we have particular preferential relationships with some farms which specialise in high quality crops.

For the past few years we have expanded our range. In fact, we entered the sector of single-dose coffee pods and capsules with a wide range of fine blends, able to satisfy all tastes. Furthermore, for those who want to enjoy a good cup of coffee within the walls of their home or workplace, we also offer machines for home and office use.
