“Pinos Café” is located in Mountain Ash and is run by Andrew and Marina Carpanini, the third generation of Carpaninis to serve the people of the Cynon Valley since 1926. It all began when Andrew’s grandfather, Andrea Carpanini, came over from Bardi in Italy like many other Italians, and in 1926 opened the “Corner Café” in Glancynon Terrace, Abercynon.
Later in 1946, his two sons, Pino (Giuseppe) and Maurice (Maurizio) joined the business and in 1954 a second shop was opened in Mountain Ash, run by the eldest son Pino who later went on to marry Maria and have two sons. They continued to run the café as a family business until the untimely death of Pino some years ago.
Our coffee beans are specially imported from Italy to make the finest cups of coffee in the Valleys.
One or two shots of rich full bodied coffee. Intensely aromatic served in a small measure with a head of golden brown ‘crema’.
Hot creamy milk through espresso with a head of rich foam. Served in a tall glass.
Fabulous hot whipped chocolate poured over a 2 shot espresso topped with whipped cream & roll wafer biscuit.
A two shot espresso with fresh hot water for a really good long black coffee.
Creamy rich milk foam poured through espresso coffee sprinkled with cinnamon, chocolate, nutmeg or even all three.
For the bambini’s. Warm frothed milk, with a little cocoa powder. A lot more good for them than a can of pop.
