For years we were impressed by rich culture of the Native Americans, captivated by the unusual, coloured and rich character of this culture, characterised especially by nature, loving and living. Later, while travelling around the world, we found in every country a small coffee shop which attracted us with its special environment. All these had something in common. Besides the beautiful aromas, we were captivated by the warm and good will of the visitors, who were enjoying the coffee and talking without hurry. All these experiences served as decisive factors in the creation of our coffee-shop concept – Tucano Coffee, based on an ethnic design, atmosphere and the culture of the coffee producing countries.
The motto of the coffee shop was inspired by era of birth of rock’n’roll and hippie subculture which stood out for its philosophy and people wanting to return to the purity of nature through love, pacifism and freethinking.
In order to develop and promote a culture of true, high quality, freshly roasted coffee, we was decided to work with 100% Specialty Arabica from the best regions and plantations around the world. In 2010 an exceptional and creative team gathered and work on the first coffee shop in Chisinau began. The Republic of Moldova being a transit country between East and West is a perfect place for the creation of a new concept. A place with a pleasant vibe and a good Feng Shui was chosen in the centre of an old city, and in November 2011 the doors of the first Tucano coffee shop opened.
Specialty Coffee – is a culture of growing, processing, roasting and making coffee beans. Being members of SCA we make coffee only from selected 100% Specialty Arabica, which grows at plantations in the highlands of Africa and Latin America, in ecologically-clean conditions, being hand-picked and processed without using chemicals. We roast it by ourselves in Tucano Coffee Roastery, and we are proud of using only freshly roasted beans! We roast in two styles: mono-sorts have lighter color during the roasting process and are meant for home or manual brewing. This way of roasting allows a bean to open up as much as possible and express all its flavours. Additionally, we offer an espresso blend which we roast darker and then make it in La Marzocco espresso machine. Tucano Espresso Mix – is a blend created by specialists of Tucano Coffee which allows us to make an exceptionally delicious espresso revealing all the complexity of coffee. On its base we make a huge range of coffee beverages giving our every guest an opportunity to find their favorite flavour.
ON THE MENU
Herb based tea: In our tea list we focused on herbal kinds of tea which are not only healthy but also very delicious. In winter they fill us with warmth, and in summer allay thirst, invigorate or soothe, depending on herbs you choose. Herb tea doesn’t harm central nervous system, doesn’t mingle vitamin absorption and suitable for people who cannot drink beverages with caffeine. Black tea: For those who prefer black tea we recommend Morocco tea, which consists of black tea leaves, orange, mint, cinnamon, cloves and a little bit of brown sugar. Cheesecake: The base for most of our cheesecakes is classic New York cheesecake which we cook from cottage cheese and cheese Buko. We also serve cold cheesecakes which are not heat treated. Our favourite cheesecakes are Oreo Cheesecake, Berry Cheesecake and Poppy Cheesecake. They are very different from each other; however every one of them is perfect with any coffee beverage.
We stand for creating a new type of coffee shops – the creative coffee spaces. For us they mean more than places where specialty coffee is served. Our creative coffee spaces inspire and transform our Team, Guests and Partners. They become more open, connected and creative; they become simpler and greener. Our vision is to open, by the end of 2020, 300 creative coffee spaces with best atmosphere in the world! Having the best atmosphere means for us a growth up to 9.5 on tucanorate.com. Likewise, we strive for winning the best café design award of restaurantandbardesignawards.com
