About

A brewing system for coffee lovers. Try it for 30 days, if you don't like it, we'll take the machine back – no questions asked.

We believe life’s not complete without great coffee—and great coffee should be rich, distinctive, complex … but enjoying it should be simple. Life is short, so we don’t want to spend a lot of time making it every day. That’s why we decided to bring the cafe to you, by creating a system that provides the quality and variety you want, the convenience you need—at a fair price.   

We worked with an expert roaster to grind and package some of the best beans in the world into convenient, eco-friendly capsules. Using impeccable Swiss engineering, we produced a machine that works in perfect harmony with the capsules to produce coffee and espresso. You’ll get consistent, high-quality flavor, body and taste in every sip. And because sometimes we like to change it up, our machine can seamlessly switch to making tea (we make capsules for that as well). So now you can have cafe-quality coffee, espresso and tea anytime you want—even if you don’t have any time. 

A subscription based model so you never run out of coffee again. On the Renato's website, you will be able to mix & match whatever blends of espresso, coffee and tea you like and once a month we deliver it conveniently to your home. If your taste changes or you need to adjust the quantity of your orders, you can easily do that in your online profile as well. This way you will never run out of delicious hot beverages again.

The Renato's machine is the first one on the market to combine espresso, coffee and tea in one system. You can seamlessly switch between the beverages without any contamination. Our machine combines Swiss engineering with timeless design and creates consistent quality by the push of a button. It heats up in seconds, so you don't have to waste any time during a busy morning and get your caffeinated beverage in no time – completely mess free.

We source coffee beans of the highest quality, then we roast and grind them in a small town outside of Milano (history fact: Milano is the birth place of espresso!). The convenient capsules keep the coffee fresh and full of flavor. They are designed exclusively for the Renato's system, which means they fit perfectly into the machine and guarantee the best coffee experience possible – the perfect amount of pressure and water. Additionally, they are made with the absolute minimum of polypropylene which can be recycled.

Our milk frother lets you make hot or cold milk foam in as little as 90 seconds. Perfect for Latte Macchiatos, Cappuccinos, Hot Chocolates etc. The stainless steel container can be removed and put into the dishwasher.

Now, you don't have to just take our word for it. We sampled our prototypes to over 50 coffee aficionados all over the U.S. and here's what they had to say:

Unfortunately, lots of coffee on the market is overpriced or low quality. Renato's offers premium Italian coffee at a fair price by cutting out the middle man and delivering directly to you. This means you can get world class coffee quality and still go on that beach holiday you can't stop thinking about.

Hundred of drawings. Dozens of prototypes. Many, many coffee and espresso tastings (and we are still pretty mellow). A lot of meetings and FaceTime with our Swiss Engineers (calm) and Italian Coffee Experts (emotional) which included several trips to Italy (my favorite part) for product meetings.

So basically the last 18 months, we spent time engineering, building, drinking Espresso, creating, drinking more Espresso, testing, learning and improving....

Renato’s is led by founder and CEO Rene Stutz, a passionate espresso and coffee connoisseur who has held several positions as President/CEO of numerous, prestigious, premium home product brands, including Victorinox Swiss Army, Wuesthof, All-Clad/Waterford Wedgwood.

Risks and challenges

The largest risk factor to our project is timing. Delays.

We have a close relationship with our manufacturers and used them for similar product production before. We have completed custom tooling for all our products, finished our first pilot production run for the Prototypes of the Machines and Capsules and performed extensive testing, in house and in the field.

Still, given the inherent nature of manufacturing physical goods, unforeseen issues can arise. We have accounted for this with a conservative timeline plus added buffer. While we can’t control every issue that may pop up, we can and will promise to communicate transparently and frequently with all our backers.
