Torani - A Retrospective
The flavor movement, often referred to as the "beverage rennaissance", has changed the beverage world. It all started with Rinaldo and Ezilda Torre's introduction of the Italian soda over 75 years ago and continues to define modern drink forms to this day.

The first use of flavored syrup can be traced back to the North Beach neighborhood of San Francisco in 1925. Some of the 20th century's most acclaimed artists, from Jack Kerouac to William Burroughs, have called North Beach home. And Rinaldo and Ezilda Torre were no exception. Using Italian syrup recipes of their homeland, they began blending Torani syrups in the back of their North Beach grocery store. Mixing their rich flavorful syrups with sparkling water and ice, they introduced the classic Italian soda to local café owners. The overwhelming response made it clear the world was ready for a new way of drinking.

It was in the early 80's that the flavor movement started to gain mass appeal with the introduction of the flavored latte. While sitting in San Francisco's landmark Caffe Trieste, "Brandy" Brandenburger- a coffee industry veteran- was inspired to experiment with Torani Italian syrups, espresso and steamed milk. And thus, the first flavored caffe latte was created, changing the course of espresso history forever.

Torani has been a part of café culture for decades. The popularity of specialty drinks and the support of our retailers has helped make it the #1 specialty syrup brand. Millions of Americans—and now cafe goers in international cities around the world—enjoy Torani in their favorite beverages. And Torani continues to stay on the creative edge with new product lines and ideas. After all, you never know where the next flavored caffe latte will appear, but you can be sure Torani will be there.

Chocolate is an important ingredient in many moles. Chocolate and vanilla often add a twist to meats. Sounds weird but it really works.
