Renaldo and Ezilda Torre brought over recipes for hand-crafted syrups from Lucca, Italy to North Beach, San Francisco, California in 1925. Their first flavors were Grenadine, Lemon, Anisette, Orgeat, and Tamarindo. Ezilda became one of the US’ first female rectifiers of distilled spirits in the US when the Prohibition ended. She was responsible for keeping Torani going through the Great Depression and World War II.
The company started to focus on the specialty coffee industry when their Vanilla Syrup was used in the first flavored latte in 1982, to great success.
