Tony's story

Both my wife and I grew up in Upstate New York where we met. After Renee Moved to Rochester for college, I naturally followed by moving to Rochester and I got a job working in a cafe in downtown Rochester. Soon both Renee and myself were working at the same cafe, and years later would both be managers of different locations of the same business. Working in the coffee industry each for 10 years before opening Fuego was instrumental in getting our start in coffee as well as feeding our budding love for the drink. Eventually we wanted to explore different facets of coffee, and we decided to buy our own coffee roaster and start a coffee tasting room in downtown Rochester.
