I need equipment, but I have no idea what I should get. Can you help?
Yes! With awesome equipment, you have the right tools to ensure the coffee tastes great. Knowing this, we try to make the finest equipment accessible to you and will recommend the options that best suit your business’ needs. Our equipment expertise is rooted in extensive testing, as we’ve put many espresso machines and grinders through rigorous evaluations to ensure we can help you decide which would work best for you. Additionally, we have developed relationships with several manufacturers and are able to offer competitive pricing on equipment.
I have a restaurant and want a simple, high quality coffee program. Can you help me?
Absolutely. Our coffee program can be tailored to fit the specific requirements for your restaurant. Contact us for more details.
I heard you're fussy, do you have “requirements” for your wholesale customers?
Simply put, we want to work with any cafe or restaurant that is willing to put in the time and effort to deliver great coffee. No real experience with coffee is necessary. It’s our job to equip you with the knowledge! And most importantly, it’s our job to make this process as easy and painless as possible. That means each setup recommendation is tailored to fit a specific scenario. The equipment and process we recommend for use in a restaurant will be very different than, for example, a cafe with more focus on coffee as an offering.

You say that you’re different than other roasters, but most roasters have access to pretty much the same raw coffee, right??
It’s true that 99% of roasters buy coffee through brokers and have access to more-or-less the same coffee. However, our model is quite different. We aren’t satisfied with merely finding great coffee. We play an active role in helping producers improve quality over time. Just call us the 1%.
My business is all about local. Why should I order from you if you’re not in my city?
That’s a fantastic question. To answer it, it’s important to first define what local means. Coffee only grows in the tropics, so although we are fiercely local in many aspects, the very nature of importing coffee is that it is a part of the global marketplace.
Ever since we started roasting and sourcing, our business model is to work directly on the ground with coffee producers to evolve quality collaboratively. So by ordering coffee from us, you are, in fact, getting just about as close to the source of coffee as possible!
Can I have your coffee in my office?
Yes. We have a full service office program that can cater to offices of all sizes. Please contact us, we can help!
