first and foremost, we are a wholesale specialty coffee roaster. while we certainly enjoy running our two retail locations, our true passion lies in helping our wholesale accounts succeed in their business. we’ve learned a lot in the past fifteen years, and we’d love to share our experiences with you. here’s what we offer:
we focus primarily on single farm and small cooperative coffees. our goal is to shorten the distance between the grower and our customers. We do this by telling the stories of the coffees we roast, by developing relationships with importers, exporters, and growers, and by developing open communication along the entirety of the supply chain. we share this information openly with our customers, hoping that you will, in turn, share it with your customers.
in addition, we are one of a small number of ohio roasters certified to produce organic coffee by the ohio ecological food and farm association. we often look beyond labels and certifications when sourcing coffee, but we understand this is important to our customers.
in addition to providing our customers with high quality coffee, we serve another important role: consultants. with almost 40 years of industry experience amongst our three owners, we’re well equipped to help accounts understand what they need to do to succeed. we offer consulting in the following areas: barista training, human resources, finances, site selection, cafe layout, equipment selection, and more. most importantly, any consulting fees accumulated can be earned back via rebates on future coffee purchases, making our consulting essentially free.
after the shop has been designed, and the equipment selected, our services do not stop. we consider our relationship with our wholesale customers to be an ongoing partnership. we’ll be available to provide as much or as little support as you need, including visiting your location to test extractions, monitor equipment, and to simply offer support.
besides consulting and ongoing support, we also provide equipment sales and service, representing such manufacturers as la marzocco, modbar, fetco, mahlkonig, marco, bunn, and more. our pricing is extremely competitive, and we’re factory certified for repair by both la marzocco and fetco.
in addition to coffee, we carry and distribute a number of products critical to the operation of a retail coffee shop, including a full line of monin sauces, syrups and fruit smoothies as well as third street chai, pacific barista series soy, almond, and coconut milk, filters, cold toddy brewing containers, urnex cleaning products, coffee to go boxes, etc. in addition, we provide wholesale price discounts on all of the various coffee-related equipment and supplies we sell in our retail stores.
we provide free delivery in central ohio (franklin county and licking county) with a 10# minimum coffee order. delivery minimums outside franklin and licking county are considered on a case-by-case basis. we ship coffees outside of the central ohio area on tuesday of each week, and shipping is free for 20# minimum coffee orders.
all our wholesale customers make a commitment to coffee quality, just as we make that solemn commitment to our farmers and to you. If you join the line, we ask that you make that same commitment to maintaining fresh stock, and grinding, brewing and serving with quality equipment and standards.
our company and its staff all embrace twin passions of coffee and community. For us, community is the local place where our coffee is prepared and served. but it is also the local place where the coffee is grown and harvested. taking care of those communities, making those communities better places to live and work, that is our mission.
we are still learning about coffee, and we do everything we can to make sure that our wholesale and retail customers are provided the opportunity to share in that knowledge, and learn about the long road from seed to cup.
