How Do I Choose A Wholesale Coffee Supplier?

When choosing a wholesale coffee supplier, it’s important to look further than just the coffee.

For instance, does the wholesale coffee supplier fulfil all of your needs? So, if you’re wondering ‘how do I choose a wholesale coffee supplier?‘ keep on reading!

For that, we have to start at the beginning, what is it that you are looking for? Are you looking for someone cheap and cheerful? If so, there are suppliers available who roast commodity-grade coffee very dark and in large quantities, resulting in a lower price but also a lower quality in the cup too. Or are you looking for the best freshly roasted coffee with an amazing service and support network? These are the questions you need to ask when wondering ‘how do I choose a wholesale coffee supplier?’

Let’s start with the coffee, and then we can head on from there. The coffee that we source and roast is what’s known as speciality coffee.

Speciality coffee is cared for and nurtured throughout its life from being hand-picked and hand-sorted to being hand-roasted in small batches by coffee roasters like us.

Speciality coffee is sweet and smooth, with no ‘bad’ or ‘undesirable’ flavours. With this in mind, when we roast, we don’t need to over roast to hide any impurities within the coffee beans. We keep our roasts lighter, enabling us to caramelise the sugars and avoid any bitter or burnt notes.

We roast fresh in small batches multiple times each week. In turn, when the coffee arrives with you, it is as fresh as possible and therefore as tasty as possible too!

Why do you hand-deliver our coffee?

Wherever possible, we will deliver it to you by hand. If not, we will post your wholesale coffee order free of charge instead.

Hand delivering gives you the opportunity to ask any questions that arise, ask us to check the calibration of your machine and grinder or, just have a good old chin wag about harry potter and why bananas are yellow!

If you are a little further afield from the roastery, to keep our carbon footprint down, we don’t hand deliver as often. Don’t panic; however; you will still be able to ask us Harry Potter related questions, just a little less frequently. In the meantime, the chimps are always on the end of the phone and happy to talk.

Free Training

We offer unlimited FREE training for all of our wholesale coffee customers. For existing members of staff who have been using a coffee machine before, a refresher is always useful. Coffee training is super useful for new staff members too.

Our A4 posters give some background information on the farmers and workers that help harvest your coffee. Great to have on the counter or dotted around for customers to read. It’s often the case that people don’t get to read about the coffee they are drinking, so having this information available will put you ahead of your competitors.
