"It is said blending and roasting coffee is an art. We agree. It is also said some art is liked better than others. To that our clients agree. If you own or are opening a business that sells coffee, remember it's the opinion of your end-consumer that really counts.

Consider; one of our coffee shop clients was voted (CBS/WCCO TV Poll) by their customers as the "Best Coffee House" in the entire state; or our own Jo Coffee® brand is one of Amazon's highest rated organic coffee brands, with over 5000+ positive coffee reviews, and is growing fast.

At the end of the day it's the end-consumer that votes with their coffee reviews and their wallet. Consumer respond to high quality.

Thank you for considering us as your wholesale coffee supplier."

Specialty Java Inc.
Your Wholesale Coffee Roasters

Specialty Java Brand: Artisan Hand Crafted Roasting
  • Artisan Roasters: We are first and foremost artisan craft coffee roasters. This is all we do. We are proud members of the professional Roaster's Guild (2016 Roaster's Challenge Winning Team!!!) and the Specialty Coffee Association.
  • Fresh Roasted On Demand: All our Specialty Java brand coffees listed on this website are hand-crafted in our micro roastery by artisan roasters, delivering perfection for coffee shops, bistros, bakeries, finer restaurants and cafes. In our micro roastery, your specialty grade, wholesale coffee beans are fresh roasted for you on demand then shipped same day or next day!
  • Fast & Free Shipping: Standard Wholesale Accounts (including Standard Private Label Coffee) receive free shipping to mainland states on 25 lb orders or larger to one address. Minimum order is 25 lbs. (Any combo Bulk & CasePaks) Delivery is 1 - 3 days to most states. (We do not provide drop shipping services directly to consumers on behalf of wholesale clients.)
  • Limited Edition Reserves: Our highly popular Limited Edition Reserves category, offers the coffee business entrepreneur new, unique, and special coffees every month while retaining your regular offerings. We help differentiate your business for success and appeal to your discerning coffee customers.
  • Specialty Grade Certfied Organic and Conventional Coffee: We do not even sell lower grade coffee beans which are very common to large coffee companies. Our exclusively gourmet, specialty grade wholesale coffee beans will have passed the expert analysis and cupping tastes of the world's best specialty coffee buyers. This is a big reason why we have many thousands of coffee reviews. The highest grades of green coffee do cost more. Cheap, low grade, coffees are very easy to find in the marketplace. If your goal is just to find the cheapest coffee we are not a fit for you.
  • Free Private Labeling: Displaying your own private branded product label will promote your identity and bring your customers back again and again. When you private label, we can simply replace our label with your custom private label, so it is branded to your business. We offer full color graphics labels and over 25 bag color options for free private labeling, with low minimums at wholesale prices.

    If you are seeking fully branded custom pre-printed coffee bags, we recommend Roastar.com. We also include free USDA Certified Organic registration for any required private label organic items. And no set up charges!

    We also offer eco-friendly, recyclable, private label single serve packaging for Keurig K-Cup® 1.0 and 2.0 brewers. Our Starter Program has very low run minimums and with zero setup fees. Perfect for environmentally-conscious smaller businesses that want to participate in the fast growing single serve market. Click Apply below or call 1.888.586.JAVA x102 for questions.
  • Fair Trade Certified® and Rainforest Alliance Certified®:

    Fair Trade practices help farming families across Latin America, Africa and Asia to improve the quality of life in their communities. (Fair Trade Licensed Partner Listings)

    The Rainforest Alliance works to conserve biodiversity and ensure sustainable livelihoods by transforming land-use practices, business practices and consumer behavior.
  • USDA Certifed Organic, Non-GMO, Espresso & Brewed Coffee: Organic coffee is the fastest growing segment of the specialty coffee industry. We are a USDA Certified Organic facility. Certified Organic coffee is also NON-GMO. An organic strategy could differentiate your business against the "Starbucks" of the world.

We have 6 other espresso offerings including a Certified Organic Decaf Espresso.

Free espresso of your choice too! We are also Authorized Distributors for Bunn Commercial coffee equipment. Our goal is to be your roaster so we sell great equipment at discounted prices for our clients. You are NOT subject to a restrictive agreement that loaner equipment companies require. It is ALWAYS cheaper to own your own equipment and have freedom of choice.

  • Larger Volume Custom Wholesale Wholesale Accounts: Minimums range from 120 lbs per SKU to 600 lbs SKU, depending on your specific packaging format requirements. You need to have an established successful sales & distribution channel before we will consider your application. Start-up brands, without an established strong distribution channel, are usually not a fit for our larger scale production. We regularly get requests for large volume pricing only to discover the request is not from a bona fide established business.

    It takes considerable time and effort to build a large Custom Wholesale Account pricing program. We will need, in detail, the nature of your business, your current marketplace, packaging requirments, initial order quantity, estimated annual sales volumes, etc.  Vague wholesale account applications may not be considered.
