Specialty Java Inc.
Specialty Java Inc. is a specialty coffee roaster founded in 2002. We produce artisan roasted, packaged and bulk coffee. The Specialty Java brand fresh roasts then ships within hours specialty coffee directly to consumers and to wholesale coffee clients across the USA such as coffee shops, cafes, bistros. We produce our Specialty Java brand and our wildly popular Jo Coffee brand, plus many private label brands. Our Jo Coffee has become one of Amazon's highest rated organic coffee brands with over 10,000 plus positive reviews. In addition to our artisan hand-crafted micro-roastery, we utilize five outsourced contract co-packing plants, for specialized packaging requirements (recyclable k-cups, compostable k-cups; Nespresso compatible capsules, portion packs) and to provide production support for scale-up growth.
It Starts Here
We source only the finest, top 2% specialty grade Arabica green coffee, from around the world. Before we ever import our specialty coffee beans, they have passed the expert analysis and cupping palates of one of the world's best specialty coffee importers. The green coffee we source and purchase is far more expensive than lower grade coffee. Many large national brands, use a lower so-called "premium" grade coffee, a term common (a bit misleading) in the coffee industry. We simply avoid cheap, low grade coffees, which contributes to our highly rated and popular specialty coffee.
Not all coffee is created equal. We are first and foremost artisan craft roasters and strive for perfection in every hand-crafted artisan roast. Of course we are proud of our quality, but it is the opinion of the end consumer that actually matters. For instance, one of our wholesale coffee shop clients was voted by their own customers, in a CBS/WCCO TV online poll, as the "Best Coffee Shop" in the entire state. Our own trademarked Jo Coffee brand has become one of Amazon's highest rated organic coffee brands nationwide, with over 10000+ five atar coffee reviews.
Our trademarked Jo Coffee brand is now one of Amazon's highest rated organic coffee brands nationwide, with 10000+ five star coffee reviews. Consumer's opinions about our specialty coffee is what really counts. Amazon's open-door policy for artisan brands has been a huge game-changer for our business. In Amazon's open-market format, high quality products rise to the top. Because of our phenomenal success on Amazon, we are truly blessed to be able to choose to work only with select and fair distributors in other markets. Amazon's customer-centric model has changed the world, and the big chains are taking notice! Visit our Jo Coffee website.
VISIT JO COFFEE
We do not even have a sales staff. We are truly blessed to have grown by quality, reputation, and word-of-mouth referrals. The founder's (Kevin Kapaun) passion for coffee started as a hobby, home roasting coffee for friends and family, but was headed for something a bit larger. He roasted some Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee for his friends, Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame bass player Larry Graham and his wife Tina, as an anniversary present. Larry said "creating coffee is your art" and encouraged Kevin to start a roastery. He was his first customer. Today, in addition to an artisan micro roastery, Specialty Java Inc. produces several in-house brands plus many private label coffee brands in multiple roasting plants.
Specialty Grade Arabica Coffee
It should be no surprise we recommend using the highest quality specialty coffee. Specialty grade coffee beans are the highest grade level, even higher than premium grade, a common and somewhat deceptive term used in the industry. Large, well-known commercial brands, regularly use cheap low-grade coffee beans to increase profits. While we do produce conventional coffees, we do recommend organic coffee. USDA Certified Organic coffee is grown on farms, according to strict standards set up by the United States Department of Agriculture, with no chemical contamination. Organic growing methods also benefit the environment. All USDA Certified Organic farming and subsequent roasting operations are inspected annually for compliance.
