It is written that early one morning in the land of Arabia Felix, a weary goatherd named Kaldi awoke to look for his wayward goats who had not returned from the night before. After an exhausting search, he found them dancing with glee near a dark-leafed shrub with shiny red berries. Kaldi soon realized that it was the red berries from this tree that caused the goats eccentric behavior. After tasting the berries for himself, it wasn't long before the invigorated Kaldi was dancing alongside his goats - full of life. Now Kaldi Gourmet Coffee Roasters brings that full life to you with our wholesale coffee! "If you dream it, you can live it." - This is the quote upon which Tracey and Alex Torello, the owners of Kaldi Gourmet Coffee Roasters, base both their personal and business lives. In 1995, the dream of Kaldi Gourmet Coffee Roasters became a reality and kaldi.com prepared to go online. Tracey and Alex decided they wanted to combine the finest of Arabica coffees, competitive prices and dedicated service to form the ideal roastery of wholesale coffees for the growing retail coffee market. Due to that strong commitment, Kaldi Gourmet Coffee Roasters has experienced tremendous growth since that first year. This growth was accomplished due to Tracey and Alex's firm belief that every customer, whether large or small, new or established, is important. Similar to the majority of its customers, Kaldi Gourmet Coffee Roasters is also a small business. Because Tracey and Alex have an appreciation for the ups and downs of small businesses, they aspire to provide their customers with the peace of mind of smooth vendor relations. Not only are we proud members of the Specialty Coffee Association, but Kaldi Gourmet Coffee Roasters has also grown from offering just 10 varietals and 8 flavored coffees to over 40 varietals and 60+ flavors. Our offerings include Organic, Fair Trade and Rainforest Alliance Certified wholesale roasted coffees. We value the importance of supporting environmentally-conscious farms and businesses. All wholesale coffee orders submitted are custom roasted, blended and flavored for each individual customer. All wholesale coffee orders placed by 10 am EST are roasted and shipped on the same business day. Due to its firm commitment to freshness, Kaldi Gourmet Coffee Roasters requires only a small 20-pound minimum coffee order to obtain free shipping of wholesale coffee to commercial addresses. Tracey and Alex would rather ship 20 pounds each week to a customer than 100 pounds once a month. There is no benefit to either the customer or to Kaldi Gourmet Coffee Roasters if the coffee is not fresh for brewing! We are proud to be a part of living your dream!
