The Empire Coffee private label coffee roasting program is uniquely suited to assist your company. What sets us apart? We want to help you build your identity, and we understand that if there is an issue, people don’t call Empire Coffee, they call you.

As a result, we work tirelessly to make sure your private label coffee brand is delicious day after day. To achieve this, Empire Coffee utilizes computerized roasting on our two 500 pound Jebez Burns roasters, 2 MPE mill grinders, and a variety of packaging equipment. Furthermore, we cup your coffees continuously to manage the consistency of a blend or single origin flavor profile.

A key aspect of the Empire Coffee private label coffee program hinges on our ability to manage the price of your coffee on a monthly and yearly basis. Our buying team has over 40 years of experience identifying the right coffees for the right job. There are many considerations our buying team at Empire Coffee must account for when purchasing for a brand. Our many decades of experience insulates our customers from the random fluctuations that effect the coffee commodity market. In addition, we work directly with only a trusted handful of green coffee importers. These importers have dedicated people in each coffee growing region around the world monitoring a variety of climate and production variables throughout the growing season. This information is passed along to us, enabling our team to make informed buying decisions.

In addition to the roasting and packaging of your private label coffee, Empire can handle all of your logistical needs from pallet configuration to Fineline ticketing. Finally, we are SQF Level 2, Kosher, Fair Trade USA and Organic certified.
