Cafes and Restaurants
Red Rooster offers a full line of eye-popping single origin coffees and solid blends for your cafe or restaurant. If you're thinking of opening a new cafe, looking to switch coffees, or simply thinking of adding a new roaster to your coffee service, we offer extensive options. For the full service cafe, consider offering our any of our signature Organic & Fair Trade blends on daily rotation: The Farmhouse, The Funky Chicken, the 4&20 French Roast, and our Old Crow Espresso on your espresso machine. Then add in a seasonal rotation of amazing single origins from around the world and you're ready to present your customers with an dynamic selection of coffee. All of our coffees come with beautiful posters, farm information, info cards and unique branding.
One of our greatest joys is teaching people about coffee and training new baristas! We love to introduce people to the complex and exciting world of coffee. Our intensive two-day Coffee 101 and Espresso 101 are supported by our team of dedicated coffee professionals whose only goal in life is to help make your cafe great!
Red Rooster packages our coffee in biodegradable 12oz bags that are hand printed with beautiful artwork, making them one of the most eye-catching products on the shelf. Our Organic and Fair Trade blends are currently sold at many boutique and specialty shops throughout Virginia, Maryland, DC and West Virginia, including the wonderful stores of MOMs Organic Market. We also sell our coffees on the shelves of national stores such as Whole Foods and The Fresh Market. It's easy to set up an account with us and we have low minimums to assure that even the smallest mom & pop businesses (like us!) can put Red Rooster on their shelves.
For many coffee shops, the espresso machine is the backbone of the business, offering delicious specialty drinks to their loyal clientele. Red Rooster offers discounts on top of the line espresso machines from La Marzocco and Nuova Simonelli as part of our full service coffee program. All of our machines come with installation, unlimited technical support, and the peace of mind that comes with knowing that you are serving top of the line coffee on a top of the line machine. If you're thinking of starting a cafe, contact us before purchasing a machine. We can also provide Fetco and Wilbur Curtis batch brewing equipment as well as manual brewing equipment from Hario, Chemex, and Aeropress.
Red Rooster offers consulting for all of our restaurant and cafe clients. For all of our clients, we recommend taking all three of our class offerings:
Espresso 101 - pull the proper shot, dial in the machines, and learn to steam milk like a champ.
Coffee 101 - taste coffee from around the world while learning about processing, roasting, and the history of coffee.
Brewing 101 - this short on-location class makes certain you are brewing coffee to its highest potential.
All of our clients receive on-site and phone consultation just by purchasing our coffee. Our customer service is designed to make sure that you are supported in every facet of your coffee program.
