OTTAWA'S WHOLESALE COFFEE IS ROASTED TO ORDER
What makes us different from other Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal wholesale coffee roasters is our ability to ROAST TO ORDER only. Inspired by modern JUST-IN-TIME manufacturing methods FCC set off on a quest to completely eliminate all roasted inventory.Others may make this claim, but it is in fact very difficult to actually attain. We wrote complex software to achieve this capability over a number of years. No small feat! But there's really no other way!
So... to recap:
NO INVENTORY... zilch, zippo, zero, nada, none!
FCC delivers coffee to your door within 36 hours of roasting. Often sooner.
Why settle for once a week delivery or for coffee that was roasted two weeks prior? It's not all the same...
CUSTOMER SERVICE AGENTS
Your business is important. That's why your order is handled by a team of dedicated account managers and fulfillment specialists. So... no dropped orders, no holding on the phone, no despondent baristas moonlighting as order takers, no resource sucking café divisions. Just polite, knowledgeable, effective service, at your disposal and fantastic, truly fresh coffee.
Our Fair Trade coffee is backed by real certifications. That means that we are audited by certifying entities a minimum of once per year. No vague promises of Direct Trade here. We know exactly where our coffee was grown, by whom, and to what standards.
Nothing detracts from your business more than than an un-certified product masquerading as one with legitimate certifications and pedigree. Be discerning. Don't settle.
We deliver the assurance that only an audited paper trail can offer. Ask us to show you our certifications. We'd be thrilled to oblige and be sure to ask the same of any other vendor.
Francesco's gets it. Oxygen rapidly stales any coffee. We package our coffee in high quality bags with aluminum oxygen barriers. Don't be fooled... kraft paper bags won't keep your coffee fresh. Our clients have different format needs. To accommodate this, we package the following:
- full range of made-to-order sachets for food service service applications, (roasted the night before shipping)
- 1lb. valved bag format,
- 3/4lb. valved bag format, and
- 5 lb valved bag format
All our artisan coffee is packed in oxygen proof aluminum PTE valved and gusseted bags. Retail packages are equipped with resealable tin ties. Ask us about your own private label.
