There are two things that every functional office from uptown Manhattan to Brooklyn’s east side absolutely requires – one is more toner for the copier the other is fresh, delicious coffee. There has to be coffee for the meeting at 11 o’clock. And wherever there is coffee, there has to be a thoughtful team of professionals ensuring the brew is fresh, the sugar is full and that there are enough of those stirry things no one knows the real name of, available at all times.
We have partnered with top national coffee chains, familiar supermarket brands and well-regarded local roasters to develop a broad portfolio of coffees in a variety of formats to meet the needs of most office environments, as well as the expectations of the most discerning palettes.
Coffee is serious business, and choosing between New York coffee distributors can be an arduous task, but you can take a lot of the work out of the job by entrusting your office coffee supply needs to an experienced purveyor of quality coffee products, such as Corporate Essentials.
Whole Bean Coffee
There is something truly remarkable about the scent of freshly ground coffee – the sound of beans being ground is enough to give some people a tiny jolt of hopeful energy. Whether it’s a press, pour-over, simple drip or old-school percolator, whole beans are the start of it all – first step in a chain of events that sets our day in motion and keeps things flowing nicely along. Having whole bean coffee available for meetings, special events or general consumption brings an air of sophistication to your office culture.
Because coffee loving people are often fickle, you will need to seek out coffee distributors with a broad selection of roasts and specialist flavors to keep their taste buds tantalized. Lucky for you, at Corporate Essentials, we do not stop with just a couple best-selling bags from national chain shops, rather we bring you a bounty of whole bean blends from coffee shop industry titans like Starbucks and Peets along with our own select Java Café whole bean coffees, and we are proud to offer a selection of small-batch roasts from local coffee heroes Café Grumpy. With scores of whole bean coffee varieties to choose from, your office break room will be buzzing along in no time.
Cold Brew Coffee
We couldn’t be more excited to introduce our new cold brew coffee program. We’ve partnered with local coffee roaster, Irving Farm Coffee, to create The Essential Coffee Company Cold Brew Program. The cold brewing process uses custom-ground Irving Farm Gotham Dark Roast Coffee cold steeped overnight to produce a unique beverage for Summertime or anytime.
After the brewing process is complete, our Cold Brew Coffee is kegged and stored in cold storage. From there, it is delivered fresh to our customers. We use nitrogen in our kegerators to deliver a uniquely smooth coffee experience, whether it’s on the rocks or with cream and flavored syrup. Enjoy the luxury of cold brew coffee served right in your office.
Not only do RealCup’s Flavor Max Filters provide the best tasting cup, but these filters brew a stronger cup of coffee when compared to other single-serve filters and even a slow brewed french press coffee. RealCup cups brew a coffee just as dark as a slow brewed french press and darker in color than traditional cups. True coffee aficionados will be impressed with the flavor punch these little cups pack in one cup.
When it comes to providing your office with the best coffee around, RealCup is the choice for you. Easy to use, convenient and the perfect cup of coffee every time, what more could you ask for? Treat your team to amazing coffee from the brands you love like Martinson, Brown Gold, Marley Coffee, Higgins & Burke and Second Cup.
If whole bean coffee is intimidating for you in terms of potential cleanup issues, waste, storage or general quality control on a day-to-day basis, coffee pods may be a better solution for your office break room. Coffee pods allow for the convenience of single-serve brewing with pre-measured doses of New York’s favorite coffees – from Donut Shop’s wide assortment of flavored coffee pods, to gourmet delights from the kitchen of Wolfgang Puck and a solid selection of Reunion Island coffee pods, including the much-preferred Swiss water process decaffeinated coffee pods and a number of flavored decaf pods.
As a long-standing market leader among coffee distributors, our in-house Java Café range has more than a dozen coffee pod varieties to choose from, including: flavored varieties like Java Café, Coconut Crème and Pacific Northwest Hazelnut coffee pods; regional gems like Java Café Guatemalan Asado Perfecto and Kenyan AA Kubwa Maharage coffee pods; and, sophisticated blends such as the simple Black dark roast coffee pods. Java Café also produces seasonal coffee pod varieties for a regular burst of new flavor throughout the year.
There is a guy in every office who is convinced he has the perfect secret formula to making better coffee than anyone else. More often than not, this guy makes the coffee far too weak or way too strong for the majority of other coffee drinkers on site. That guy is the reason coffee fraction packs exist.
Fraction packs are a popular product for coffee distributors because the pre-measured pouches cut down on the mess in the coffee preparation area, reduce waste, ensure consistent portioning and most importantly, fraction packs guarantee a consistent satisfying flavor from pot to pot the entire day.
There’s no guess work, no argument over who should make the coffee because “that guy” on third did it better, just a pot-sized bundle of aromatic coffee waiting for water to rush through and create the dark brown beverage so many of us need to get going every morning. Fraction pack offerings include popular coffee shop names as well as caffeinated and decaffeinated Java Café blends.
Little speaks to the custom coffee revolution as perfectly as the humble K-Cup Pack. Allowing people to pick a single flavor, roast or blend that fulfills their exact thirst at the point of demand, K-Cup packs provide what few in-house coffee brands can offer: true user choice. In a world where everyone wants their exact blend, their preferred roast, their ideal cup – satisfying the thirst of coffee drinkers is no simple task, and good coffee distributors are well aware that they are uniquely placed to bridge the gap between a satisfied, coffee-fueled workforce and bedlam.
The Corporate Essentials K-Cup Pack offering includes more than 100 varieties of single-serve satisfaction from top national brands including Green Mountain and Caribou Coffee. As well-regarded coffee distributors throughout the NYC area, we pride ourselves on offering something for everyone, including: quirky flavor combinations like Gloria Jean’s Butter Toffee; powerful roasts like Coffee People’s Jet Fuel – the only K-Cup Pack with an XX Bold rating (that means extra extra bold to you and me); and of course, home favorites like Emeril’s Big Easy Bold and Tully’s Breakfast Blend.
Keurig® BOLT Packs
For the office where fraction packs are a great solution, but time is everything, Keurig® has brought an amazing new solution to the market – the BOLT Pack. Similar to the popular, single-serve K-Cup Pack, BOLT Packs are individually sealed for freshness, and provide a metered dose of exactly the right amount of coffee for each use, but BOLT Packs are designed to brew an entire 64-ounce pot of your favorite coffee in about two minutes. Yes, really.
BOLT Brewers provide a thermal carafe that will keep your fresh coffee at the optimal temperature for up to two hours – meaning even the folks who show up late for that 9 a.m. earnings call will get a hot, fresh cup of Joe to help kick start their day. Keurig® BOLT Packs are available in more than a dozen of the most popular flavors and varieties that single-serve K-Cups come in already, from Tully’s French Roast to Green Mountain’s ever-popular French Vanilla, and Keurig® plans to expand that product offering as the BOLT system gains popularity in office and other workplace settings. Keurig® BOLT Packs are only available through Keurig®’s network of authorized coffee distributors, and luckily Corporate Essentials is here to help meet all your Keurig® needs.
While it is easy to lump all the single-serve brewing units together, we would rather be sure our customers understand what sets each brand apart so they can make informed choices about how to best meet the coffee-related needs of their workforce. Flavia is different – having exclusive coffee blends and single-source varieties from Milwaukee’s much-loved Alterra coffee. Coffee distributors embraced the Flavia model early on, and it has remained popular with every office due to its flexibility and convenience.
Users are able to make their own personalized “perfect coffee”, selecting a seasonal hit of Pumpkin Spice or a rich, seductive Sumatra to brewing the freshest single-serve cup on offer. Making luxurious layered cappuccinos is easy with a few quick clicks at the low-power LED display, allowing users to get that quick caffeine hit – no in-house barista required.
While the single-serve coffee revolution has brought an incredible selection to our fingertips in the office break room, there are plenty of coffee purists out there who view it all as sub-standard, inadequate, artificial nonsense. The Corporate Essentials Lavazza line is our humble answer to those purists. Lavazza is one of the most recognized purveyors of quality and excellence in the coffee the world over – and with more than a century of experience as coffee distributors and roasters in what many would argue is the most competitive coffee market on earth, that is a well-earned reputation.
Whether your workplace has a swish Lavazza Espresso Point one-cup espresso system or the sleek Lavazza Blue Espresso maker, there’s little that defines the true pleasure of a cup of coffee like a hit of real Italian espresso. Now available in pre-portioned, perfectly balanced capsules, Lavazza’s espresso options provide a gorgeous dose of aroma and crema to your morning or afternoon. All of the flavor, none of the hassle.
There is a fine line between satisfying the cravings of a true coffee fiend and sacrificing the speed and efficiency of your office break room. As a savvy coffee distributor with close to two decades of experience in answering the caffeination call for offices throughout New York City, Corporate Essentials is pleased to offer a variety of Nespresso capsules to help meet the needs of your coffee aficionados.
From the satisfying click of the capsule in the chamber to the subtle purr of water at just the right temperature whirling its way through the pre-measured coffee grounds, Nespresso coffee capsules offer a unique multi-sensory experience for coffee drinkers. The aroma is exquisite and the visual development of the cup is dramatic, making a cup of coffee with a Nespresso pod a sort of treat in and of itself. Users can choose from a variety of specialty espresso pods, including the popular bold Espresso Forte, smooth Lungo Leggero and spicy Ristretto Origin India.
For break rooms where hot water is easy to come by but space is at a premium, instant coffee sachets can be a great option. Popular names like Starbucks Via and Tasters Choice from Nescafe are available in convenient, single-serve packets allowing for individual portioning. Today’s instant coffee comes in a variety of flavors and roasts, including decaf and cold brew varieties to provide a quick hit of rich, dark coffee flavor when it is needed most.
Adding instant coffee products to your break room pantry selection is a good way to provide coffee for occasional cravings or visitors when you work in an environment where the day-to-day staff can’t manage to survive without coffee. Leading coffee distributors will be able to pair your occasional needs with simple, elegant instant coffee solutions guaranteed to satisfy.
The true beauty of partnering with top coffee distributors like Corporate Essentials is that we are able to provide everything your office break room needs to ensure the coffee demands of your workforce are met. More than traditional coffee filters, we offer a wide selection of racks and trays to keep your K-Cups, coffee pouches and other beverage packets tidy and organized.
For the office where environmental concerns are paramount, we are also pleased to offer Grounds to Grow On receptacles to help manage the waste generated by K-Cups, as well as recycle bins for Flavia and Fresh Pack containers. We even have reusable K-Cup filters so those staff members wishing to use their own coffee grounds can still brew using your workplace machine with ease, without adding to landfills.
From cleansers to ensure your coffee cups and carafes are dazzlingly fresh to replacement decanters for those hard-working machines, Corporate Essentials is ready to provide everything you need to make your office coffee experience more complete. A solid selection of creamers, sweeteners, flavors, cups and sleeves can be easily delivered right to the break room area – taking the hassle out of packing it all back from your local cash and carry, while at the same time giving you more finite control over inventory management and reordering. And yes, we’ll even bring those little stirry things.
