Escape the Daily Grind with Gourmet-Quality, Locally Roasted Coffee

Coffee is a basic (many would say essential) commodity with a history as rich and robust as a double espresso. At various times, coffee has been considered a gift from the gods, a magical cure-all, the source of all humanity’s problems and, quite literally, an almost obligatory worker perk. 

Did you know, for example, that coffee is the second most valuable traded commodity in the world? 

Or that 450 million cups of coffee are consumed in the U.S. every day?

Or that Corporate Essentials has served more than 50 million cups of coffee in the NYC metro area since 1996?

There are basically two types of drinkable coffee that come from two distinct types of coffee trees: Robusta & Arabica. While the Robusta market is bigger worldwide, the Arabica (or specialty coffee market) keeps growing as a percentage of the overall coffee market. 

  • Robusta coffee beans are for the mass market. They are less expensive because they are easier to grow, are considered of lesser quality, and (perhaps surprisingly) have higher levels of caffeine. These trees are grown at lower altitudes (yes, “mountain grown” means something) and produce less pleasant tastes. These beans are grown on large estates, picked by machine, and roasted lighter to retain moisture weight (because coffee is sold by weight). 
  • All specialty coffee is Arabica, but not all Arabica coffees are special. Quality depends on many things including how the coffee is grown, processed, roasted, and brewed. Arabica beans are grown at higher altitudes, handpicked, and roasted for flavor rather than a concern of how much weight the beans will lose. These are the beans sold at all good coffeehouses and specialty roasters, like the local roasters we partner with through our Essential Coffee Company.
