“The smell of freshly brewed coffee evokes so many memories for me. Mostly of time spent with friends and family, the people I love. I wanted to develop these coffee blends in that spirit, and create a place where people could come together and take a break from their busy days.”

THE RALPH’S COFFEE BLENDS

Ralph’s special blends, including Ralph’s Roast, Decaf, and Espresso, feature organically grown beans from Central America, South America, and Africa, and are roasted and packaged in Philadelphia by La Colombe. Only the all-natural Swiss Water Process is used to decaffeinate.

Ralph’s Roast was designed exclusively for drip coffee. It’s best described as a bold, culinary coffee with a balanced profile and classic real coffee flavors with deep chocolate tones and moderate acidity.

LA COLOMBE’S STORY

Background of dark coffee beans.

In 1994, two guys opened a cafe in the middle of downtown Philadelphia. In that shop off Rittenhouse Square, they roasted small-batch, specialty coffee and introduced Philly to a warm, social café experience. They walked the city, knocking on doors of illustrious chefs and demonstrating that fine coffee can be paired with fine cuisine in an intentional, culinary way.

Now, over 20 years, millions of pounds of coffee, and a new beverage category later, Todd Carmichael and JP Iberti continue working towards their ultimate goal: making people happy with coffee. By forming close, long-term relationships with coffee growers and putting care and attention into roasting, coffee can be made infinitely better.

As one of the country’s largest independent coffee companies, we operate 16 cafés in Philadelphia, New York, Chicago, Washington, D.C., and Boston. Our five wholesale offices provide coffee service to hotels, cafés, and restaurants across the country.

And most recently, we made headlines in the ready-to-drink business with our PURE BLACK™ cold-pressed bottled coffee and cans of DRAFT LATTE©—the world’s first-ever textured iced latte. Through hard work and innovation, our story, brand, and company continue to evolve.
