Wholesale Coffee Roaster
Did you know that Ladro is a full service wholesale Seattle coffee roaster? Here is a bit about what we bring to any wholesale relationship…
We believe profound service improves the world.
This is our mission and the backbone of everything we do.
We have decades of experience.
Our Wholesale Coffee Roaster team is comprised of passionate coffee professionals with no less than 8 years of experience. (Most of us have 20+ years under our belts!) From sample to order to cup, we are completely dedicated to making the coffee selection and order process as seamless and supportive as possible for all who choose to partner with us.
Then there is our spectacular menu.
We have five Classic Blends, in a range of roast profiles.
If you’re looking for a Seattle coffee roaster that knows better components yield a better end result, we are the partner for you. We always strive to bring you the best coffee the world has to offer each growing season. Our Classic Blends bring these gems together in roast profiles that show each coffee’s tastiest and best attributes—creating a flavor arc unique to each blend, and singular to Ladro Roasting.
We rotate a variety of seasonal Micro Lot coffees through our menu all year. In a process that takes months of scouting, sample roasting, testing, and retesting, we find coffees with exciting flavors that highlight the specific place each coffee is grown. We have at least two single origin coffees available for wholesale purchase at all times, to accentuate any elite coffee or food program. We work to tell the stories of those coffees so you can share the journey the coffees make from field to cup.
We work with premier equipment partners.
If you are looking for equipment for your venture, the great relationships we have built with the world’s best manufacturers will aid getting you just the kit you need, on your timeline. We will not upsell beyond your needs, nor will we sell product we don’t stand behind, in terms of quality. Our most requested equipment partners include: La Marzocco, Slayer, Synesso, Nuova Simonelli, Mazzer, Mahlkonig, Marco, Curtis, Fetco, and Bunn. We have pricing and lead times at the ready. We also offer equipment maintenance should your team find a need.
We provide initial and ongoing training.
We have a training curriculum that is road tested and fine-tuned. It includes, but is not limited, to espresso fundamentals, milk steaming, best practices for batch brewing, and single cup brew methods. We also make sure you and your team know how to use and maintain your equipment. We customize these tools in the way that is most appropriate for your business. We can set up training sessions at your location, or ours. We insist on spending time educating your team, to insure you get the most out of the coffee we work so hard to perfect for you.
We offer marketing resources.
Ladro Wholesale Marketing will work with you to create whatever branding will best suit your needs—Signage, Print Collateral, Seasonal Updates, Single Origin or Blend info cards, for example. These items can be made available at whatever level you’d like to execute. We will follow your business on Social Media, and share your big news with our audience. We want to be your Seattle coffee roaster!
We stay connected through ongoing support.
Once you partner with Ladro Roasting as your Seattle coffee roaster, you can expect weekly order contact from our Wholesale Support team. We have a technician on staff that can assist if any equipment issues should arise. The attentiveness that you experience with Scott Baldwin, our Director of Wholesale, extends all the way to our CEO, Jack Kelly. The entire team is truly here to help make your relationship with Ladro Roasting one you want to keep for years to come!
Don’t just take our word for it…
When we went searching for a new coffee vendor a few years back, we knew we wanted a smaller, local supplier—a company that aligned with our own in size and integrity and a company with a penchant for quality and consistency. We have found our match in Caffe Ladro.
Peter Levy, Chow Foods
The Ladro Roasting team has always gone above & beyond to make our little cafe feel special—processing orders quickly, training baristas for us, offering referrals & simply coming by for coffee! As a small business owner, that kind of support is invaluable!
Aubrey Dickinson, Little Red’s
Ladro Roasting is a consistent and quality focused team; they are incredibly easy to work with and always ensure products are shipped in timely fashion. They’re one of our longest partnerships and we love being able to share their delicious coffees with our subscribers all over the country.
Seth Mills, Director of Coffee, MistoBox
Caffe Ladro’s unparalleled quality, sourcing, and consistent flavor puts them a step ahead of the competition. And that’s saying something with as many worthy coffee choices in Seattle. They value the meaning of a partnership and we can count on them for all of our coffee needs.
