Kick Coffee

Not all coffee is created equal. While we know we produce great coffee, it is the opinion of consumers that actually matters most.

In today's world, consumers not only vote with their wallet but also with their online reviews, and consumers respond to high quality. Consider a few examples.

  1. One of our coffee shop clients was voted by their customers, in a CBS/WCCO TV online poll, as the "Best Coffee Shop" in the entire state.

  2. Our own popular Jo Coffee® brand is one of Amazon's highest rated organic coffee brands nationwide, with over 5000+ positive coffee reviews and continues to grow over 50% annually.

  3. In just two years, one of our private label clients has grown sales to over 6,000 packages per month on Amazon alone.

Our mission is not to grow as fast as possible nor to become as big as possible. Rather, our mission is to produce great coffee for our customers, to create a great place to work for our employees, and to have great relationships with both.

Amazon's open-door policy for artisan brands has been a game-changer for our business. With Amazon, consumers get to choose what they want from a huge marketplace of products, not just what is offered on a shelf by some large corporate category buyer in traditional brick & mortar retail stores. In the Amazon open-market format, high quality products will rise to the top on its' own ratings, so a small business can compete against large businesses. Amazon's customer-centric business model has truly changed the world.

Each of our coffees are fairly traded whether "Fair Trade Certified" or "Certified Organic" or not. Many small coffee growers around the planet simply cannot afford expensive certification. To reject these valuable farmers would go against the values we hold dearly. We buy only the finest, highest grade specialty green coffee from around the world. 

Before we ever purchase our specialty beans, they have passed the expert analysis and cupping tastes of one of the world's best specialty coffee importers/buyers. We continually experiment with new blends, roasting profiles, and search potential coffee varieties for addition to our offerings. We strive for perfection in every hand-crafted roast.

Besides providing fresh roasted retail and wholesale coffee, Specialty Java Inc. assists independent coffee shops with business development and private labeling.

The founder's (Kevin Kapaun) passion for coffee excellence had roots in the Caribbean Island of Jamaica. Kevin's hobby of importing and home roasting coffee in the late 1990's for friends and family was headed for something bigger. He roasted some pure Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee for his friend Larry Graham (Rock n Roll Hall of Fame bass player for Sly & the Family Stone) who then encouraged him to start a commercial coffee roasterie. Larry was his first customer and the rest is history, as they say.
