Why Barista Fria?

We are pleased to introduce and offer a new smoothie and frappe alternative to our customers, Barista Fria. It is a product line that we have evaluated extensively, tested with our customers and had numerous meetings with the company representatives. As with any new product, our customers and our other vendors are always curious why, what it is and what is going to happen to our current products.

First, we are not discontinuing any of our other smoothie and frappe lines! We believe that each of them has their own unique qualities and fulfills specific needs for our retail customers and the consumer. One of the unique aspects of the specialty coffee and beverage retailer is to be able to offer the customer an individually made-to-order, customized drink that is as unique as the customer.

We believe that the Barista Fria line will help to fill a niche in the market place and offer our customers additional ways to increase their business and profits.

What is Barista Fria?

Barista Fria is a shelf-stable fruit smoothie and frappe mix developed by Island Oasis. Island Oasis, utilizing over 25 years of frozen beverage products and blending technology, have developed Barista Fria for the specialty coffee and beverage industry. Like Island Oasis, Barista Fria is a complete program of a Blending Shaver system and product enhanced by an array of point-of-sale materials and recipe ideas.

Unlike Island Oasis, Barista Fria is utilizing specialty coffee roasters and distributors to work with the specialty coffee retailer and other specialty stores offering hand crafted beverages. Stockton Graham & Co. is proud to be among their launch distributors.

• Barista Fria is packaged in aseptic ready-to-use cartons, with no corn syrups, trans fats, or preservatives and has a one year shelf life.

• Barista Fria is available in a variety of flavors: strawberry, banana, mango, wild berry, pina colada, caramel latte, mocha latte, ice cream base and chocolate ice cream base. A few additional flavors are on the way.

• Barista Fria has a cutting edge equipment program for retailers. With NO MONEY DOWN, based on certain annual purchase commitments, the specialty retailer can have a Barista Fria Ice Shaver system that makes up to three 16 oz drinks per batch in about eight seconds. In addition the Shaver and Blending Station, Barista Fria has Tempest Blender, from Hamilton Beach! It comes with two jars and is perfect for the lighter volume café.
