St. Patrick’s Day Coffees

There are few better ways to prepare your St. Patrick’s Day menu than sitting down with a freshly prepared Classic Irish Coffee. Whiskey-doused beverages like Irish Coffee, or even modern twists like this sexy Cold Brewed Coffee-Tini, are always good choices for your March menu.St. Patrick's Day Menu Stockton Graham & Co. Coffee Roaster

But if you don’t have a liquor license or prefer to keep your store more family friendly, a great option is coffee that is flavored to taste like your favorite St. Patrick’s Day liqueur. Here are a few of Stockton Graham & Co.’s favorite St. Patrick’s Day-inspired options straight from our Raleigh, North Carolina coffee roaster:

Flavored Coffee

Highlander Cream
“The essence of the Highlands” is what we call this creamy, dreamy coffee. It is based on a popular liqueur made with high-end Scotch whisky, double cream and a secret blend of wild and puckish herbs. Your customers will find Highlander Cream notable for its light spice and remarkably smooth flavor.

Irish Cream
Everyone knows Irish Cream. It is a liqueur made from cream and Irish whiskey that became the go-to after-dinner cordial in the mid-1970s. This straight-forward version is great as a standalone drink with a splash of fresh cream or blended with Irish Cream syrup for an indulgent St. Patrick’s Day pick-me-up.

Irish Mint
This is Irish Cream coffee laced with the cool, refreshing flavor of Crème de Menthe. As an after-dinner option, it’s the closest thing you’ll get to a good luck charm, unless you have a four-leaf-clover handy.

Luck of the Irish
Everyone should feel a little nutty for St. Patrick’s Day. Our Luck of the Irish flavor complements the rich, sweet taste of Irish Cream with caramel and nuts. It is a creamy and light with coffee with luxurious, silky undertones.

Peppermint Paddy
Bold dark chocolate coats refreshing, glacial mint nuances in this peppermint patty-inspired coffee. Most customers comment on its sensational, refreshing mouth feel and rich chocolate aftertaste.

Scottish Grog
Another option inspired by the highlands of Scotland, this coffee has creamy, sweet caramel notes in a full, creamy body. A splash of honey-tinged bourbon flows across the palate like the boisterous sound of bagpipes rolling down a lush, green Scottish hillside.

White Chocolate Chunk
It’s not a traditional St. Patrick’s Day flavor; yet we find it pairs well with many Irish desserts like Tea Cake and Soda Bread Cookies. That’s because white chocolate isn’t as forward as dark chocolate and milk chocolate, so customers get a hint of indulgent flavor without overwhelming the palate.

Non-Coffee Options

Organic Assam Breakfast Tea
Irish Breakfast Tea is really a mix of several black teas, most of them Assam. These big, black organic tea leaves are the real thing, grown in Assam, India, where hot days and cool nights bring out the rich, full flavor.

Green Tea Smoothie
Smoothies made with authentic Japanese green tea are a healthful way to get in the St. Patrick’s Day spirit. We offer several brands of including Dragonfly Green Tea Powder and Matcha Green Tea Smoothie Base from Big Train.

Green Tea Chai
We love David Rio Tortoise Green Tea Chai mix for its rich and creamy mixture of green tea and exotic spices. What’s better, it can be served hot or blended with ice for a cool drink of green.

2016 Coffee Shop Trends

Coffee Shop TrendsEach year about this time, we forecast coffee shop trends for the coming year so our customers can position themselves for success. Whether you run a coffee shop, café, restaurant, kiosk or otherwise offer specialty coffees in your store, this list of 2016 coffee shop trends is for you.

Sense of Place

Everyone’s over the cookie-cutter cool that’s defined coffee shops for the last five years. You know the look: Blond wood, giant chalkboards, exposed pipe, Remy stools, vintage barn pendant lights.

As living and eating locally has become the trend du jour, consumers are more interested in neighborhood nostalgia and are looking for a coffee shops with an authentic sense of place. If your store is located on the site of an old barn or a school house, then go with that. If not, do some research to discover the look and feel that will give your store a sense of place like Amelie’s French Bakery in Charlotte, Wild Boar Café in Fort Collins or L’Hôtel de Vendôme in Paris.

Relatedly, nature will begin to take center stage inside coffee shops in 2016, and the color green will especially be on trend. In addition to coffee shops with outside garden spaces, don’t be surprised to see mixed-use greenhouse and botanical coffee shops popping up towards the end of the year.

Interactive Shops

Coffee shops have always been an easy place to socialize, whether your customers are on a first date, taking office work “off campus” or catching up with friends from across town. In 2016, stores will become even more interactive. Look for long-communal tables, sugar and milk served family style, and baristas who get out from behind the counter to interact with customers. Genius Bar-type brewing classes will become popular, as customers see coffee as more of an experience than a beverage. For inspiration, check out Pinewood Social in Nashville or Café Streets in Chicago.

Signature Blends

Nearly every store serves at least one “house special” coffee, whether its a flavored latte or a single-origin coffee. Baristas will start taking that trend to the next level in 2016 by becoming coffee mixologists. By mixing coffees from different places and different roast levels based on a customer’s flavor preferences, a barista will create a bespoke coffee blend for each customer. The result: a customer experience that can’t be replicated at any other store.

On Tap

2015 was the year that iced coffee took off, and this year it will be even bigger. Customers will enjoy cold coffee drinks straight from the tap like an up-scale bar or lounge, and Nitro coffee (that’s seeped coffee infused with odorless, flavorless nitrogen gas, kegged like beer and served on tap) will continue to be a big seller. In fact, this year you’re unlikely to find a successful coffee shop without a cold brew option (or two) behind the counter. Call to make an appointment at our Raleigh coffee roasting facilities to learn more about cold coffee beverages for your store.

Flavors, Flavors

Once considered the ugly stepchild of coffee, flavored coffee has become hot. In fact, Mintel Research reports that sales of flavored coffee are up 15%, with dessert flavored coffees leading the way. Put all the dessert-flavored coffees into a bucket, and sales are up a whopping 800% since 2010, Mintel research reveals. As we move into summer, which is the season for iced coffee, expect to see cold flavored coffees on tap, in frappes and on ice.

Mixed Use

Shops that focus on coffee have usually found that sales dip considerably from about 5pm onwards. That has prompted many stores to offer alternative evening and night time menus that entice morning customers back after dark. Applying for a liquor license and offering wine and cocktails is one popular choice. But other ideas include adding fresh baked breads like our customer Great Harvest Breads of Greenville, NC or chocolates like Chocolate Café in Southbend, IN or Cocoabar in New York City. The Office Coffee Shop in Detroit adroitly combines a coffee shop with a for-rent workspace; look for more work/coffee combinations and other mixed-use retail/coffee concepts.

All Wet

Well trained baristas know that water quality is one of the most important, yet overlooked, elements of coffee brewing. So in 2016, water will get its due attention. Check out the water tasting menu at 3FE in Dublin, Ireland and Maxwell Colonna Dashwood and Christopher H. Hendon’s book, ‘Water for Coffee.’ Stockton Graham & Co. offers training programs for owners, baristas and staff that address water quality, as well as the other five essentials of brewing great coffee.

Bitter: Sweet

Coffee has been traditionally served with sweet foods like cookies, chocolate and pie, of course. But 2016 will recognize an evolution in customers’ palates. Tropical Island Coffee & Café in Winchester, VA serves coffee with spicy jerk chicken and plantains while Chef Booj Supe of Gourmet Garage pairs a medium roast with mushroom and cheese risotto. Coffee shop trends will increasingly involve menu innovations and deconstructed classics.

FaLaLaLaLa for Flavored Coffees


Stockton Graham & Co. Winter Flavored CoffeesThis season, flavored coffees are back with a vengeance. Winter warmers are firing up coffee sales especially among dessert-flavored coffees like Tiramisu, Red Velvet Cake, Gingerbread and Pumpkin Cheesecake.

Flavored coffees are different than coffee beverages flavored with syrups from MONIN, DaVinci or Torani. Stockton Graham & Co. makes our flavored coffees to order with fresh-roasted beans that are tumbled in large bins with small amounts of flavoring. The result is a cleaner tasting flavored beverage with, of course, less sugar and calories than coffees that include flavored syrups or sauces.

Mintel Research tells us that flavored coffee sales are up 15%, with dessert flavored coffees leading the way. Put all the dessert-flavored coffees into a bucket, and sales are up a whopping 800% since 2010, according to Mintel. Yes, that’s right. 800%.

Big changes in flavored coffees are being pushed by Millennials who are more adventurous and like to experiment with different taste combinations.

Millennial coffee consumers are the coffeehouse generation, having grown up with choices, flavors and variety. These flavor-friendly flavored coffee drinkers are rapidly replacing Baby Boomers and black coffee. That’s why flavored coffee sales are indexing at a considerably faster rate than non-flavored coffee, according to Mintel Research.

According to research company NPD Group, customers will continue to be more adventurous in 2016. And brands that fare best will be the ones that strive for menu innovation, according to NPD Analyst Bonnie Riggs: “It’s about the food, the innovation.”

Now’s the time to think about flavored coffee for your store. Here are some of our new and popular dessert-flavored options:

Tiramisu – Our tiramisu coffee is made like the famous Italian dessert with light and moist flavors of ladyfinger cookies soaked in Marsala wine and espresso. We layer those flavors with the taste of creamy mascarpone cheese and fresh grated chocolate. Served with a splash of fresh cream, it’s like indulging in Little Italy without worrying about your waistline.

Red Velvet Cake – Red Velvet cupcakes may be one of the hottest dessert menu trends today, and so we did our our version with this flavored coffee. We blended deep cocoa and tangy cream cheese into bath of buttermilk and added a vanilla accent at the end. It’s a masterpiece of flavor in a cup!

Pumpkin Cheesecake – Pumpkin gets even more decadent with the addition of cream cheese in this new favorite. We prefer our pumpkin cheesecake with a graham cracker crust and so we crafted a foundation of honey cinnamon graham flavors to accent this coffee’s bold and round body.

Winter Wonderland – Four popular flavors come together in a snow globe of deliciousness: a winter wonderland of caramel and hazelnut powdered with a fresh snow of coconut and vanilla. Fans of our summertime favorite Jamaican Me Crazy® flock to Winter Wonderland for its complementary flavor profile. It’s guaranteed to warm your spirit with holiday happiness!

Yule Nog – This perfect after-dinner coffee features the flavors of rich, custardy egg nog like grandma used to make with fresh eggs and cream. Then we topped it off with a spike of cinnamon and nutmeg. Combined with a slightly sweet finish, this coffee is sure to delight your family and guests this holiday season.

Chocolate Peppermint –When you take one sip of this flavored coffee, you experience the sensation of skiing down a hill into a pile of glacial mint. It’s a great specialty coffee to enjoy in your snow boots or pajamas and makes a perfect companion to the holidays.

Cozy Fire – Bourbon, southern pecan and a touch of cinnamon flavor waltz together in a cup of 100% Arabica coffee. A sip warms the tongue and fires up the palate, keeping you toasty and full of energy for the long, cold nights.

Toasted Praline – A nutty and buttery pecan flavor, lightly toasted, is the centerpiece of our toasted praline coffee. Deeper on the palate, there’s a hint of dark brown sugar and cream. Imagine fresh-from-the-oven candy-coated pecans with far fewer calories per cup.

Gingerbread – This coffee is spicy sweet like the little gingerbread guys that are so hot this season. We’ve captured the scent and flavor of warm cookies fresh from the oven, complementing the ginger flavor with our own blend of cinnamon and hazelnut for a uniquely snappy taste!

CinnaGraham – Our most popular fall flavor continues to sell well this winter. Folks enjoy the fresh taste of honeycombs kissed with a sprinkle of cinnamon. The cinnamon is not as forward as some of our other related flavors, which leaves room for the honey sweetness to tantalize the tongue.

New fall coffee flavors are rich and sassy

Fall flavors like pumpkin, chocolate and caramel have long-been associated with autumn, and now taste makers are branching out to take these favorites in new directions. In place of caramel, palates are moving toward a more smoky, rich buttery version of crème brûlée. And chocolate is getting sassy kick with a dash of salt.Stockton Graham Coffees New Fall Coffees

While pumpkin has been on-trend for two years, consumers are looking for more adventurous offerings this fall. And trend-forward operators are stepping out of the pumpkin spice box to differentiate their menu and drive profits.

“Especially when it comes to a relatively low-cost, low-calorie sweet treat like coffee, customers are willing to indulge a bit in the sensory adventures of a new flavor,” said Stockton Graham & Co. marketing director Lane Mitchell. “Bringing your menu to the next level with fresh twists on well-loved classics will not only bring new customers in, but keep your loyal customers coming back for their next flavor adventure.”

Stockton Graham launches five new fall coffees

Aside from our pumpkin-flavored coffees, which have been flying out the door, many of our customers have been capitalizing on consumer demands for salty-sweet flavors of salted caramel. So two of our new fall coffee flavors feature a sassy salted version of sweet, buttery caramel.

Two other new fall flavors lean toward what global food experts The Food People call “Dirty French.” That’s classic French cuisine infused with a new, fun and fresh twist. It’s a decidedly American take on French flavors.

And finally, cinnamon graham crackers come to mind when tasting our fifth new flavor of the season: CinnaGraham. This coffee leverages 2016’s hot trend toward sweet-savory flavors by infusing honey with cinnamon and ginger.

Here’s a summary of the new fall coffee flavors, all of which are created in our Raleigh, NC coffee roasting facility:

Fall Coffees Labels-Salted CaramelSalted Caramel

Classic caramel, with its lip-tingling sweetness and rich buttery body, is finished with a delicate twinge of sea salt. The salt amplifies the sweet cream and light brown sugar flavors without overpowering the rich natural flavors of our 100% Arabica coffee.

 

Stockton Graham Coffees Salted Caramel BrownieSalted Caramel Brownie
Our classic caramel flavored coffee is dipped in milk chocolate and finished with a dash of sea salt in a 100% Arabica coffee. This smooth, indulgent combination warms the palate and tantalizes the tongue with a subtle contrast of sweet and savory.

 

Creme Caramel flavored Coffee from Stockton Graham CoffeesCrème Caramel
A sweeter version of our Crème Brûlée, this coffee combines the elegant flavors of sweetened cream, caramelized light brown sugar and natural vanilla with our 100% Arabica coffee. Think of a five-star Crème Brûlée topped with a glistening ganache.

 

Cinnagraham Flavored Coffee From Stockton Graham Coffee French Almond
In France, the sweet meringue-based cookies made with egg white, sugar and ground almonds are called macarons. Here, we call our 100% Arabica French Almond coffee a perfect sip of fresh almond paradise.

 

Fall Coffees Labels-CinagrahamCinnaGraham
The flavor of fresh honeycomb sprinkled with Ceylon cinnamon elevates this 100% Arabica coffee to savory new heights. Not as cinnamon-forward as some of our other related flavors, this coffee tastes like an adult version of those cute honey graham snack bears.

 

Consumers crave upscale comfort

As usual, this fall’s food and beverage flavor trends correspond with the ongoing nostalgia trend; but they are taken to a new level with refined, sophisticated twist. Any of our new flavored coffees are a great way to provide your customers with a unique beverage experience while still offering the security of familiar and traditional foods and beverages.

Familiar often means flavors that remind consumers of home. “Consumers are looking more and more for tastes and products that are of domestic origin and often ‘retro-comforting,’” says Anton Angelich, group vice president, marketing for Virginia Dare, an international flavoring manufacturer.

Angelich notes that fall’s newest flavors connote “comfort, Americana, Thanksgiving, Halloween, and the heart-warming of the autumn season.”

With that in mind, if you are looking for pumpkin spice beverage ideas, we have several in our Pumpkin Palooza article.  For fall LTOs ideas that feature the flavors of honey, caramel, cream and vanilla, visit our toasted graham article here.  Both pumpkin and toasted graham recipes can be found on our recipe page.

Ordering is easy. Call our Customer Care Associates at 800 835 5943 or email orders@stocktongraham.com.

*Please note, wholesale coffee orders will include our standard label. Creative labeling for retail sales can be discussed with a Customer Care Associate.

Roses are Red, Violets are Blue…

The coffee is hot, and here’s a little something for you!

Valentine’s Day is coming up, and as the second largest retail holiday of the year, we have chosen three great products to celebrate the season.  So, whether you need to heat yourself up or cool your heels, any and all of these options are sure to be popular with your customers.

Chocolate covered cherries are a classic candy recipe usually reserved for special occasions; to be given to your special someone.  While the candy version is a tad messy, you can enjoy our Chocolate Cherry Kiss flavored coffee without the sticky mess!  Starting with our 100% Arabica beans, we then blend flavors of sweet, juicy cherries and creamy candy then surround it with sweet milk chocolate.  Chocolate and coffee go together naturally so well, and the added sweetness and fruit from the cherries makes for a delectable treat.  We suggest featuring this coffee as a daily brew and for take-home.  Remind your customers that their sweetie is probably expecting a thoughtful surprise, and what better way to wake up than with a coffee that reminds them that someone special was thinking of them. You can pack a few bags with your own label and have them ready for impulse purchases, or rely on us to pre-pack them for you.

Invite your customers to treat themselves this Valentine’s Day to a Red Velvet Frappe from Cappuccine.  It’s rich cocoa and cake batter flavor sets it apart from the norm, but the luscious red color really makes it shine.  Top each with whipped cream and red sprinkles for extra appeal.  Whether bought for themselves or someone else, your customers will love the great taste and festive colors.  If you’re in an area with exceptionally cold weather, you may want to offer this as a hot drink as well.

redespressoThis is the time of year that we see higher sales in teas as well, though not all cafés take great advantage of the opportunity.  Since only a little more than half of all adults drink coffee, having great, high quality alternatives is a must.  Rather than offering a hodge podge of low-end teas like those found in diners, consider a line of nice, full leaf teas, packed in silken sachets.  These teas offer a cleaner, clearer more satisfying liquor, and your customers are willing to pay more for them.  Contact us today to learn more about the options we have, including red espresso – a rooibos espresso product from South Africa.

Torani Peppermint BarkHolidays and other events are a great for a Limited Time Offer or LTO.  These promotions build anticipation and spur action from your customers to act now, or risk having to wait until next year.  A great LTO for this Valentine’s day are White Peppermint Mochas.  Peppermint remains popular well into the Valentine season, and this would be a great chance to clear out your inventory before warmer weather comes.  We have a very limited supply of the NEW Torani Peppermint Bark, which is perfectly formulated for just enough peppermint flavor to complement the rich, white chocolate.  Once these few cases are gone, we will all have to wait until next Fall to get more. Click here for some great Torani Peppermint Bark Sauce recipes!

rosesAs with any promotion you offer, make use of any free POS materials available so that your customers get the visual impact of these great drinks.  Be sure your staff are aware of the new items and how to properly prepare them.  They should suggestively sell featured items; it costs nothing to do so, and the rewards are pure profit.  Help your staff sell more by providing them sensual keywords, like “luscious, divine, silky, sweet etc.”

Contact our Customer Care Department by calling 800.835.5943 for access to samples, POS Materials and more fun ideas.

Promote Seasonal Bulk & Retail Coffees Through A Pre-Holiday Open House

With this year’s holiday season just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about how you plan to make the busiest time of the year a success. Studies show that 40% of sales during the six weeks prior to Christmas are a result of retail purchases: this is not something you want miss out on. Though retail sales are at their highs during the last few weeks of the year, they don’t generate themselves. Promoting bulk coffee and retail coffee sales is key during this time of the year. One great way to do this is by hosting a pre-holiday open house to showcase upcoming seasonal features to your customers.

Begin promoting your pre-holiday open house in October, with a plan to hold the event in early November. This gives your customers time to become aware of the event. A few weeks prior to the event, have employees remind customers of the time and date as they come in each day. Also, advertise your event details with signage near the entrance so everyone sees it as they come and go. Lastly, be sure to post it on your shop’s website, social media page and online community calendars. Today, social media is the easiest way to reach out to your whole customer base, so it is critical to have all details and updates posted on Facebook and/or Twitter. While promoting, consider mentioning free samples and giveaways and/or raffles which will take place at the event to help encourage your customers to attend.

So, what do pre-holiday open houses usually consist of? As mentioned before, this is a great time to emphasize your bulk bean program. Let guests know that a retail bag makes a perfect stocking-stuffer or a gift basket item. Also, this time of the year people tend to do a lot of entertaining, whether it is hosting holiday parties or hosting relatives. A fresh roasted retail bag of coffee or two would certainly be a great accessory to have! An open house is also a great time to introduce your upcoming seasonal features to customers. If you plan to bring in seasonal coffees, arrange for samples to be available at this time, and brew a few pots so your customers can taste test what you plan to bring in. This allows you to receive feedback, as well as collect preorders for customers who don’t want to miss out on your limited time offer. If you’re a bakery, consider having apple pie or other baked goods available so customers can sample and preorder their baked goods to pick up the week of Thanksgiving! The main objective of any pre-holiday open house is to get your customers excited about the upcoming holiday features you will be offering, while also convincing them to come to your store, as opposed to competitors, during the season.

This is also a fantastic way to show your appreciation for your regular customers. Business aside, an open house get-together is a perfect opportunity to have fun in a laid back environment and to say “thank you” to the people who generate a large portion of your sales. Let them know that this is not something that is designed to pressure them in to buying more, but a time to relax while enjoying a friendly, entertaining atmosphere with you, the shop owner. Nothing grows business better than strengthening relationships with customers.

Stockton Graham & Co.’s founder and former owner of multiple retail coffee shops, Jeff Vojta, said he would always hold a pre-holiday open house during this time of the year. “There is no better way to make your customers aware of what seasonal products you will be offering, and promote your retail program while it’s at it’s highest potential”, said Vojta. The fourth quarter is the most critical quarter of the year for all coffee shop owners, so make sure you are doing what it takes so help your 2013 go out with a bang! Happy Holidays!

Build your Business: Bulk & Retail Coffee Programs

Are you selling whole bean coffee in your café? You should be. Bulk coffee sales have the potential to dramatically increase your total sales, yet ironically it remains one of the most underrated and missed opportunities by many specialty coffee retailers. One of the most common misconceptions, when it comes to selling retail coffee, is that it is encouraging customers to stay at home and not come into your shop. The reality is this; of the 300 million cups of coffee Americans drink each day, about three quarters are brewed at home. This means that if customers are inevitably going to drink someone’s coffee at home, it might as well be yours. This also does not replace the fact that customers will still need to come to your shop for espresso-based and other specialty drinks, which they are typically unable to make at home. A successful retail program does not require a lot of extra time, work or marketing. A simple countertop or shelf display will draw the attention of your customers and have them asking questions in no time!

So what type of revenue can a retail program bring in? The National Coffee Association found in 2000 that 54% of the adult population of the United States drinks coffee daily (typically in the morning). So if you have 150 customers a day, then about 75 of them drink a minimum of seven cups of coffee a week and it could very well be at home. This statistic really gives you an idea of the amount of sales you can acquire, even when the customer is at home. A weaker whole bean program probably sells around 15 pounds per week (with an average retail sales price of $15.00 per pound), which translates to about $225 per week and about $900 per month in whole bean sales alone. A stronger retail program has the potential to bring in upwards of $4,000 a month.

Apart from an increase on your bottom line, another major aspect that a successful retail program can bring is customer loyalty. It’s no secret that there are a lot of choices when it comes to coffee. So anytime one of your customers is not invested in your coffee, you are at risk of your customer being poached by a competitor. The best way to avoid this is to keep them invested in you, even when they walk out of your door. A simple way to think of it is; each time they drink a cup of your coffee at home, that’s one less cup of someone else’s coffee that they’re drinking. Like any product, the more and more a customer gets comfortable with it, the more likely they will continue to purchase it.

So what’s the best way to set up a retail coffee program in your shop? As mentioned before, it does not take much. Start small, with a few choices (perhaps your house blend, a popular flavor and a favorable single origin) —there’s no need to overwhelm or confuse your customers right from the get-go. Once you notice trends or your customers start making requests, feel free to make additions to your selection. Display your beans in a noticeable area, but make sure it’s not too obnoxious – the goal is to use your whole bean program as an upsell. You don’t want it to distract your customer from the rest of your menu. Most importantly, educate your staff. It is likely your customers will ask questions or recommendations before they pull the trigger on a purchase, so make sure your employees are knowledgeable on all of the blend components, origins, taste profile, etc.

Here at Stockton Graham & Co. we can supply all of our coffees in six count cases, of either 12oz. or 16oz. retail packaged bags, so you don’t have to do a thing! We can also provide custom and private labeling, along with point of sale material, to help grab your customer’s eye, each time they walk in the door! For more information or for additional tips on building your retail coffee program, give us a call at 1.800.835.5943, and your customer care associate will be more than happy to assist you!
