Sourcing our Coffee

You will know where the coffee you serve comes from, the farmers and cooperatives name and their social and environmental contributions, the region where the coffee was grown, the elevation, the soil types. When it was harvested, how it was processed and how it was purchased. You will find comfort in knowing the purchase was made directly with the farmers and coops with a premium payment ensuring vitality in our trade and the future of the specialty coffee industry.
Roasting Our Coffee
We roast our coffees by hand and on demand using traditional roasting methods to unlock each individual flavor. For our international distributors, we roast your coffee the same day it ships to you and promote smaller more frequent deliveries to ensure freshness. Using reliable transport companies, we currently ship our coffees from our roastery in the Czech Republic to countries between France and Russia, so distance within Europe is not an issue.&mdash We put so much time and care into our coffee because we know it is not just another beverage, it defines who we are, and for wholesale, who you are...and what we care for......the artisan coffee roasters style of life. &mdash A flavor that can be appreciated by even those with the finest palate.

Our Hot Chocolates
We first developed our hot chocolate blends 5 years ago after months of cooperation with some of the worlds most prestigious chocolatiers in the US, Belgium and France. We wanted traceability in our chocolate similar to our coffee so we work with single origin chocolates. Our current Noir (dark chocolate) is from Ecuador and our Lait is from Vanuatu (milk chocolate). For our white chocolate we work with a blend of certified organic chocolates. We offer our chocolates as a service to our customers, it is no different than what a fine chef can make in their kitchen. We use traditional methods of grinding blocks of real chocolate and blend them with starch and sugar when needed. Our chocolates are 80 - 90% real chocolate with no artificial additives, coloring or preservatives. They also are using by some of the finest establishments and exported to chocolate shops around Europe. We highly suggest you try our hot chocolate blends. We currently only offer wholesale 1 kilo bulk bags.

Espresso and Filter Machines
We at La Boheme Cafe know that it takes more than just fine coffee for a quality coffee program. It requires machines that you can rely on which also take care in the preparation of specialty coffee. Machines which can control temperature and pressure not to stress the coffee in its final stages of preparation. Machines that combine innovation, reliability and ease of use. Machines like Dalla Corte espresso machines (www.dallacorte.com), Marco filter machines (www.marco.ie) and for our office wholesale accounts Technivorm brewers (www.technivorm.com). Please see the links for more information about these machines or contact us for a more in depth presentation of these products and technologies and why they are the choice at La Boheme Cafe.
For our local customers we install the machines and start you on a training program on how to use and maintain the machines and barista techniques on how to prepare proper coffee.
There is no better way for a restaurant, cafe or hotel bar to offer a more thorough and creative coffee offering than alternative brewing. True coffee connoisseurs love individually brewed servings of coffee, starting with a story of the farm, knowing its freshly roasted by La Boheme Cafe, ground immediately before brewing, having it brewed with the correct proportion of coffee / water / time and prepared with care for their enjoyment.
You can easily accomplish this with a wide selection of alternative brewing such as incorporating into your establishment a Hario drip bar, chemex coffee brewers, aeropress coffee brewers, table top vacuum pot service, french presses, etc..
Many of our European customers have 3 main misconceptions when it comes to alternative brewing, The first misconception is everyone just wants espresso or customers do not like filter coffee, the second is it takes too long or it is too complicated to prepare alternative brewing in their establishment and 3rd is their customer will not know the difference in quality for any preparation.
All of these are far from the truth. With the proper marketing of a coffee menu and training of bar staff, you too can offer these unique and fun options in your coffee offering with ease of preparation. We often inform customers that if preparation is a concern, they are in the wrong business. There is a routine for preparing any beverage. From the presentation of wine, to properly pulling a beer, to properly preparing a vacuum pot, it is all the same and it is only training and practice required.
For the establishments who fall into the 3rd category, and there is many of you, contact us immediately for a consultation before the competition in your neighborhood who understands coffee steal your clients.
