Why CoffeeTec

CoffeeTec is known as the “Amazon” of the coffee industry, providing new and used coffee roasters along with every piece of equipment you could possibly need for crafting your roast.  

Here at CoffeeTec, the mission is to help our clients in every way possible along their coffee roasting journey, achieving the success they deserve. We're made up of professionals from all areas of the coffee industry with experience from bean to cup.

We provide help for your start-up, plant growth, expansion and even plant relocation. For instance, we relocated a plant from London to El Salvador resulting in both clients being extremely satisfied with the entire experience.  CoffeeTec also assisted in a new roaster shipment and install in Kenya, handling all African ISO requirements. Our lead engineer takes on these challenges and more and definitely earns his pay! We’re here to help along the entire process!

CoffeeTec History

With over 4 decades of building relationships and transacting in the coffee industry, we've traveled down the coffee roads from origin and production to complete plant development and relocation. We bring all this experience into our relationships allowing us to alleviate any foreseen challenges that may arrive along the way. Our success comes with experiencing our customer's successes.

CoffeeTec has been around for 47 years and starting with the likes of Alfred Peet (Peet’s Coffee) and Howard Shultz (Starbucks) back in Berkeley many moons ago. Today, we still sell products to Starbucks and many other big names in the business. As important, we also focus on entrepreneurs just getting started as well as those veteran roasters that need a helping hand, education, and critical advice. This allows them to fine tune their roasts, become more efficient in all processing, and make critical business decisions in their coffee experiences.
