There is much to learn about the COVID-19 pandemic, but one thing we do know is that disinfecting frequently-touched areas and washing/sanitizing your hands are two known precautions everyone should be taking. 

Aroma Coffee is proud to announce a NEW partnership with a local distillery. The distillery has produced a large inventory of hand sanitizer in an effort to support the local community during this time of need. We are excited about the opportunity to utilize this partnership to provide this much-needed product along with our other services. We have both 50ml and 1.75ml bottles in stock that are ready to be delivered right to your door! Give us a call at (941) 371-9091 for more information.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend frequently cleaning and disinfecting areas such as tables, doorknobs, light switches, handles, desks, toilets, faucets, sinks, and electronics. The CDC also recommends additional washing/sanitizing of the hands after blowing one’s nose, coughing, sneezing, after using the restroom, before eating or preparing food, after contact with animals or pets, and before and after providing routine care for another person who needs assistance. 

At Aroma Coffee, we carry janitorial supplies such as hand sanitizer, toilet tissue, soap, and over 10,000 additional products. We’re here to help and support our community by offering our products and services that are desperately needed during this uncertain time.

From Clearwater to Naples, we will deliver your sanitation needs right to your door. Click here to contact us for quotes and details.

Stay well, stay safe, and stay sanitized! 

Forget the water cooler talk, let’s talk about the water cooler!

Introducing the ION drinking water appliance, a unique new bottle-free water cooler that makes all other water coolers obsolete.

A single sip of water from the ION will make you want to kick your old office water cooler to the curb. Made in the USA by Natural Choice Corporation the world’s innovator in drinking water systems, the ION frees you from bottled water by connecting directly to your tap water supply.  The system uses a 0.5-micron, commercial-grade carbon filtration system to remove impurities beyond just chlorine, taste, and odor. With ION, your drinking water is always bottle-free and equally important – it’s freshly filtered. Many bottleless water coolers have reservoirs or storage tanks that hold water for weeks or even months. ION’s unique design ensures every glass dispensed is freshly filtered—no more stagnant water from a hidden reservoir tank.

The ION water cooler is available in four color models, all of which serve your choice of hot, cold, ambient or sparkling water at the touch of a button. Designed to fit on most countertops, the ION™ makes a great office water cooler where space may be limited. The 9″ dispensing height easily fills cups, carafes, pitchers, and water bottles.

Be good to your body and your mind, and make the healthy, convenient choice to switch to ION.

Set up and installation is a breeze, too… mostly because you don’t have to do a thing!  Our dedicated Aroma Coffee reps will exceed your expectations with by performing ION’s hook-up to your water line and power supply. We will also set up the software that enables the machine to craft the beverage you’re craving, whether sparkling, hot, or not.  Your Aroma Coffee representative will also handle the recurring maintenance including checking the faucet, replacing the filter, and changing out drip trays. ION’s faucet and drip tray are easily removable and dishwasher safe if you wanted to DIY this task as it helps keep maintenance at a minimum and your ION operating like new.

If you buy a bottle of water every day for $1.99 at a convenience store, you are spending $726.35 yearly! Large cases of bottled water for big teams add up much more quickly.  In the United States, bottled water is quickly becoming the drink of choice. ION will pay for itself in savings and help you offer employees what they really want to enjoy while at work.

Call your Aroma Coffee representative today to schedule a demo of ION Bottleless Water Cooler.

This summer season has become Cold Brew season around the Aroma Coffee offices.  We have cold brew literally flowing from a tap what seems like 24-7. In the Sarasota and Naples area where we deliver most of our office coffee & tea products and janitorial supplies, summer is typically a bit quieter and we can get a lot of projects done that had been put off during “season.”  

It’s important to us to not sleep on the opportunity to make work happen this summer… enter Wandering Bear Cold Brew.  In their own words, it’s cold brew “so smooth you can drink it black. So strong you’ll #neverhibernate.” Goals.

We’re thrilled to have access to Wandering Bear Cold Brew cartons and boxes for coffee on tap to bring our office coffee customers even more options for your workday coffee fix.

Here’s some info, straight from the source, about the Wandering Bear Cold Brew brand and their team’s commitment to great-tasting coffee that gets the job done.

THE COMPANY

This whole thing started in 2013 when we showed up to a grad school classroom each carrying a mason jar of homemade cold brew coffee. Within months we had rented a small kitchen in Queens, NY, working tirelessly (and over-caffeinated) to figure out how to scale our homebrew. We were obsessed. More than four years later that passion remains, and Wandering Bear is on a mission to become a favorite part of your day, every day.

THE COFFEE

For us, it’s always been about two things: taste and strength. What else do you really care about when it comes to coffee? Our brew is undeniably bold (so it stands up to ice), but surprisingly smooth with a bright, chocolaty finish. And it’s always ready to drink (no morning mixology required). For beans, we’re always on the search for the best. Right now, we’re brewing a Fair Trade organic Arabica from central Peru.

OUR PACKAGING

We are proud to say that we are the original cold brew in a box. We realized early on that completely eliminating air and light from our packaging was the only way to keep your delicious cold brew fresh after you’ve opened it. Now, we’ve expanded our line up from the OG “coffee on tap” box to include a full line of single-serving ready-to-enjoy coffee “on the go” cartons. Like the box, they are phenomenal at preserving flavor and are perfectly packaged for the occasion. Whether on tap or on-the-go, we have a brew for you.


Cold Brew FAQ

Maybe we need to back up a moment.  What even is cold brew?  How is it different from regular coffee?  Why do all the hipsters love it so much? We’ll lean on our friends at Wandering Bear to help answer some general coffee questions.

What is cold brew iced coffee?

Cold brew is a type of iced coffee made by steeping coffee grounds in cold water for an extended period of time (between 12-24 hours). Traditional iced coffee is made by brewing hot coffee and then pouring it over ice. Unlike traditional iced coffee, the cold brew process eliminates heat and yields a bold, smooth coffee that’s low in acidity (and in our case, it has a rich chocolaty flavor).

What makes Wandering Bear cold brew so great?

We love cold brew because the process brings out the big, bold flavors of coffee while leaving behind some of the acids and oils that make traditional iced coffee taste so bitter. Our coffee has everything you love about coffee — rich chocolate and dark fruit notes, full body, and a surprisingly smooth finish — without the things you don’t, like bitterness or acidity. Because we really like our coffee (can you tell?), we package it in boxes that protect it from oxygen and light, the two factors that make coffee go stale.

Do I need to dilute Wandering Bear cold brew with milk or water?

Great question! Our coffee is ready-to-drink out of the box, so you don’t have to mess around with measuring out coffee and water before you’ve even had your morning coffee. That said, it’s your coffee, and it’s endlessly customizable: drink it straight black, with milk and sugar, in a smoothie, cocktail or add it to your favorite cold brew recipe.

What beans do you use in Wandering Bear cold brew?

We’re currently using a Fair Trade organic certified bean from Peru; we love this coffee and think it gives us the range of flavors that translate best to the cold brew method. The green beans are roasted fresh each week for every batch to capture the richness that makes our coffee so delicious.

Freshly ground coffee is a simple pleasure in life. Having freshly ground coffee can stimulate your senses and enhance the flavor of your favorite blends. A bean-to-cup machine is fully automated and does not require the use of a coffee grinder. So this simple pleasure becomes even more simple.

Traditionally, these machines are designed for larger offices or hotels that serve coffee at a high volume. Now, new machines are paving the way for a bean-to-cup experience in a cozy office with up to 50 people.

New to Aroma Coffee, The Sego espresso machine by Bravilor brings the possibility of bean-to-cup for a smaller office. The Sego is a fully automatic espresso machine with three canisters. One for coffee beans and two for instant ingredients such as topping (powdered milk) and cocoa. With the versatile Sego you can serve various drinks like Coffee crema, Café au lait, Cappuccino, Espresso, Americano, Latte Macchiato, Moccachino, and Hot Chocolate. All of course with the freshness of having your drink’s coffee beans ground instantly.

Because this machine is more compact, it can fit comfortably inside kitchenettes or small waiting rooms. The touch screen is user-friendly and offers over 30 choices of drink options so everyone enjoys their cup of java to their own specifications.
Enjoy the robust flavors of our gourmet blends by upgrading to our fine bean-to-cup brewers. The difference that this machine makes compared to classic coffee brewers is significant, especially for a coffee connoisseur. Try it for yourself, request the Sego today!

Kahwa Coffee Roasting Company opened its doors in sunny St. Petersburg, Florida in 2006. Aroma Coffee is proud to now carry Kahwa products for your office and commercial space!

Coffee was first discovered in the wild in Ethiopia in the Kaffa region. The Turkish name given to coffee, “kahve” evolved to “qahwa” in Arabic. The spelling differs according to the different countries but Kahwa is the original name for coffee throughout Africa. It evolved to café (in French) or caffe (in Italian) and remains common slang for coffee in France.

All Kahwa Coffee roasting is done at the production site in Tampa Bay, infusing a local taste to the beans. With over 15 years of experience in the coffee industry, Kahwa combines passion and expertise in their process. Kahwa Coffee roasters go through intensive training to make sure each bean will eventually become a cup coffee worth savoring!

The first Kahwa Coffee café opened in downtown St. Petersburg, FL to showcase their enthusiasm for great coffee and high quality coffee drinks. Sarasota has already begun to embrace the Kahwa brand as there are two Kahwa Coffee locations in the Sarasota area, one in Lakewood Ranch as well as one coffee shop in downtown Sarasota.

With a focus on the local community, Kahwa Coffee takes pride in working with and supporting nonprofit organizations in the Tampa Bay area, such as Big Cat Rescue.

At Aroma Coffee, we are thrilled to now carry Kahwa fraction packs for traditional coffee brewers, K-Cups for Keurig single-cup brewers and whole bean for bean-to-cup brewers.

We supply offices in Southwest Florida with the finest beverages and locally roasted coffees. Give us a call today to bring Kahwa and our other products into your office space >> 239-481-7262.
