HR professionals and business owners – you have more than enough to do all day!  But in order to attract and retain the best talent, it’s crucial to give your employees what they want: healthy, delicious snacks and beverages to stay fueled up for a productive workday.  Aroma Coffee can handle everything needed to keep your company’s break room stocked with the types of snacks to surprise and delight your hardworking team. 

Our representatives can help you design a snack food program for your office that saves you time – and believe it or not – also saves you money. Best of all, we maintain it so you don’t have to worry about a thing or lift a finger.  Not only do we offer literally thousands of varieties of sweet treats and savory bites, but we can also deliver fresh and dried fruits, cereals, and other items to satisfy cravings at all hours of the day. 

Bulk snack selection . . .  Aroma Coffee offers dozens of snacks to be used in our refillable bulk snack dispensers.  We offer everything from crunchy and savory, to chewy and sweet. Options include nut mixes, candy mixes, dried fruits, and much more.  Some of our favorites include the following, but you can explore our entire bulk snack selection catalogue here!

Buffalo Stampede

  • Buffalo Stampede – Buffalo Nuts®, Hickory Smoked Almonds, Butter Toffee Peanuts, Guacamole Bites, Everything Sticks
  • Hot Millenium Mix™ – Sunflower Seeds, Hot Nacho Cheese Peanuts, Cajun Hot Corn Sticks, Taco Sticks, Almonds, Pumpkin Seeds, Shelled Pistachios, Toasted Corn
  • Chia ReCharged Stix Mix™ (no artificial ingredients) – Chia Sticks, Cranberries, Almonds, Dark Chocolate Chunks, Yogurt Raisins, Pineapple (Low Sugar/No Sulfur), White Cocoa Chips 
  • Mango Tango™ – Cashews, Coconut Toffee Peanuts, Mango, Pumpkin Seeds
  • S’mores and More Mix – bulk Honey Graham Toasters, Chocolate Chunks, Peanuts, Mini Marshmallows, Dried Strawberries 

S’mores & More

Improving the office snack selection is also a great way to encourage positivity around your workplace, and to build community around the food station.  Like with the coffee pot or water cooler, in these spaces collaborations brew and ideas percolate (pardon the puns). And as far as your HR team in your office is concerned, offering a diverse line-up of food options is a fabulous perk. Especially important for many millennials and Gen Xers,  employees are increasingly tending to perceive intangible employee benefits as important. Give the next generation of workforce what they’re looking for by upgrading your office snack selection.

Now, you’re probably thinking that all of this “wellness” and “community-building” sounds expensive.  I’d like to politely inform you that this is an incorrect assumption! Think about it: at the grocery store, is it cheaper per ounce to purchase individual bags of Cheetos, or is it cheaper per ounce to buy the “family size” bag of Cheetos?  Of course, it’s much cheaper per ounce to invest in a bulk quantity rather than a single serving, where you’re paying for convenience and packaging.

Luckily, our bulk dispensers make serving convenient with less mess, and the Aroma Coffee team handles refilling, clean-up, and routine maintenance, so convenience is still adding value through your bulk snack delivery.  You save money over the long term because of the lower pricing scaled by volume. Plus, all the “good snacks” are less likely to walk off right after your delivery, and people can control portion size, so there’s far less waste. 

It’s clear to many HR professionals and great managers that offering unique benefits to employees creates a competitive advantage.  Bulk snack offerings are changing the break-room game, and many companies are getting creative to attract and retain the best employees. 

At Aroma Coffee, we believe in the power of food and beverage to grow workplace community and culture, by bringing people together and encouraging wellness.  We work hard every day to deliver great service and products with a smile. View our entire bulk snack selection catalogue here

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.

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!

Where was Kahwa Coffee Discovered?

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.

Where is Kahwa Coffee Roasted?

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.
