Our Story

Origin matters. Our great grandfather Leonardo Alarcon began collecting and sorting coffee beans in southwest Venezuela in 1909. Countless cups of fresh, roast-to-order coffee followed.

Become a Wholesaler

We roast, package, and deliver products internationally. Our staff can assist with all purchasing needs, while our private label program helps increase awareness of your brand.



Our handcrafted specialty coffees are custom roasted. First-class equipment and personnel bring out our beans’ optimum flavor.


We use one-way valve foil bags, carefully package our coffee immediately after roasting, and guarantee the freshest cup.


Orinoco locates and purchases its beans and teas from some of the finest production regions across the globe.


We go to bed thinking about the day’s roasts, dream about Fair Trade, and wake up thinking about bean origin and size.


Our family has followed a deliberate path to provide our customers with fresh, intense flavors and fragrant blends.


Orinoco is a firm believer in Fair Trade, and has been certified by Fair Trade USA to offer a variety of socially responsible products.
