Orinoco Coffee & Tea’s coffee roots began in 1909 when our great grandfather Leonardo Alarcon first started collecting and sorting coffee beans for a local coffee exporter in southwest Venezuela. Like the Orinoco River that flows through our homeland of Venezuela, our family has traveled many miles west, then north and finally east, settling near the seaboard of the Atlantic Ocean. While we currently call Columbia, Maryland home, we still have many family members and friends in beautiful Venezuela -- a country rich in coffee, but also economic and political turmoil, as this International Spotlight: Venezuela post by Specialty Coffee Retailer describes so well. "My

Bloomberg BusinessWeek reports today that Arabica-coffee futures capped the biggest rally in six weeks as dry conditions dim prospects for output in Brazil, the world’s top producer and exporter. Says one analyst, “If the worst-case scenario materializes, we could have a severe global-supply deficit in 2014-2015, and that could send prices to $3.” Read entire post here.

While many large coffee sellers like Starbucks have a year or more supply of coffee beans stockpiled away, there is concern consumers will soon see a price hike for their favorite morning ritual because of the current drought situation in Brazil. But will that stop them from buying? According to Bloomberg, probably not. Seems U.S. coffee drinkers are "very ritualistic." Says Paul Christopher, the St. Louis-based chief international strategist at Wells Fargo Advisors, “There’s very low price-elasticity-of-demand for coffee. Would people who like coffee regularly substitute tea, or soda, if prices rise? The answer is ‘No.’” One coffee lover equates grabbing a Cup of Joe

Coffee prices have surged over the last several weeks because of drought conditions in Brazil. If you like a good scare, take a look at today's investment.com coffee commodity report to see just how dramatic the price of this commodity has changed over the last several weeks. (Not recommended for the faint of heart.) Says Orinoco Coffee & Tea CEO, Pedro Ramirez in a recent post, “This is troubling news for the industry. I think one of the most difficult things to explain to our customers when they hear that coffee prices are on the rise is that the price of coffee we pay today is

Oh, we are happy March is here. That means St. Patrick's Day is around the corner and spring is nearly here. It also gets us thinking about a few of our favorite products we love to enjoy this time of the year.   Harney & Sons Irish Breakfast Tea Like most traditional Irish blends, this is a good way to start your morning. This product is 100% Assam and takes milk and sugar well. We find this Irish tea to be more refined than others. Twenty tea bags per box. Each tea bag brews a 6- to 8-oz. cup of tea.   Orinoco Irish Cream

How will the drought in Brazil affect the price of your favorite Cup of Joe? It’s the kind of headline we never like to see. On February 19, Bloomberg Businessweek reported: “Coffee Posts Biggest Two-Day Gain in 11 Years on Brazil Drought.” “This is troubling news for the industry,” says Pedro Ramirez, CEO, Orinoco Coffee & Tea. “I think one of the most difficult things to explain to our customers when they hear that coffee prices are on the rise is that the price of coffee we pay today is really a projection of what the future crop price will be three, six or nine

This winter season we ask, which will you choose to be, NAUGHTY or spice?   NEW Featured Coffee: Orinoco Dark Devil Blend Just naughty enough to be devilishly good Oh something dark and devilish this way comes! We’ve created a new blend for the winter season and it’s just naughty enough to be devilishly good. Our Dark Devil Blend is sinfully smooth, dark, and velvety. Few can escape the temptation of its chocolaty aroma.

Those of us who love coffee know that there’s nothing like a really GOOD cup of Joe. For some of us, the difference between a “decent” and a “great” tasting coffee can determine where we eat breakfast in the morning and where we meet a client later in the afternoon. When you work for a company that roasts high quality beans each day, you become even more of a connoisseur. Because you gotta try the products, right? (It’s a tough job, but somebody has to do it.) We asked Orinoco sales associate Megan Levis a very tough question -- “If you had

Believe it or not, when Orinoco first started, our beans were roasted and packaged in separate locations in Maryland, and then stored in a home garage before being taken out for delivery! Since its founding in the late 1990’s, Pedro and Juan Carlos Ramirez have twice expanded
