The Jo Coffee® Certified
Organic coffee brand was
originally started to
serve the growing demand for
coffee lovers shopping on
It turns out, the brand has been
an incredibly huge hit with
Amazon Prime shoppers
throughout the entire United
States. The growth has been way
beyond our wildest expectations
and continues to grow very rapidly.
Jo Coffee® is one of Amazon's
highest rated organic coffee
brands with over 5000 positive
coffee reviews and feedback.
Jo Coffee® is a registered trademarked
brand and subsidiary coffee business of Specialty Java Inc., (Founded
2002) and is a member of the Specialty Coffee Association of America, The
Roaster's Guild, Rainforest Alliance, Fair Trade USA and Slow Food USA.
Specialty Java Inc. produces several popular
control brands (Jo Coffee®,
Specialty Java) and many successful private
label coffee brands of gourmet
specialty coffee in three
separate roasting facilities,
private labeling systems. We
offer a variety of custom
roasting/packaging options. Our
for K-Cup® brewers were the
first certified organic,
NON-GMO, eco friendly single
serve, produced in the Midwest. The
Jo Coffee® and Kick Coffee™
bagged lines are
produced in our smallest, hand-crafted, artisan micro
roastery. JoCoffee.com bagged coffee orders are roasted
and shipped on demand.
Amazon's open-door policy for
small artisan brands has been a
game-changer for our business.
Their business model, versus the
typical large corporate
chain model, is winning in the
marketplace in many categories.
We are blessed to not have to
accept the predatory terms many large
chains and grocery distributors perpetrate
on artisan producers. The rapid
DTC distribution and inventory
turns through Amazon's customer
driven demographic has caught
the attention of retailers
nationwide. The game continues
to change even more with Amazon's
purchase of Whole Foods.
Instead, our Jo Coffee® brand is
already in many hundreds
of independent grocery stores
across the U.S.
providing them a level of exclusivity.
Founder Kevin Kapaun's passion for coffee excellence had roots in the
Caribbean Island of Jamaica in the early 1980's. Tasting Jamaican Blue
Mountain coffee, his vision was created to import exclusive coffee beans
from around the world.
Kevin's hobby of importing and roasting coffee in the late 1990's for
friends and family was headed for something bigger.
Kevin shared some pure Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee he
roasted with his friend
Larry Graham, (Rock n Roll Hall of Fame bass player for Sly & the Family Stone)
who then encouraged Kevin to start a coffee roastery. He was his first customer and
the rest is history, as they say.
Kevin finds reading the passionate
coffee reviews submitted by
customers extremely gratifying.
Knowing he has literally
put a smile on the face of
many hundreds of
thousands of customers across the USA when they sip the fruits of his art,
brings him a deep sense of satisfaction and fulfillment. He feels the
opportunity to do something in your life that you truly love, is the best
reward of all.
We purchase only from the top 2% of all Arabica raw
coffee worldwide through direct sourcing and through
the dedicated team of cupping experts from Cafe Imports
and Royal Coffee New York. Before we ever purchase our specialty beans,
they have passed the expert analysis and cupping tastes of
our team of experts.
We strive for coffee perfection in every hand-crafted artisan roast. We continually experiment
with new blends, roasting profiles, and search potential coffee varieties
for addition to our offerings. COFFEE PERFECTED!
While we are proud to offer USDA Certified Organic Coffee, Fair Trade
Certified, NON-GMO Coffee, we also recognize and give honor to the many small coffee
growers around the planet who simply cannot afford expensive certification. To
reject these valuable farmers would go against the values we hold dearly.
In all our coffees, we buy only the finest, highest
grade specialty green coffee from around the world and
provide these precious coffees under our various
brands, including our Jo Coffee brand.
