The New England Coffee company was found in 1916 by the Dostou and Kaloyanides families. The founders created the company with the belief in giving the highest standards of products and services to its customers. Those same beliefs are still being maintained after more than 90 years in business.
In the early years following the company’s founding, they established their headquarters in a building located in Boston. Back then, hand roasted coffee was still delivered to customers by a wagon and horses. Not until 1918, when the company bought their first truck, did they improve their method of coffee delivery. It was also in that year that more family members started to join business. In 1966, the company moved in to what is now its new headquarters, located at 100 Charles St, Malden, Massachusetts.
Over the years, New England Coffee has acquired five buildings. The company has expanded their manufacturing, as well as packaging facilities and equipment. Currently, the company is considered to be the largest privately owned coffee roaster. The company’s mission has remained the same in all the years that it has been existing, and that is to buy premium coffee, sell that premium coffee and give the best service that they can give.
Among New England Coffee’s products include flavored coffee, decaffeinated coffee, roasted coffee (light, medium and dark) and gourmet coffee. Aside from their wide variety of coffee products, the company also offers gift baskets and novelty items (like tumblers, t-shirts and mugs).
In January 2011, New England Coffee partnered with Alice.com in order to provide free delivery of the company’s premium coffees to its customers. In March 2011, New England Coffee introduced its latest coffee products, which are all Select Dark Roast. As part of the product’s promotion, it produced a travel mug, which has also been set to a darker color.
