About Me:
Coffee farmers grow your coffee beans. I grow your coffee business.
About My Company:
Stockton Graham & Co. started as a coffeehouse in Raleigh, NC, in 1994. Looking to expand their selection of specialty coffees, our founders started roasting their own coffees right in the store. As word of their freshly roasted coffees spread around town, the founders began to supply their beans to local restaurants and specialty food stores. Eventually, the wholesale roasting operation outgrew the retail space.

In 1999, the wholesale division formally separated from the retail division and moved to its present location. The company grew tremendously in those early years, adding wholesale coffee accounts throughout the Carolinas. Additionally, we hired new associates with a range of skills to offer our customers not only the highest quality products but also outstanding customer service.

As the specialty coffee industry grew, we recognized that it would take more than just excellent coffees for cafés to succeed. We took our knowledge of specialty beverages and added those products to our wholesale offerings, starting with the syrups and sauces that worked so well in espresso drinks. Soon after came brewing and grinding equipment, espresso equipment, dispensing accessories, and much more.

In 2000, our co-founder and then current team members decided that the company's old name, Classic Coffees Roasting Company, no longer described the company and its mission adequately. After much research and assistance from key outside advisors, the Company formally changed their name to Stockton Graham & Co. An overall corporate identity was also developed to reflect the new mission as a specialty coffee roaster and beverage distributor.

Today, Stockton Graham & Co. is proud to offer innovative beverages with individual service. The journey into taste discoveries has only begun.
