A turn-key specialty coffee roastery in the Los Angeles area is seeking to exchange an ownership opportunity to a new operations partner.

 

Calioh Coffee Roasters is currently looking to add to our ownership team. We are specifically looking for a partner to engage in all aspects of operating and managing our roastery, cafe, and wholesale program. We want a self starter with an entrepreneurs spirit, who also knows coffee well. This is an opportunity to achieve an ownership stake in a successful specialty coffee operation without the risks and delays of starting from the ground up. Our mission is to provide intentional exposure and access to specialty coffee and introduce the next-wave coffee paradigm to an abundant audience.

 

Calioh Coffee began with a strong start. Today we continue adding wholesale accounts while also experiencing growth in e-commerce. In our third year of business we are experiencing greater market penetration and brand recognition. Across the board our exposure is increasing. Our website traffic, Yelp activity, social media activity, and business-to-business referrals are all through the roof. Most notably, we are in the process of opening a cafe in Ventura County.

 

Calioh Coffee Roasters is a limited liability corporation located in Ventura, California. Calioh Coffee, LLC was first established in 2015. In August 2016 we began officially trading as Calioh Coffee Roasters. Calioh Coffee is certified organic to the National Organic Program standard and all of the coffees that we offer are of specialty grade and certified organic. Most are also ethically and environmentally conscious in various other ways. We offer top of the line equipment to our wholesale partners through distributor relationships with these manufactures: La Marzocco, Mazzer, Nuova Simonelli, Victoria Arduino, Baratza, Micro Matic, Chemex, Espresso Parts, Not Neutral, and Keep Cup.

 

At Calioh Coffee we roast on a Giesen — perhaps the best roaster currently on the market. It has a thirty-pound per hour output capacity and is capable of generating $624,000 of annual gross revenue. We made plans in advance to allow easy scalability when the time comes, including utility improvements which will allow for easy installation of a larger roasting machine, or multiples. We currently use a 2016 Sprinter van for local service and deliveries.

 

The roasting space is 1,468 square feet and features a modern/industrial front office space and ground level roll-up warehouse door. The space was completely remodeled. Improvements include: resurfacing of all floors; new electrical outlets, light switches and light fixtures; paint, remodeled bathroom, and stainless steel sink. The shop also features professional coffee lab equipment.

 

Ownership percentage and final negations will be discussed with qualified partner. Training on all aspects of the business is guaranteed, but our new partner must have specialty coffee knowledge and an understanding of basic business fundamentals.

 

Please submit a letter of interest and a short bio via email so that we can better understand how you’ll fit in with or current operation. There is so much more to share about this unique opportunity, so please be sure to inquire.
