If you enjoy the great tasting coffee Atlanta’s restaurants and dining institutions serve, you have the Atlanta Coffee Supply Group to thank.
This summer, Atlanta Coffee Supply Group (ACSG) is celebrating its 20th anniversary as a specialty coffee and tea distributor for Atlanta and the Southeast. Since its inception in 1995, ACSG has not only become Atlanta’s premiere full-service distributor of hand-roasted coffee and premium iced tea for the foodservice industry, but also produces its own proprietary coffee and iced tea lines: Lakehouse Coffee and Blue Durango Iced Tea.
The Lakehouse Coffee line features 10 different blends that cover a wide range of tastes and profiles. Blue Durango Iced Tea offers three flavorful, craft blended teas (classic iced tea, an herbal iced tea and an antioxidant-rich green tea with fresh mint) to provide the ultimate refreshment. In addition to these two proprietary lines, ACSG’s product offerings include Lavazza coffees, Ghirardelli sauces, Mighty Leaf Tea, Rancilio espresso machines, Bunn coffee and tea equipment, Monin flavor syrups and Dr. Smoothie.
ACSG’s president and CEO Jonathan Silver takes pride in providing quality products. As public interest in chef-driven restaurants grew, so did Silver’s client list, which includes many of Atlanta’s most reputable restaurants, including Aria, Bones, Milton’s Cuisine & Cocktails and Sotto Sotto.
“We set out to change restaurateurs’ notions of what a cup of coffee should taste like at the end of a great meal,” Silver says. “Our push in the morning is knowing that when the day ends, we gave our best to make our customers’ jobs a little easier.”
Now they are celebrating 20 years.
ACSG has gained the respect of highly regarded chefs throughout the Southeast. “Blue Durango Iced Tea is the most flavorful iced tea I’ve ever had. I’ve been using it for about 8 years now, and nothing comes close,” says Derek Dollar, executive chef of Milton’s Cuisine & Cocktails. “I also drink Lakehouse Coffee’s Chef’s Blend every Sunday morning before brunch service.”
Lakehouse Coffee’s private label program offers foodservice providers personalized options by creating custom artwork for private label retail bags that are designed for resale at specific restaurant locations or to commemorate special events.
How about 20 more years…
Looking to the next 20 years for ACSG, Silver hopes to bring his Lakehouse Coffee products to the consumer market to offer serious coffee drinkers an unassuming addition to their times of reward and relaxation both at home and on the road.
