About Ferris Coffee
Ferris Coffee is a family-owned and operated company with a heritage that dates back to 1924. Perfecting the taste of Ferris coffees and nuts for nearly a century, they provide the highest-quality plant-grown food products available, including globally imported beans.
Focusing on education, Ferris Coffee employees share their passion, knowledge, and expertise with the community regularly. Launching "The Foundry" (or a series of classes designed to create a more educated and collaborative coffee industry) Ferris Coffee encourages the general public, retailers, roasters and production managers to demand more when it comes to quality and presentation.
Expanding to 3 locations and a food truck, this business is one to watch as an upcoming importer/exporter.
