Our philosophy is simple – provide the choicest products at the best prices so that you can give customers the value they expect while still maximizing the bottom line.

Arabica & Robusta Beans! Diﬀerent coﬀee beans create diﬀerent ﬂavors in the cup. While there are several species of the shrub Coﬀea, the plant that produces the berries from which coﬀee is extracted, the two most cultivated plants are the Arabica and Robusta. Of the two main species grown, Arabica coﬀee is more highly regarded than Robusta coﬀee.
The Arabica Bean – Grown in the highlands, this bean can be found at an altitude of 2,000 to 6,000 feet. The Arabica bean grows on a very delicate plant that is slow to mature. Its ﬂavor is rich and aromatic, which carries over into the ﬁnished product. Arabica beans are sought out for their aroma and ﬂavor. These beans are used in darker roasted blends, premium proprietary blends, ﬂavored coﬀees, as well as core hot and black coﬀee blends.
The Robusta Bean – The lowland Robusta bean can be found at 2,000 feet. It grows at a rapid pace; has a strong, bitter taste and is not very aromatic. This bean is much higher in caﬀeine than the Arabica. The Robusta bean is used to provide the full-bodied taste and high caﬀeine concentration in European espresso blends. It is also commonly blended with Arabica in commercial coﬀee blends. All Citavo coﬀee blends are made from 100% Arabica beans except for Citavo Special Blend, which is a combination of Arabica and Robusta beans.

The Iconic Cup Many diﬀerent factors come together to make a great cup of coﬀee – bean origins, varieties, roast styles, and brewing techniques. All this complexity can be intimidating for customers who just want to serve a good cup of coﬀee. That’s why Sysco likes to cut through the complexity and talk about “iconic” cups of coﬀee that operators might aspire to serve. In today’s coﬀee world, there are a few dominant brands that consumers identify with. These leading national brands have chosen to serve a distinct cup of coﬀee with speciﬁc features that coﬀee drinkers are drawn to. For example, a high-end coﬀee house brand tends to oﬀer a full-bodied dark roast, while a major donut player prefers a medium roast with rich acidity and body. The leading QSR is serving a medium-bodied, medium-roasted breakfast blend, while your typical corner diner oﬀers a lighter coﬀee that patrons can enjoy all day and with a bottomless cup quantity. At Sysco, we match the standards of these power coﬀee brands with our Citavo brand coﬀee blends, which emulate these “iconic” coﬀee experiences. Choose the experience you want to oﬀer your customers, then selecting your Citavo blend will be simple.

4 Key Brewing Fundamentals Preparing a great cup of coﬀee is easy with a few brewing suggestions. Following a consistent brewing process is key; any change will aﬀect the overall taste.
1. Coﬀee to Water Ratio – Typically this is referred to as the throw weight. Not enough coﬀee will cause over extraction, while too much coﬀee will cause under extraction.
2. Grind – Beans being too coarse will result in under extraction; too ﬁne and a bitter ﬂavor will develop from being overly extracted. About 70% of all positive coﬀee ﬂavorings are extracted in the ﬁrst third of the brewing process.
3. Contact Time – The amount of time the water is in contact
Brewing Tip: Don’t take a cup of coﬀee from the pot until it’s done brewing. Removing the cup will interrupt the balance of the brew and will aﬀect the taste of the remaining coﬀee in the pot.
with the coﬀee will aﬀect the taste of the brew. Be careful with this step. If the water is in contact for too short of a time it will cause under extraction, too long and it will lead to over extraction.
4. Water Temperature – The ideal brewing temperature is between 95 and 205 degrees. Water that’s too cold will lead to under extraction, and water that’s too hot will lead to over extraction.
Coﬀee & Dessert Pairings The rich ﬂavor of coﬀee pairs well with the sweet taste of dessert. Coﬀee complements most desserts, and oﬀering the right selection will boost check averages and margins. Simply match the roast or richness of your coﬀee choice with popular desserts to create a winning combination. The following list will help you create exceptional pairings:
Simple Cakes – Pound cake and angel food cake go well with lighter roasts. Pair with 100% Colombian Traditional Roast and 100% Arabica Royal Mountain Roast.
Fruit Pastry – Fruit pies, cobblers, dumplings, and cakes such as pineapple upside down cake complement a medium roast. Try matching these fruit-based desserts with 100% Arabica Gold Roast, 100% Arabica Royal Mountain Roast, or our Special Blend.
Creamy Desserts – Whipped and creamy desserts like tiramisu and cream pies pair nicely with a medium to rich roast. Couple these desserts with 100% Colombian Traditional Roast or 100% Arabica West Coast Blend.
Cakes & Pies – Whether it’s a classic sheet cake or a pumpkin pie, medium to rich roasts couple nicely with these selections. Cakes, cobblers and fruit pies pair with medium roasts such as 100% Arabica Gold Roast, 100% Arabica Royal Mountain Roast, or our Special Blend.
Tart Citrus Desserts – For tart desserts like lemon meringue or key lime pie, serve a medium roast coﬀee blend like our 100% Arabica Gold Roast or our 100% Arabica West Coast Blend.
Chocolate Desserts – Rich chocolate desserts are the perfect match for our 100% Arabica French Roast.
Cheesecakes – Richer coﬀees like the 100% Arabica French Roast or 100% Arabica West Coast Blend belong with your New York cheesecake oﬀerings.

Heat Up Sales with Flavored Coﬀee, Tea, and Cocoa Drinks Pour on the proﬁts with hot beverage sales America’s obsession with gourmet coﬀee and tea is recession-proof. According to the National Coﬀee Association’s 2012 National Coﬀee Drinking Trends study, coﬀee consumption has been steadily increasing, up more than 17% over the past two years. Moreover, tea is quickly becoming the hottest drink on the market because of its antioxidant qualities and the increasing prevalence of retail tea stores. And the popularity of chocolate festivals across the country is helping to drive demand for hot cocoa to consumers of all ages. From a simple cup of caﬀé Americano to gourmet espresso drinks, hot teas and cocoas, operators can maximize proﬁts by oﬀering a wide variety of beverage ﬂavoring options. And, Monin Gourmet Flavorings oﬀers a full range of convenient ﬂavors in the most popular and seasonal ﬂavors.
Warm things up with winter ﬂavors To encourage traﬃc on slow evenings and to increase beverage and food sales, host special tasting events. Print coﬀee or tea suggestions on the tasting event menu, like wine pairings. Featuring a “Flavor of the Month” or a signature drink is another way to boost sales.

Cream for Your Cup For many coﬀee lovers, cream isn’t just a garnish, it’s a necessity. Having a quality choice of cream can complete the coﬀee experience. Dean Morningstar brings you sweet cream selections from International Delight.
Unﬂavored International Delight Half & Half cream is the preferred choice among consumers. Made with real dairy, this cream is speciﬁcally packaged to oﬀer a 60-day guaranteed shelf life; it’s also kosher-certiﬁed. International Delight oﬀers a non-dairy unﬂavored cream as well.
Flavored Allow your customers to choose from an assortment of ﬂavors to create a customized, gourmet cup of coﬀee in seconds.

Bulk cream dispensers are more cost-eﬀective for high-volume operations, making them an ideal choice for operators selling over 100 cups a day. The dispensers are designed to handle heavy use, but are easy to set up and operate. Bulk dispensers require minimal cleaning and oﬀer labor savings when compared to reﬁlling carafes.

Hot Tea Basics According to an ancient Chinese legend dating back to 2737 B.C., hot tea was ﬁrst discovered by accident. While hot tea has been a popular beveragee for centuries, the tea bag wasn’t invented until 1908 when a New York importer named Thomas Sullivan thought that shipping tea in silk bags rather than large tins would be easier for his retailers. Tea bags then becamee a successful choice for steeping in addition to being a space-saver. Sysco oﬀers House Recipe tea bags for premium black, decaﬀeinated black, green tea, and darjeeling blend teas. Our teas require diﬀerent steeping times to help bring out their full ﬂavor. > 3-5 minutes for black tea > 2-3 minutes for green tea

Proactive Health Management. With increasing focus on having a balanced and healthy life, consumers are interested in tea’s valuable antioxidants. Scientiﬁc reports claim that daily tea consumption may increase longevity. Authenticity. Consumers continue to place more value on “real” or “pure” products and brands. Ethnic and Exotic. These categories are of growing interest est to consumers. Exotic products oﬀer a sense of adventure and appreciation for foreign customs and cuisines.

Sysco carries White Lion Traditional Tea, which produces high quality tea by following the “orthodox” method of manufacturing. The top two tea leaves and the undeveloped leaf bud are carefully handpicked. Tea pickers may pluck up to 60 pounds of leaves and buds in a day, requiring nearly 3,000 shoots to producee eaa one pound of tea. The handpicked tea leaves are then brought to the factory area to begin processing. While all true tea comes from the Camellia Sinensis plant, a warm weather evergreen, it’s how the tea leafs are processed that determines their type. No matter the origin of the tea leaf, there are four kinds of teas. These types are white, green, oolong, and black. White Lion Tea oﬀers these teas in a variety of ﬂavors and packages to meet your needs, resulting in a smooth and reﬁned tea.
