Our Company

InterAmerican Coffee

Since 1983, InterAmerican has been supplying specialty green coffee to roasters across North America.

Through our 49 sister companies in 27 countries, as well as through old and new relationships that we consistently seek out, nurture and forge, we source and import some of the world’s best coffees. These include certified Organic, Fair Trade and Rainforest Alliance coffees, quality and price options from traceable blend components to unique small-lot offerings, and coffees through special projects designed to improve both cup quality and the lives and futures of coffee growers and producers.

We have Trading teams and Quality Control labs in Providence, Houston and San Diego, which include more than a dozen certified Q Graders. And proudly, we’re ­­­part of the Neumann Kaffee Gruppe (NKG)—the world’s leading green coffee company—which gives us access to numerous other quality-control labs and on-the-ground experts around the globe.

NKG’s global strength and breadth help us to consistently acquire the coffees our customers love—and to keep discovering beautiful new ones. Our decades of experience have refined and strengthened our logistics operations. And the expertise and passion our teams bring to work each day help us to positively impact the supply chain, both locally and globally. Together, these factors make for a company we couldn’t be prouder of.

We invite you to cup with us, train with us and explore with us. And to share how we can help you to keep growing along with us.

Neumann Kaffee Gruppe

In 1990, the Neumann Kaffee Gruppe (NKG) was created through the integration of the numerous international Neumann and Rothfos companies. Today, it’s the world’s leading green coffee service group, consisting of 49 companies in 27 countries and nearly 2,500 highly skilled employees. Green coffee is its one and only focus.

NKG is present in every key coffee market in the world, offering a range of quality-focused services and products along the green coffee value chain. For coffee producers and roasters large and small, it’s established itself as a reliable and straightforward partner.

Neumann Gruppe GmbH, in Hamburg, Germany, directs and coordinates all the activities of NKG companies, providing guidance that helps to foster close connection between the sister companies, while also respecting their independence.

NKG has a been a highly successful, family-run business for four generations and is today under the leadership of David M. Neumann.

Our Mission

At InterAmerican, it’s our mission to source and deliver high-quality green coffee to specialty roasters across North America; to use our global supply chain to source the finest coffees and bring increased choices to our customers; and to offer our customers superior logistics, marketing expertise and financial resources.

Our decades of experience in green coffee have also shown us the roles we can play in helping to ensure a healthy future for specialty coffee. So it’s also our mission to seek out, build, support and foster sustainable relationships—with our suppliers, our customers, our communities and the environment.

I've been do business with InterAmerican since 1990. They are a great company to work with.  They alert me to changes in the market and make sure I'm kept up to date.  They know the profiles I'm looking for with my coffee and I trust them to hit the mark everytime. In all the years, I've worked with only two people, Guy and Lisa.  The personal service I receive is important to me.  They know my company and what I'm looking for!

InterAmerican has become my “go-to” source for exceptional coffees of known pedigree, accompanied by the marketing collateral needed to sell those coffees to consumers overwhelmed by choice. The buyers at InterAmerican have established the crucial producer relationships that all roasters desire, and they make those relationships accessible to even the smallest roasters.

InterAmerican Coffee is not what they seem.  Sure, from the outside it feels like a huge company that can't handle the needs of a small, focused, quality driven company, but this is not the case.  IAC has given us the streamlining, quality seeking, and streamless purchasing we needed to succeed in our field and that is why we choose to do business with them!

O’Henry’s Coffees was founded in 1993.  Our founder roasted in the origianl store which was fairly rare that long ago.  It became apparent very early on that IAC needed to be a prime partner in helping us source coffees of quality and consistency.  Something that stands out for us is the level of communication they have.  Our contact, Crystal Reyes, keeps me informed BEFORE issues become issues.  When inventories are low, when the market is changing or when an origin is not producing high quality she lets me know.  Because of this we give better service to our wholesale customers year after year.
