Thankful Thursdays

Posted by

What are we sharing on Thursdays? Good news!

I’m so proud of my team. We are a humble group of coffee loving people and collectively love to show our support for each other and our community. Any time an opportunity arises to support a local cause or attend an event, my team signs their name on the volunteer sheet right under mine without thinking twice.

Community support has always been a priority for our family-owned business. From the cherry picker to the coffee farmer to the truck driver delivering the beans right to our door, but we also donate to special causes, support fundraisers, and employ those who have difficulties finding a job.

Being employed at Valerio Coffee Roasters not only brings you a paycheck, but also a sense of pride in a job well done and the opportunity to lend a hand to someone in need. We look beyond and encourage those that may have been incarcerated, homeless, or fighting an addiction and focus on their excitement to work, skills they have, because we know a job is a reason to get going each day and hope for a future. Jobs builds self-esteem, and brings us together as a community.

We are able to provide for our employees and the coffee community because of the support of our customers. And so, we thank you!

Every other Thursday we will share a story about a Valerio Coffee Roaster customer who supports us and makes a difference in the community. It’s our chance to give thanks. We ask that you show your support too – visit our customers' locations and shop local.

Stay tuned for our first featured customer!

With gratitude,

Anthony Valerio

Owner & Roastmaster

Valerio Coffee Roasters Sponsors City Bright Cleanup Day on Saturday, February 16, 2019

Whether you visit, live, or work in the Philadelphia area, two problems are evident: a huge homeless population and city streets littered with trash. It’s fitting that two locals, childhood friends Anthony Valerio and Adam Kesselman, are joining efforts to make a dent in both problems at the same time. Adam Kesselman founded City Bright, [...]

All Purpose Coffee Dry Rub Recipe

I like to cook. And I like coffee. Marrying the two is my version of heaven. One of my favorite ways to do this is to use coffee to season and prepare my meats. My latest attempt was a dry rub. It was good, but I felt it was missing something, so I contacted my friend, [...]

Here are three: Natural Process. This is the first and longest [...]

Cold Brewed Coffee. It’s Still Trending Hot.

Cold brewed coffee is no longer yesterday’s coffee. Maybe it’s not a secret anymore, but iced coffee use to be a coffee shop’s leftovers. That day’s unsold coffee – refrigerated overnight, or even worse – hot coffee poured over a cup of ice. I cringe at the thought. While somewhat refreshing, when prepared this way, the [...]
