Wynn Las Vegas Awards Fonte Coffee Roaster Its Coffee Contract

Latest Deal Strengthens Seattle-Based Fonte’s Position as Luxury Coffee Brand

SEATTLE, July 12 /PRNewswire/ — Wynn Las Vegas, the $2.7 billion new resort on the strip, offers luxury to all its guests — right down to the coffee. Fonte Coffee Roaster, Seattle’s premium coffee roaster, was awarded the biggest single property coffee contract this year with the Wynn Las Vegas, providing its signature fresh, roast-to-order coffee to room service, banquets and 16 of the hotel’s restaurants on a weekly basis. Fonte is proud to be among the A-list collection of vendors providing service to guests who stay in this 50-story, 2700-room resort boasting a full-service Ferrari-Maserati dealership, fine art from Picasso, Matisse and Van Gogh and some of the world’s best chefs.

“The Wynn Las Vegas is unparalleled in luxury, offering guests the best of the best,” said Paul Odom, president of Fonte Coffee. “We craft our coffees with meticulous attention to every detail in an effort to please even the most discriminating palette. The unique approach we take to ensure each cup of Fonte coffee is a grand experience fits perfectly with the philosophy of the resort — no detail is too small.”

Fonte’s unique roast-to-order program, where coffee is roasted and shipped the same day, ensures top quality and freshness for Wynn Las Vegas’ guests. Not a bean is roasted until it is ordered, which means Fonte coffee beans are not held in inventory at the Seattle roasting plant. Fonte beans are roasted and shipped out same day to clients while adhering to a strict set of guidelines on the entire roasting process to guarantee cup quality and ensure that every guest enjoys their entire coffee experience. Fonte provides this same roast-to-order quality and freshness to its existing customers — both luxury hotels and consumers ordering via www.fontecoffee.com. Fonte’s online retail outlet is increasing in popularity, as consumers log on to purchase premium coffee for their homes. Internet sales have grown exponentially over last year. This year’s second quarter internet orders are six times what they were in 2004.

Fonte custom-designed and provided a full line of espresso machines and drip-coffee brewing systems to service the entire Wynn Las Vegas. Fonte is also providing more than 200 hours in barista-type training to the staff, as well as a technician available 24-hours, seven days a week to service the hotel.

“Today, high-end hospitality is demanding five-star products and service because their customer is becoming more sophisticated. By offering premium coffees and teas, luxury hotels can differentiate themselves and better meet the needs of their clientele. Fonte was created to fill the need for premium specialty coffee in top properties and now, the customers are demanding it,” says Odom
