Dropshipping: Using the program is simple. You offer our products and your customers pay you directly for the merchandise at retail pricing (that you set). You collect shipping information and collect payment from your own customer base, place the order with us, enter your customer's shipping address and we ship the order to your customer. This is a very easy way to sell products on your own site or places like eBay® or Amazon® where you get paid by PayPal, Stripe or Amazon Payments, etc. and then pay us at wholesale pricing. This lets you profit from every order you receive without inventory, order fulfillment, warehousing, logistics, etc.
No inventory or bulk purchase required, but there are a few things we'll need before you can apply... Note: You may also be interested in our Coffee Affiliate Program instead
FEIN (Federal Employer Identification Number from the IRS)
To do business with our corporation through dropshipping you need to have a Federal tax ID (not a Social Security Number, an IRS assigned tax ID commonly called an EIN or FEIN). We also need the company name, street address and email address.

Private Label Coffee / Co-Packer
Old Chicago Coffee also offers Private Label Coffee where you use our select coffees to fulfill shipments to customers with your own brand name. We are an inspected facility and fully licensed. You simply upload a logo for black & white labels OR supply your own coffee bags (and shipment packaging if desired, but optional) OR send us product labels to apply to our blank coffee bags which are black with a valve. Bags are air tight sealed and easily open. You order the same way dropshippers do and supply us a list showing which coffees are which (example: Our Costa Rica Tarrazu Dark Roast would be a certain coffee type you offer under a different name, so you email or mail us a sheet showing what to ship when you order that particular coffee (if different from ours). We then process the order and that coffee is placed in your own coffee bag or one of our blank bags with your label on it. Return address on shipping labels is a generic distribution name, not our company name.
How do I start with Private Label?
When you private label with us we do not charge extra and your only additional expense is generally labels which most order from places like VistaPrint and enter our shipping address at checkout so they come straight to us. We let you know when they arrive and your ready to sell your brand. We give you all the information about label sizes and a few things that must legally be on the label, the rest of your design is up to you. This information is available AFTER you are registered with us as a dropshipper.
What are the wholesale prices?
We have several coffees that we use for private label. You are able to select bag size and coffee origin, plus roast type, when placing a private label order. Some coffees we may have year round and others may change every 2 or 3 months subject to availability and harvest size from different farms, but there are always multiple options. Pricing is not disclosed publicly, you can only view pricing if you are a dropshipper with us. There are no surprises inside our mobile friendly dropship cart (which you get access to when registered). Our prices are extremely competitive and we do not charge a dropship fee or any other fee after registration.
What size coffee bags can I have shipped to my customers?
We have many options here: 8 Oz, 10 Oz, 11 Oz, 12 Oz, 1 LB, 2 LB, 5 LB
What about single serve coffee capsules?
Our capsules are compatible with any brewer that uses K-Cup® style capsules, including the 2.0 versions (newer machines). You can either have a private label box with no name brand printing on lid or you can supply us with printed lids to use on your orders for branded capsules. We do not make lids here, just great coffee, so if you want printed lids just supply them (51.2mm) and we'll put your lids in our machines so you have your own branded single serve capsules. We use a select premium roast for single serve, coffee type not selectable on these but is selectable on coffee bags.
Does the Old Chicago Coffee Co. roast coffee or order it already roasted for my shipments?
We do all roasting here and all processing is done here as well. We have grind options from coarse to fine plus Espresso and Turkish so your customers can get coffee ground the way they want it for auto-drip, coffee urns, percolators, refillable coffee pods, french press and more. Our equipment also fills and seals single serve cups so coffee goes from roaster to capsule, always super fresh.
