CHICAGO, IL, USA and VANCOUVER, BC, Canada – The Planting Hope Company Inc., a plant-based food and beverage company focused on producing the world’s most nutritious and planet-friendly products, is pleased to announce that Hope and Sesame Barista Blend has secured two new distribution partners, with access to an additional 250+ independent cafés in the Mid-Atlantic region and 300+ cafés in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Additionally, Hope and Sesame® Barista Blend is now available for direct delivery through BaristaUnderground.com, which provides wholesale pricing and two-day free shipping to more than 10,000 independent cafés across the contiguous 48 states.

“We are very happy to announce that our Hope and Sesame® Barista Blend is now readily available via wholesale distribution to independent cafés everywhere in the continental U.S.,” said Julia Stamberger, CEO and Co-founder of Planting Hope. “Additionally, with the addition of distribution partners in the Mid-Atlantic region and San Francisco Bay Area, we are reaching markets with high concentrations of colleges and universities and corporate campuses, where residents tend to have strong preferences for sustainable non-dairy alternative milks like Hope and Sesame® Sesamemilk.”

Hope and Sesame® Barista Blend® has been added to the following distributors, collectively providing distribution access to most of the independent coffee shops in the U.S.:

  • BaristaUnderground.com, a national distributor of products for espresso bars and café foodservice operators in the U.S. owned by Odeko, with a heavily curated assortment targeted at the specific needs of independent cafés, has added Hope and Sesame® Barista Blend to its wholesale customer catalog as a Recommended Item. Cafés receive free two-day shipping across the continental U.S. on minimum orders of $125.
  • Humankind, a distributor of products for espresso bars and café foodservice operators servicing the Mid-Atlantic region, is now stocking Hope and Sesame® Barista Blend and making it available to coffee shops in and around Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C.
  • Odeko, already a leading distribution partner for Hope and Sesame® Barista Blend to the café channel in the eastern U.S., is now stocking Hope and Sesame® Barista Blend in its warehouses servicing independent café customers in the San Francisco Bay Area and surrounding regions.

Sesamemilk Continues to Appear on the Menus of Leading Independent Cafés!
These independent coffee shops announced they have added Hope and Sesame® Barista Blend Sesamemilk to their menus, with Tiny Arms Coffee announcing it is entirely replacing almond milk with the sesamemilk on its menu:

  • Tiny Arms Coffee (Lowell, MA)
  • Boxwood Coffee Roasters (Westfield, NJ)
  • Uncommon Coffee (Essex Junction, VT)

“Hope and Sesame Barista Blend is perfect for my café; it has a beautiful rich texture in hot or iced beverages,” said Maya Crowley, owner of Uncommon Coffee. “It has the perfect amount of sweetness that mimics the caramelization of sugars in dairy milk when steamed. It’s free of the most common allergens, and it’s delicious!”
