America’s First Instant Cappuccino
In the early 1970’s Al Greene realized that coffee sales
were dramatically increasing in the American market. Part of this
change was due to technology and the ability to produce good coffee
quickly and easily. Coffee houses sprang up and boomed, premium
coffees became popular and coffee was becoming a recreational beverage
consumed around the world. It was clear that coffee and coffee drinks
were here to stay and would become part of a changing lifestyle.
With this expanded growth came new markets, one with an international
flavor. To meet this demand Al Greene formed Brad Barry Company and pioneered development of the first commercially available Instant Cappuccino at the retail level.
Initially, we introduced Caffe D’Vita Cappuccino in the Southern
California market in 1974 where it was an immediate success. Now, after thirty-nine years, with national
distribution from coast-to-coast, Caffe D’Vita continues
to innovate by creating distinctive drinks for all to enjoy.
Caffe D’Vita is recognized in the specialty coffee industry
as having ‘The Premium Blend of Instant Cappuccino’.
Consistently beating the competition in blind taste tests Caffe
D’Vita’s award-winning flavors are the result of premium
ingredients we blend to make every cup a rich, creamy and flavorful
experience. Using the best Arabica coffees, premium creamer system
and other quality ingredients we are still proud to be making Caffe
D’Vita Cappuccino. Over three decades and over one billion
servings of Cappuccino, Caffe D'Vita/Brad Barry has grown into an Internationally
recognized Manufacturer that services Retail, Clubs, Food Service,
and Export customers.
During its history the company has continued to innovate by bringing
additional products to the market, most notably our Premium
Cocoas, Espresso, and Enchanted Chai Tea Lattes. Also, knowing our customers are a valuable resource
we have responded to their needs and have introduced various Caffe
D’Vita products in sugar-free versions using Splenda®. As part of this commitment we have recently developed our 'Natural Line', a unique move forward using only all-natural ingredients.
We also serve our customers, both in Retail and Food Service, by offering 'Blended Iced Coffees', 'Fruit Cream Smoothies' and 'Classic Cream Smoothies' drink mixes. These drinks along with our 'Premium Base Mixes' are easily made by mixing with Water and Ice to create smooth, creamy, and delicious blended drinks.
Caffe D'Vita/Brad Barry Company is continually striving to meet our customers’
expectations by introducing newly developed products, maintaining
our standards of excellence, while providing the most enjoyable
“Premium Beverage Mixes” available today!
Remember, "Drink Premium™" and Enjoy!
