George Webb Restaurants has partnered with Sheboygan-based
Torke Coffee Roasting Company to create a special blend of
coffee that will be served in the restaurants and packaged for
sale for customers.
We are committed to sourcing as much as we possibly can
locally. Using fresh Wisconsin ingredients is part of our
culture and business philosophy. So when it came to choosing a
company to roast our new coffee blend we wanted a Wisconsin
partner, said chef Maikel Correa in a statement.
Torke is a family owned business that started in 1941, which is
seven years before George Webb and his wife opened their first
restaurant on the corner of Ogden and Van Buren streets in
Milwaukee, according to the announcement.
The result of the work between Correa and Torke Coffee Roasting
Company is a proprietary blend.
Its our own twist on a breakfast roast of 100 percent Arabica
beans, and comes in regular and decaf, said Ryan Stamm, general
manager and vice president of George Webb Restaurants.
