Omar Coffee provide High Hopes with all the coffee our 2,500 visitors could need. Buy an Omar Coffee at the market and as you enjoy the rich taste that comes from slow-roasting premium green coffee beans, know that you are also supporting all of those that benefit from High Hopes’ Programs.
OMAR COFFEE COMPANY’s history is as rich as their brews. Established in 1937 by John Costas, Omar Coffee has been a fixture in the Franklin Avenue community SINCE 1939. John started out with a simple vision – and a single blend of coffee! Their product line has since multiplied and diversified, but their timeless philosophy has remained the same: “Buy PREMIUM green coffee beans, SLOW ROAST them to perfection, and always deliver superior FRESHNESS and personalized SERVICE to all Omar Coffee customers.”
