What brands of frappe powders do you carry?

Although all brands are high quality, there are some key differences.

How do I go about choosing the right frappe for my menu?

There are two main methods of preperation for frappes. Many mixes will already contain coffee and they just need to be blended with milk and ice. Alternatviely you can use a base mix and add your own espresso or cold brew, decaf or regular. Choosing a mix containing coffee can streamline the process or if you're looking to create you own custom frappe, you might want to consider adding your own coffee. 

Do I have to add my own coffee or espresso? 

No.  We offer a handful of frappe powders with real coffee already added. 

Do any of your brands offer an organic option?

The Cafe Essentials line is fully organic. We offer two flavor options, Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Creme and Chocolate Frappe. If you are looking for a gluten free powder, try Big Train. DaVinci and Big Train also offer sugar free flavors.

What are the most popular flavors?

The most popular flavors are DaVinci Vanilla Freeze, Ghirardelli Classic White Frappe, and Big Train Mocha.
