Customer Testimonials

Building relationships is at the heart of what we do. We can tell you that we really care all day long, but sometimes, it's better to just hear it directly from our customers.

Juliet (Somerville, MA)

There were a lot of hard questions and tough decisions when it came to opening our first restaurant, but choosing to work with Speedwell was not one of them. Their products are thoughtfully sourced, roasted, and delivered and the quality of the coffee they provide is exceptional, but on top of that their commitment to the success of their customers is what most distinguishes them from other vendors. As a small business owner, that support and peace of mind that you are not going it alone is invaluable, and Speedwell consistently delivers exceptional customer service and support. Our guests love the coffee, and we love working with the team at Speedwell.

Better Bean (Bridgewater, MA)

We love Speedwell! We consider Speedwell to be an integral part of our team and attribute a large part of our business success to our ongoing relationship. Their customer service is top notch, maintenance team is unmatched, and coffee is wonderful! They have been there for us every step of the way and we see them as a a key partner into the foreseeable future.

Serendepity Cafe (Maynard, MA)

Working with Speedwell Coffee is hands down the best decision we made for our coffee program. Out of all the vendors we work with, Derek and the Speedwell team make our relationship the most effortless with genuine, attentive and communicative service, each and every interaction. Additionally, and perhaps most important, their coffee, espresso and Rishi tea offerings are nothing short of phenomenal and our customers feel the same way. I highly recommend Speedwell for anyone seeking professional service and high quality products.

Pain D'Avignon (Hyannis, MA)

As is true with most start-ups, when Pain D'Avignon first opened, we began with our Artisan breads, pastries, croissants and just coffee. Speedwell, was our first vendor. Since coffee is almost sacred to us and indicative of a great European cafe, it meant everything to us that Derek got it, and that coffee meant everything to him too. Ten years later, PDA Cafe has grown and so has Speedwell, and yet, they have continued to provide high quality, product and service, with their local roaster persona. Derek and Speedwell have been a partner in our growth and success.

Clover Food Lab (Boston, MA)

We first met Derek in the South End back in 2011 when we were both new businesses. We were running a food truck, and Derek was making coffee from an espresso cart. Derek had us down to Plymouth and showed us his roasting facility. Speedwell joined us as part of our single origin coffee program. As Clover has grown, our relationship with Speedwell has flourished. My staff and I always look forward to the Speedwell shipment (especially when it's that Limu coffee from Ethiopia.) When customers find out Derek sent us a new coffee, they flock to our restaurants. But Speedwell doesn't just have great coffee, they have great people, too. Derek and Sarah are always up for a trip to Clover to meet our staff, to host us for a field trip, or to weigh in on the calibration of a grinder or brewer. We love Speedwell!
