"About Us" page such as this one...they tend to glance over it quickly. We
invite you,however, to read this entire page carefully, for 2 reasons.
Reason #1 ? We
have a history that we would like to briefly share with you.The Nicholas family
has put nearly 100 years of devoted sweat and sacrifice in
to what is now known as perhaps the WORLD'S Greatest
Coffee. We are so VERY proud of our heritage and
success, and we'd like to share a small portion of the journey with
Reason # 2 ? We
are THOROUGHLY convinced that if you DO read this page, and you are one who
has not yet had the privilege of indulging in our perfectly roasted coffee's,
you will be compelled to do so, and will NEVER BUY COFFEE ANYWHERE
ELSE...EVER AGAIN !
Do you think we're just a
Well..."confidence" is just one
of attributes that can be associated with the Nicholas family "way of
doing things" !
Our story is one of those TRADITION
RICH stories that begins with proud men and women from other countries who
had DREAMS of coming to America and providing for their families and
PROSPERING ! Our story in America began in 1919 when Grandpap
Nicholas opened the first Nicholas Coffee location in the spot where the PPG
Plaza now sits. My father eventually took over the operation, and with
incredible pride and determination, he weathered storms such as the Great
Depression, and a catastrophic fire in 1950's.The company was thriving when
the fire hit and then all of the sudden Nicholas Coffee was faced with
adversity. However,not wanting to miss a beat, he bought the building where
we currently reside, in the heart of Market Square, and the roasting and
the growth continued ! My father was a DRIVEN and brilliant
businessman. He built a GREAT company. Eventually I took the reigns, and
along with my son, we shoulder the responsibility of carrying on the tradition
of EXCELLENCE which was the nucleus on which this company was
And this is something I
DON'T take lightly.
My name and
that of my father and grandfather are attached to this business. For nearly 100
years, the Nicholas family has strived to bring you the absolute BEST
Roasted Coffee Perfection ! And...... we have. I can assure you that the
next 100 years will be NO DIFFERENT ! It's a promise I made, and a promise I
will KEEP ! The growth and success of this company over recent years has
been gratifying and rewarding,and the BIGGEST reward of all...is

What makes Nicholas Coffee
so SUPERIOR ?
It's our specialized,
unique roasting method, combined with the fact that our beans arrive STRAIGHT
FROM THE WORLD'S RICHEST COFFEE FIELDS ! There is NO MIDDLE MAN ! No
one.....NOBODY touches...roasts...cures...flavors or does ANYTHING to the
coffee...prior to it arriving here in Pittsburgh. The beans are still GREEN when
they get here. You probably thought coffee beans were always brown, didn't you.
Well...most places you see them...they are. That's because they've been tampered
with already. But NOT HERE ! We get them as
PURE as they can be...THEN.....they get NICHOLIZED !
The process we use is a Thermalo process...which
ROASTS the beans...it doesn't BAKE them. There
is a HUGE difference ! And...that difference is immediately noticed once you
smell the aroma and TASTE the RICHNESS of our PERFECTLY ROASTED
Folks....the Nicholas family politely
challenges you to find a better tasting roasted coffee.Go out and try other
