Proclamation congratulating Nicholas Coffee & Tea Company on its 100th anniversary.



     WHEREAS, Nicholas Coffee & Tea Company will mark its 100th anniversary as a City of Pittsburgh business; and

     WHEREAS, the fourth-generation family owned business, Nicholas Coffee is known for helping peak Pittsburgh’s passion for coffee; and

     WHEREAS, in 1919, Nicholas Constantine Nicholas founded the coffee company that bears his name and opened a storefront in Market Square; and

     WHEREAS, at first, its roasted Arabica coffee was available only to walk-in customers, but eventually, Nicholas Coffee was available in Pittsburgh-area grocery stores. Today, it can be ordered online and delivered to destinations across the globe; and

     WHEREAS, surviving the Pittsburgh flood of 1936 and a fire in 2017, Nicholas Coffee has continued to improve their roasting process and provide their customers with the best tasting coffee in Pittsburgh. With dozens of blends of coffees and more than 100 varieties of tea, Nicholas Coffee & Tea Company has something for everyone; and

     WHEREAS, when it comes to coffee, the Nicholas family is unmatched. Six times a year they have 44,000 pounds of coffee beans imported from Papua New Guinea, Honduras, India’s Malabar region, Jamaica’s Blue Mountain, and Hawaii’s Kona District;

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that we, Allegheny County Council Members Denise Ranalli-Russell, Bob Macey and All Members of Council do hereby congratulate Nicholas Coffee & Tea Company on its 100th anniversary and we recognize its impact on the community as it serves as a steadfast and dedicated business in the City of Pittsburgh and across Allegheny County.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto caused the Seal of the County of Allegheny to be affixed this 20th day of October 2019.
