Lola Savannah Coffee Company
Explore New Ground
When Lola Savannah started in 1995, we had a simple vision: Roast high-quality coffee beans, and have fun doing it, so that our customers could enjoy high-quality coffee, and have fun drinking it. That is still our goal. And yes, we’re still having a lot of fun.
We work hard to ensure that you experience a consistently excellent cup of coffee, whether in the office impressing clients, as an after-dinner treat with dessert, or slowly waking up on a lazy weekend morning. We think that each sip should be an indulgent pleasure. For those who want (or need!) the caffeine, our coffees are roasted just right to wake up your mind; and for those who want a decaf, we’ve got you covered, too.
You don’t need to leave the comfort of your home or the busy-ness of your office to experience enticing aromas and complex flavors and richness in your coffee. At Lola Savanna we take pride and pleasure in roasting quality beans daily in our Texas facility so we can make sure that you get the freshest cup of coffee possible.

As a full-service coffee roaster, Lola Savannah often has some excess roasting and production capacity. We private-label (also known as toll-roasting or contract-roasting) for several clients. In other words, we use our experience and know-how to source, roast, produce, and package coffee for a number of retailers and end-users like restaurants and coffee shops. Our clients tell us what they're looking for, and we package coffee in their bags.
We have deep and long-lasting relationships with a number of fantastic coffee brokers, and that means that we have access to the best green (that is, raw or unroasted) beans. Our location in Houston, one of the country's premier coffee-importing ports and warehousing locations, means lower transportation prices—and savings we can pass on to you.
When we private-label, we work backwards with our clients. First, we explore what they want to sell to their own customers. From there we can help a client decide which beans have the right qualities (for example, the acidity, the flavor profiles, etc.) to get to the desired taste that is the goal.
For private-label clients, we're happy to help our customers source their own green coffee beans (which they're welcome to store in our warehouse at no additional expense), or we can offer you the benefit of our many years of experience to pick from what we have on-hand.
We can help you pick the right roast for a particular coffee bean, and we can advise you on favorite flavored coffees—or help you create a new taste sensation by combining flavorings we keep on-hand. Who would have thought that Peanut Butter Banana would be so good!
We can give you insight into what we're seeing as to market trends. Are your customers likely to prefer whole-bean or pre-ground coffee? Regular or decaf or some combination, and in what proportions? Flavored or non-flavored?
If you already have your own logo, you're a step ahead. But if you don't, we're pleased to introduce you to our very talented in-house graphics person. We can help you get your logo onto packaging materials, like labels, bags, and boxes: we've got years-long relationships with first-rate suppliers of those materials. High quality products need to go in high quality packaging so that your business makes you proud.
And most important, our SQF certification means that you can be confident that what we produce—and what you sell—meets rigorous food safety and quality requirements.
We encourage you to contact us to see what great things we can do together!
At Lola Savannah, our goal is to make safe, quality food products that you’ll be proud to serve to your family and friends.
Our food safety team works continuously under the SQF Food Safety and Quality, Edition 8.0 guidelines to ensure that we provide high quality, good tasting, safe coffee to our customers. We undergo an annual audit by an independent third-party, and we have daily, weekly, and monthly processes in place to keep our facility in top condition. Our management team undergoes regular training to stay ahead of the food safety curve and applicable Federal, state, and local requirements, and our production staff has frequent refresher training sessions so that food safety is always top-of-mind.
The Go Texan campaign is run by the Texas Department of Agriculture to promote Texas-grown and Texas-manufactured products. Well, coffee doesn’t grow in Texas, but we do roast, flavor, and package it here.
Lola Savannah was born in Houston, a city we dearly love, and we’re darn proud of that! Most recently we’ve moved to a beautiful facility in the Heights area of town
