About Prima Coffee Equipment
Cultivating the enjoyment of life by providing easy access to products, resources, and services.
—Our Mission Statement
Founded in 2009 and born from a long line of family-owned, locally-operated businesses in Louisville, KY, Prima Coffee started with the idea that everyone should have easy access to the products and resources that help make coffee great. That goal remains unchanged to this day and drives everything we do, from curating a catalog of the finest gear from across the globe, to developing content that empowers you to find the right equipment and make better coffee. You can see our Heartland roots in everything we do but most importantly in the way that we take care of people, still offering friendly and knowledgeable customer service provided by real people right here in our Louisville office.
