Building on the Legacy of Royal Cup's Rich Heritage

Growing strong for more than a century, Royal Cup Coffee and Tea has developed from its small, hometown roots to become a major importer, roaster and distributor of the world’s finest specialty and premium coffees and teas. Royal Cup’s reach extends throughout the US, Mexico and the Caribbean, serving customers in the food service, hospitality, office and specialty coffee markets. Sharing a similar starting point, HPM is proud to keep this tradition strong building on our client’s long-standing reputation as a quality roaster and distributor coupled with the latest innovations and expansions. Time is the ultimate test for any company, and since 1896, Royal Cup has been perfecting its craft. We are proud to serve alongside Royal Cup, which continues as a privately held, family company -- offering dedicated service with a unique personal touch to each and every customer. At HPM, sometimes our best lessons learned are served up from our very own clients.
