Next time you are in the Fargo/Moorhead area make sure to stop by Fargo Coffee Company.
Finally a cafe that serves high quality drinks and food in a very comfortable and classy atmosphere. From the dark wood counters and furnishings to the plasma televisions, this cafe is truly stunning.
They serve Fair Trade Organic coffee and espresso drinks that will be sure to impress you. I can personally say that it is one of the few times I’ve ordered a dry cappuccino and received an espresso drink that was nothing short of perfect.
Fargo Coffee Co. is still very new to the scene in Fargo/Moorhead, but is already getting a ton of attention and positive feedback.
Just check out their guest comments: http://fargocoffeeco.com/guestcomments.htm
Please enjoy some pictures of the cafe. (just click on picture to enlarge and view)

Alternative titles for this entry could be Coffee fan realizes dream! or Sales rep now selling something he loves! For the past 9 years I have been a part of growing a small frozen pizza company from a small local player (Appleton, WI) to a strong regional player (WI, IL the UP). This was challenging and satisfying work but I was ready for a change.
I have for a longtime been a fan of the espresso/coffee house industry. My first Cappuccino experience was at the Ovens of Brittany restaurants in Madison, WI. in the early 80s. The people in my life know of my love of coffee and many have told me that I should be working in the industry, and now happily I am. This came about because I learned of UMG at Backroads Coffee in Hayward, WI. (By the way, very nice people, who took time when busy, to answer this customers coffee questions). I am so pleased to be a part of the team at UMG where my responsibilities will be to grow our business in IL and eastern IA. The blend of products, expertise and committed people at this company will be a joy to share with new customers.

Well, it’s tax season and time to turn the 2007 displays. We have batch freezers, blast freezers, pastry displays and gelato displays that we are offering at unbeatable prices. One batch freezer is our demo machine and everything else is brand new and haven’t even had power cords put on them yet. This will be the lowest price offers we’ve ever done on showroom displays so if you’re interested, please give me a call and I’ll quote you a price. I can’t list the prices here but if you wanted to get into gelato or upgrade your current equipment, this is all on a first come first serve basis, once the showroom pieces are gone, everything is back at new to order pricing. You will never ever get new equipment at this price again so don’t wait too long. Cheers, David Showroom Equipment:Gel Tec BF30 x 2 (all sold) Gel Tec BF50 x2 (Both sold), used Gel Tec BF70, Bravo Trittico 18 . Stoelting VB25 – SOLD, SLM 6 x 3 (ALL SOLD), Ephesus II 12 pan demo , AII 12 pan (SOLD), AII 12 pan(SOLD), AII PastrySOLD), AII Pastry (SOLD) , Jof One, Jof 23
1 SLM 8 pan unit is also available with broken glass side panel. If you want to repair the glass you can get an amazing deal on this new display. (remember, be reasonable, you’ll save thousands of dollars on these pieces but we’re not selling them below cost a starter gelato setup will still run between 15 – 25k depending on what you pick)
