New Mexico Coffee Company, based in Albuquerque, NM, has acquired Rio Grande Roasters. With the merger, New Mexico Coffee Co. will add new staff and equipment, as well as the lines and services of Rio Grande Roasters.

"This acquisition will help New Mexico Coffee Co. meet its aggressive growth plans," stated Randy Whitehead, president of the company. "It fits in with our goals of expanding our product lines and quadrupling sales over the next two years."

The Rio Grande product lines will continue to be marketed under the new agreement, providing current New Mexico Coffee customers a broader range of products, including a wider range of packages. Commercial accounts will also be expanded, as will roasting capacity with the addition of both a drum and an air roaster.
