Founders Page

Kaffe Magnum Opusis literally translated, a great work of art in coffee.   The modern cafe’ has roots in the coffee houses where people gathered to socialize, network, and occasionally do business.  I started Kaffe Magnum Opus to support and maintain this tradition and to provide unconditionally guaranteed coffee.

Our Roasting facility is located in the Pinelands.  This area of the East Coast was a summering grounds for Native Americans and became an important part of the American tradition of freedom and independence.  Today the Pinelands is one million acres of preserved forest, mostly pine and oak.   The pinelands consists of  spring-fed, crystal clear streams and rivers, trees that whisper like chimes,  quiet that encourages peace and contemplation, and a unique music that rivals the country and bluegrass of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Kaffe Magnum Opus  is committed to excellence.  Our coffee has been highly rated and recognized for distinction by Coffee Review.  Our committment applies to the craft of coffee roasting and equally important to the new craft of Service to Coffee Retailers, a craft in which KMO is leading the way.  Everything we do is considered in terms of its effect on service and our absolute dedication to providing the best, highest quality and the freshest coffee in the industry.

I am proud of the company we have become and I am proud of the leadership Robert Kraeuter, our president, is supplying.  He is adding new products and new promotional material and new vigor to KMO’s approach to service.

Cathy and I are traveling the country visiting cafe’s and coffee houses.  Some of you know that I rode my recumbent bicycle from Catskill,  located on the Hudson River in Upstate New York, to Key West Florida in support of independent coffee houses.  I did so to stay up to date and to share what I saw and learned with you to assist your drive for success.   There is a web site that documents some of these activities: Ride For Independent Cafe’s and Coffee House’s. 

By all means try us out and see if what I pledge is what we deliver.  If you don’t find it so, give me a call at 609-247-9683, e-mail me at or comment here.  If you find Kaffe Magnum Opus to be above and beyond your expectations please spread the word.
