“The smell of freshly brewed coffee evokes so many memories for me, mostly of time spent with friends and family, the people I love. I wanted to develop these coffee blends in that spirit, and create a place where people could come together and take a break from their busy days.”

How It All Began

Ralph Lauren’s first-ever coffee shop opened in 2014 in New York City. Overlooking Fifth Avenue in a historic building on the corner of 55th Street, Ralph’s Coffee evoked a sense of the timeless American spirit of the Ralph Lauren brand with a fresh, bright, authentic atmosphere. With its charming vintage feel, Ralph’s Coffee provided a welcoming and comforting space for busy New Yorkers and visitors to enjoy a cup of coffee. Guests could also enjoy freshly made desserts baked by The Polo Bar, which opened in the same year in the lower level of the building.
Since 2014 Ralph Lauren has opened coffee shops and Ralph’s Coffee trucks around the world that continue to bring people together and evoke the true meaning of hospitality. Building upon the success of the 55th Street Ralph’s Coffee, Ralph Lauren has shared the Ralph’s Coffee experience with people across the world in the form of cafés, coffee trucks, kiosks, and trikes.

The Ralph’s Coffee Blends

Ralph’s special blends, including Ralph’s Roast, Decaf, and Espresso, feature organically grown beans from Central America, South America, and Africa, and are roasted and packaged in Philadelphia by La Colombe. Only the all-natural Swiss Water Process is used to decaffeinate.
La Colombe is a leading coffee roaster known for ethical, long-term trade practices with growers. Considered one of the pioneers of the third wave of coffee, it provides signature classic blends and exceptional single-origin coffees to cafés, hotels, restaurants, and retailers around the world. In addition, the company owns and operates 32 cafés in Philadelphia, New York, Chicago, Boston, Los Angeles, Austin, and Washington, D.C.—with additional locations and new markets scheduled to open in 2022–2023. The company has also made headlines in the ready-to-drink business with its DRAFT LATTE—the world’s first-ever textured cold latte.
