Here at Windward, our primary customers are people just like you - consumers who enjoy drinking fine coffee at home, at work or wherever your travels take you. In addition to the hundreds of households and business offices across the U.S. who choose our beans, we have also garnered the attention of a number of fine dining establishments, chefs and even winemakers who now feature our coffees. We're happy to share some of them with you here.

 Chez Francois and Touché Wine Bar

On the river in Vermilion, OH, this romantic, upscale waterfront restaurant and its upstairs wine and martini bar is consistently ranked by the Zagat Survey as the premiere French restaurant in the state and a top dining destination nationwide. We are exceptionally pleased to have been chosen for the past 4 years by owners Matthew Mars and Chef John M. D'Amico to be the exclusive supplier of beans for Chez Francois' French Press selections.

Filia Cellars

A wonderful new winery in Wadsworth, OH, Filia opened in Spring 2015 and became an immediate hit. Owned by Lisa and Mitch Locklear, they've set up shop in a lovely, restored Victorian home in the country. Lisa grew up in Napa, the daughter of leading winemaker Gregory Graham (linked below), and is now an accomplished winemaker in her own right with a growing selection of excellent wines. Visit them, enjoy the wine and good times, and of course we hope you enjoy a French Pressed Windward coffee before the drive home.
