Coffee Products Associates
Mike and Linda Tompkins started Coffee Products Associates in 1995 to support the import, sales and distribution of coffee beverage equipment. When Newco Enterprises bought Cafe 98 in 1998, Mike worked for Newco until 2008. He has since continued to consult with stakeholders in coffee businesses, providing market research and recommendations by contract. Mike participated in curriculum development and training at the SCAA, and he developed the QCCP program for NAMA. He continues to present coffee supply chain training for NAMA at CTW and to individual food service companies as requested. Mike and Linda have five adult children, and they live in Bloomingdale, Illinois.
