Community Coffee Blends in Headless Architecture
Community Coffee has been selecting, roasting, and perfecting great-tasting coffee blends since 1919. Family owned and family operated, for the past 100 years the company has maintained their core values of serving with consistency, integrity, and excellence.
By 2015, Community Coffee’s B2C ecommerce store was outdated and no longer supported. The heritage coffee company needed a platform that could easily integrate into its existing infrastructure. To do so, Community Coffee performed an extensive platform evaluation and found that platforms were either very large and expensive, or more affordable but not capable of meeting their requirements.
With a .NET framework to fit its current tech stack and headless architecture to integrate into its legacy CMS and ERP, Znode matched what Community Coffee was looking for in an ecommerce platform.
Community Coffee launched its new ecommerce store in 2016 on Znode. The platform’s headless architecture with over 600 REST APIs provided Community Coffee the flexibility to integrate Znode into the current Sitefinity CMS, and allowed for seamless integration into Community Coffee’s SAP environment and order fulfillment systems without sacrificing the look and feel of the company’s original ecommerce store.
“After three months of research, demos, and R&D, we chose Znode because it was the best option for us. We were looking for an ecommerce platform with a headless engine, quality APIs, solid database design, and customizability. That’s what put Znode over the top for us.”
