RADIO TONI with Toni Lontis
Tyler Ornstein loved the taste and smell of coffee since his first sip at 5 years old, however, his father thought otherwise, as it upset his stomach. One day Tyler asked if he could make a coffee that both of them could drink, and this was a pivotal moment in both of their lives.
His Father started thinking.
In 2006, at sixteen years old, Tyler’s father asked him a simple question, “What is the second-largest commodity item in the world?” He had no idea, but after a little research he found that the first was oil, and the second was coffee.
Tylers Coffees® was born out of necessity. Tyler's dad was told by his physician that he could no longer drink coffee due to its acidity. Realizing that drinking coffee is more of a lifestyle choice than just a beverage. His father (a biochemist) went on to design a proprietary computerized Z-Roasting system and figured out how to roast the bean perfectly without letting the Tannic and Lipid acids form. These acids often wreak havoc on those with GI problems from indigestion, bloating, and heartburn to tooth enamel decay.
He then presented Tyler with an idea that is now known as Tylers Coffees®. THE WORLD'S FIRST AND ONLY ACID-FREE COFFEE.
Tyler agreed to sell it with a natural entrepreneur spirit, setting off door-to-door on his bicycle. Tyler continued selling the coffee to friends, family, and neighbors, and from there Tyler’s Coffees® was born.
It has since evolved into a full warehouse, a team, 80% growth year over year with 2,000,000 cups sold, distribution in 1,000 independent grocery stores across the United States, and was even the preferred coffee of the 2008 Academy Awards. Also, he has launched into Amazon and Walmart online. As well as many other retail outlets. He is well versed in online company building, and marking development.
As the world's FIRST and ONLY Organic Acid-Free Coffee, Tylers Coffees® is able to provide a healthier option. While his company continues to expand and see more and more success, Tylers Coffees® is most importantly helping people around the world, giving them a healthier option each and every day.
"Entrepreneurialism is like jumping off the highest cliff and assembling an airplane on the way down" This inspires me because owning a business is crazy.

Toni’s notes – THE solution for the more than 100 million individuals who have sensitive stomachs or who suffer from acid-related modalities. Tannic and Lipid acids are the cause of the bitter bite, upset stomach, aftertaste, and tooth enamel damage. Aside from these pesky side effects, these acids can form and aid in the development, or flare-up of Interstitial Cystitis (IC), Overactive Bladder (OAB), Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), Crohn’s Disease, or Colitis. Since our roasting and decaffeinating process is completely all-natural, we are able to produce a product that is not only superior in quality but one that also yields the healthiest coffee for you. Additionally our roasting process is computerized and carefully monitored, so we are able to ensure that each batch is consistent and that the results will be the same; EVERY TIME. This means that our customers are able to expect the highest quality from us - and consistency - whether they are buying their first bag or their 50th. Tyler has seen a massive amount of growth since 2006. This year alone he has been featured in Forbes magazine twice, is starting his own podcast launching in July, and is even working on a book that is being released soon.
