Rosso Coffee Roaster’s priority is to deliver a world-class journey through specialty coffee. Founded in 2007 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, we have grown from a single cafe into a world-recognized coffee roaster. We maintain a constant focus on improving not just our effects on the environment, but to also improve the communities we work with, and the quality of life for the people we serve. We’ve instilled best practices that go against the traditional norms of the coffee industry, to ensure we leave things better than we found them. We’re a growing company, and as we grow we want to ensure that our processes are sustainable, our values remain in place, and that we remain connected to not just our local community but all communities that we touch and affect. Acquiring B-Corp Certification was a very important project to us. We were thrilled to receive this accreditation as it supports the practices that we began implementing many years ago, and has also driven us to find more areas that we can improve.
