Unveiling the Story of Rosso Coffee Roasters: A Journey of Passion and Excellence

In September 2007, the birth of Rosso Coffee Roasters signaled the fulfillment of a long-held aspiration as Ramsay welcomed its first customers. Guided by the vision of David, the mastermind behind Rosso, the early stages witnessed his personal involvement in all facets of the café's operation.

As time progressed, Rosso embarked on a journey of growth, establishing additional venues in prominent areas like Calgary's bustling downtown core and Victoria Park. This expansion underscored Rosso's increasing prominence within the local coffee community, showcasing its commitment to providing exceptional coffee experiences across various neighborhoods.

Rosso's Coffee Evolution: From Local Roasting to Global Partnerships

A pivotal moment arrived in November 2012 with the introduction of a Probat L12 coffee roaster at the Ramsay location, following immersive experiences and learning journeys in the United States. Rosso embarked on international travels to countries like Guatemala, Costa Rica, and Colombia to source green coffee directly from producers, solidifying partnerships and understanding the intricacies of coffee production.

A Journey of Excellence and Innovation

In 2016, Rosso Coffee Roasters expanded rapidly, opening three new locations, including a flagship venue in Inglewood, Calgary. This growth was accompanied by notable awards, including the ATB Small Business of the Year and recognition in Avenue Magazine's Top 40 Under 40 list.

Rosso's commitment to excellence was further demonstrated through victories in prestigious barista competitions, showcasing their dedication to craftsmanship and innovation.

Today, operating as Rosso Coffee Roasters, their vision is clear: a focus on quality, service, and a deeper understanding of coffee production. Led by the partnership of Jessie and Cole, Rosso strives to tell the stories of their coffees, producers, and partners, fostering a narrative of growth and passion in every cup.
