April 22, 2016 - ROST is started!
April 18, 2018 - Antti Starts Roasting
July 2, 2018 - New Probat Roaster
The roastery is starting to have our hands full with orders, so to help us out we bought another Probat P12 to keep up with deman.
Now, our small roastery space is filled with two roasting machines, lots of new and exciting coffee, and plenty of passion for creating a name for ourselves in the Helsinki coffee scene.
November 29, 2019 - Zero Waste Concept
Our Zero-waste concept and reusable barrels were put to use because we wanted to reduce the amount of packaging waste and minimize our carbon footprints as much as possible. The conept is mainly used by our HoReCa customers, and saves 30kg of packaging waster per year per barrel.
December 20, 2019 - Satokausi Series Introduced
Introducing, our Satokausi series! Satokausi means 'harvest season' in Finnish, and that perfectly describes how we choose these coffees. To add to our selection of Fair Trade and organic coffees, we wanted to offer our customers a selection of smaller, more exotic micro-lot coffees. All of our satokausi coffees are sinle-origin seasonal coffees that we purchase either directly from the farms or through a smaller coffee supplier.
April 8, 2020 - New Loring Roaster
Goodbye Probat P12 and hello Loring S35 Kestrel! We're continuing to improve our roastery and roasting process, now with a newer, bigger coffee roaster. The Loring Kestrel is also more ecological, with it's gas and COs emissions being almost 40% lower than your typical coffee roaster. The roasting process is also a bit softer, which can be seen in the flavors of our coffees as well as the decreased amount of roasting waste.
April 12, 2020 - Roastery Store Opened
Amidst the craziness of the world, we decided to open a small store in the same location as our roatery. Part of the reason for our opening was to offer our Lauttasaari neighbors the chance to get better coffee closer, but it was also important to us to offer our customers a chance to see the roastery and learn a bit more about where their coffee comes from and the whole roasting process.
