The Roasti Coffee Company began with a trip to South America.
It happened in 2008 when the company's founder, Gerry Hayes, traveled to Brazil and fell in love with the place and its coffee. This motivated him to strike up a partnership with a speciality coffee producer from the country's Minas Gerais region.
Thanks to this connection, the coffee comes directly to Edmonton from the producer.
The coffee is roasted in small batches each week by head roaster and owner, Andrew Hayes.
