Vision


The best ideas start with a cup of coffee.

In 2007, Svante and his friends, a group of coffee fanatics, had a humble thought. Us Finns drink the most coffee in the world. Could we also drink the best coffee in the world? We think the answer is yes, and since 2007 we have been working to prove that right.. 
From a question, to a dream, to a mission. A mission to change Finnish coffee culture one cup at a time. The first roaster was a popcorn machine. Some wild experiments were made, some roasteries were burnt. Lessons were learnt.
To be the best, we redefine what is good. We go beyond the brew. We travel the world to establish meaningful partnerships, meet with farmers, and get inspired by their passion and respect for nature. We bring their beans to our roastery in Helsinki, where we roast, package and serve coffee that rocks our world to the core.
The team of Kaffa now consist of an international, enthusiastic and skillful group of people, each with their own specific flavour of passion for coffee, working together towards our vision of a better, more sustainable and more enjoyable cup of coffee in the reach of every Finn.

You can visit us at the Punavuori roastery and coffee bar, which have been operating since 2009!
The best ideas start with a cup of coffee. For us, they also end up in a cup of coffee.
