COFFEE THAT CONNECTS YOU TO THE GROWERS
Great coffee always starts at origin. Kahvi Charlotta believe the hard work and dedication of every producer we work with must be acknowledged, their stories told and premium prices paid for specialty-grade coffees.
We strive to buy according to global harvests, allowing us to get the freshest possible green coffees from around the world, delivered to our roastery in Rekola, where unique roasting profiles, tailored to capture the best possible flavours within each bean, ensure a uniform, quality result and the freshest coffee for you.
FROM WHERE IT STARTED
Kahvi Charlotta originated many years ago with the dream of starting own coffee shop. The vision was to have a living room where you can come before, during or after the workday to hang out with friends, read the newspaper of the day, listen to good music, and talk to the baristas.
Kahvi Charlotta was founded by Victoria Nuottanen, who has been in the coffee industry for over 15 years.
