Classic Gourmet Coffee
Classic Gourmet isn't a cafe, rather it's one of the GTA's top coffee roasters. John Rufino's engineering background inspired him to create the most nearly perfect roasting process imaginable - an all-stainless steel plant in Concord that recycles the heat from its roasters to increase energy efficiency. Since coffee's footprint is hardly small - as long as we can't grow it here, transportation will always be a factor - Classic tries to make what goes on here as low-emission as possible, while maximizing pure flavour. It's worked, and customers include Bulldog Coffee, Cava, Woodlot, George and the Gladstone.
