Our coffee beans come from Costas in Umeå who roasts his beans in one of Sweden’s first micro-roasteries. Costas has been a permanent fixture here in Umeå for the past 20 years and is now internationally recognised for his roasting. At Root we use Costas’ Godfather blend for our byrgg café which we grind here on site. We also used his Godfather’s blend in our cappuccinos and lattes.
Our head barista is Dan, who has wored with coffee in restaurants in London before moving up here to Tavelsjö. We also have two trainee baristas in Mimmi and Oskar.
For the coffee geeks out there, we use a La Marzocco GS3 and two Mahlkonig grinders. For milk we offer semi-skimmed milks as well as Oatly Barista Oat Milk.
Our coffees can be enjoyed here at Root and we also offer them for takeaway.
