Served south of Calgary, you can find the up-and-coming Red Engine Coffee Roasters based out of Lethbridge! These home-grown grounders launched their business in 2010 and have built a dedicated local following around their café, Sonder Coffee, that offers an array of both coffee and food options.

Our SkipTheDepot selection from Red Engine Coffee Roasters is the Uteuzi Jimbo blend from Kenya that is great for giving you an extra jolt in the morning. This sweet blend incorporates sugar, lemon, and chocolate, creating a well balanced brew that will raise eyebrows with how good it is.

Now with seven locations in Calgary, owners Jesse, David and Cole have developed a brand that encapsulates the value that each coffee is an individualistic experience unique to their customers.

SkipTheDepot’s choice from Rosso Coffee Roasters is the Gahahe Honey Red Bourbon blend sourced from the Kayanza region of Burundi. This brew is crafted from the complementary tones of raspberry and dark chocolate.
