The Kaffa Handshake

We believe that it is important to have a handshake and a smile to seal every deal. This personal touch is our only real way to ”know” the people we are doing business with. In this spirit and to better educate the coffee consumers in Finland, we are producing this The Kaffa Handshake contract which will help ensure that everyone we do business with sees and actively participates in following the Kaffa Roastery code of ethics.
