Inferno Coffee Company is a coffee company based out of Edmonton Alberta Canada. We started this company to help share our great tasting coffee with the world and promote our true love and passion for this amazing beverage. Small batch roasting is a technique that ensures that each batch of coffee is of superior quality and roasted evenly to the desired roast profile, not mass produced. This process draws out the best possible flavor in each batch. Small batch roasting permits a higher quality of standards in coffee throughout the complete process: from picking out the correct coffee beans, to choosing the correct charge & drop temperature, to slowly roasting each small batch to perfection. I can assure that you will never find a company so dedicated to bringing you the finest & freshest coffees from all over the world.
Inferno Coffee is also helping raise money and awareness for PTSD related charities for First Responders. The founder, a Firefighter himself, has seen first hand the effects that post traumatic stress has had on individuals, and the toll that it can take on that person's family. Through Inferno we hope to help bring this disease to light and help create a community that will ensure that no one will ever suffer alone.
Steve came across Inferno Coffee in a very unorthodox way. A firefighter by trade, he began to know coffee very well during his probationary period as a firefighter. During his probationary year, a probationary firefighter has 3 main jobs at the fire hall: answer the phone, answer the door, and always ensure there is a fresh pot of coffee brewing in the kitchen. It did not take long for Steve to figure out that coffee and firefighters go hand in hand. He noticed that every single Fire Station he went to always had a “fresh” pot of coffee brewing. The only problem was that the “fresh” pot of coffee was never actually fresh. This is when the idea of Inferno Coffee was born. Steve started to think of what the perfect fire hall coffee experience would consist of. At that time, most of the coffee found in fire halls was big name brands. This meant that the beans were mass produced and had sat on the shelf for months on end, if not longer. When a coffee bean is roasted, it will usually stay fresh for about 2 weeks before it starts to become stale. Most of the larger brands mass produce beans and lack in quality and freshness. This is where the idea came to bring in small batch, freshly roasted coffee to the First Responder community. Inferno Coffee has become a prominent coffee company in the Edmonton area that is known for superior quality and taste. Although Inferno initially began with a goal to provide freshly roasted coffee to the First Responder community, Inferno’s recognition and reputation has spread to coffee lovers all over Edmonton and Calgary, while also reaching the eastern and western coasts of Canada.
Ryan joined Inferno Coffee this year as a part of Inferno’s growth in the city of Calgary . Ryan’s passion for coffee began many years ago while working in Alberta’s oil field. As a technician working all sorts of hours, a good cup of java was crucial to staying alert and focused. The problem was - all the coffee available wasn’t actually good coffee. Whether it was pod coffee, drive thru coffee, or pre-ground, every cup was left wanting. That’s when Ryan started looking into what real fresh coffee was, and how important it was to roast and grind coffee fresh for each brew. So when Inferno began to expand into Calgary, it was only natural for Ryan to come on board!
