They currently operate 7 cafes, managed a wholesale network north of 100 accounts, and travel the world purchasing from local producers in developing nations. David Crosby graduate Acadia University in 2007 with a BBA and made his way back to Calgary. Due to the economic climate, instead of trading stock and managing portfolios as he had planned, David’s path took a turn and lead him to the world of coffee. The first Cafe Rosso, since rebranded as Rosso Coffee Roasters, had David wearing every hat in the business. Ten years later, David has become CEO and still has a hands-on presence in training, procurement and many other aspects of the business.
