Foundation Coffee Roasters
Since its start in 2014, Foundation has sought to actively participate in the development of Ukraine’s coffee culture. According to Ksusha, who works at the shop, coffee’s popularity has grown in Odessa in the past five years, and Foundation’s locally roasted beans are a significant part of that. “We sell to popular coffee shops in Odessa such as White Whale, Traveler’s, Atelier, and restaurants like Reef and others. Our coffee is also sold in other Ukrainian cities,” she explains. In 2019, Foundation won the national culinary Salt award in the category Best Coffee Shop in Ukraine and offers quality coffee roasted on-site, knowledgeable staff and even classes for those interested in upping their brewing game. The café also does an array of delicious desserts and pastries.
