Kaldi's Coffee Roasting Co. Chasing Quality and Serving People. These two passions have fueled Kaldi’s since they opened their first Kaldi's café in the Demun neighborhood of St. Louis in 1994. The longer they’ve pursued great coffee, the more eager they’ve been to share it with their guests far and near. The wider their circle of customers and partnerships has grown, the harder they’ve chased after great coffee to strengthen those relationships. These pursuits also connect us back in time. From the moment that the goat herder Kaldi saw his flock eating mysterious seeds in the hills of 6th century Ethiopia, coffee has been stimulating excitement and connecting people all over the world. Today, centuries later, Kaldi’s Coffee takes part in the same story.
