Frukt is a small and dedicated specialty coffee roastery based in the Kakola neighbourhood in Turku, Finland. After working as a roaster at the local Turun Kahvipaahtimo roastery, and later at the Coffee Collective in Copenhagen, Samuli Pääkkönen founded Frukt in his hometown in late 2018.
The name ‘Frukt’ doesn’t really mean anything in English or Finnish, yet in Swedish, Norwegian and Danish it means ‘fruit’ – and it was chosen as a name as the coffee bean is part of a fruit. Frukt was born out of the need to create a roastery with a modern approach in Turku, Finland – focusing on high-quality small-batch speciality coffee beans. The idea is to focus on transparency in terms of the origin, cost structure, and taste of the coffee.
The coffees are roasted in small batches on a Loring S7 Nighthawk roaster. Loring has long been used by the best roasters in the world, and many roasters that have previously roasted with traditional drum roasters have switched to using the newer technology offered by Loring. Due to focusing more on hot air recirculation, the device is very energy efficient and has minimal emissions. Despite its small size and capacity of seven kilograms, the Loring S7 is also efficient to use when roasting numerous batches one after the other during a day. After all, many people think that the roasts end up tasting much cleaner and less toasty.
