Modern Style Meets Historic Charm | From its inception to construction, the Roaster’s Block buildings have exuded vintage elegance and historic charm while remaining a cornerstone of the city skyline. In 1950, Folgers Coffee Company, the #1 selling coffee in America at the time, purchased The Boss and Swofford buildings and relocated their roasting plant here. From then until 2012, the aroma of fresh-roasted coffee permeated KC’s downtown. The Roaster’s Block name is a tribute to Folgers six-decades of success. Live amidst KC history!
