The digital environment will be called “We Roast Metaverse” and will represent the first Coffee roaster entirely intended for the metaverse! The idea was conceived by Federico Buompane, 15 years old, and will be the final project of a work experience assigned to him by his St. Gabriel's College in London where he has lived for about four years together with his family who moved from Latina (Italy).

What he wants to bring to life for those who land on the We Roast virtual platform is to make them perceive the same experience as when they enter a traditional coffee roastery, where you can choose your coffees and roasting profiles, for single origins or blends, buy them and receive them at home or in your café. Also, you can access the room academy and acquire skills in the coffee sector. roasting is based on sustainability and technology already inherent in the promotional practice of smartphones and crowdfunding, in reward mode whereby purchasing coffee bags from Mexico through a social project, the populations from where we draw for raw materials are also helped


With every bag of coffee purchased through this campaign, this project supports the new generations in innovation and in bringing clean water to coffee-growing communities through the Water Fall Project, or rather in the offline world as it is now defined, but thanks to the added value it that the young Federico will bring, the roasting company operating in the heart of the English capital will reach the online world in a completely ingenious and above all unique way, given that it will be the first company in the sector to open in the Metaverse.


A key catalyst alongside Federico Buompane will be SpatialPort Inc, an immersive 3D eCommerce company from San Francisco (USA), which will provide the interactive metaverse marketplace platform app to the young student by creating a virtual “MetaSTORE” representation that will go beyond the classic concept of e-commerce. 


We Roast CEO Francesco Buompane, proud of this project, as well as for obvious reasons also for having received the consent and approval of advisors from two important figures in the sector such as Genevieve Leveille, CEO, and founder of AgriLedger is a leading international company in applying blockchain technology to agriculture, and Joseph De Villier CEO of World Coffee Alliance, a worldwide network of professionals and consultants specialized in the world of coffee. Please find in the REWARDS how to support the project.
