Rosso Specialty Coffee in the Marketplace at Avalon Park


High Quality Coffee Roasting Shop Takes the 7th of 9 Available Vendor Bays


Orlando, FL (June 5, 2020) – Marketplace at Avalon Park is pleased to announce that Rosso Specialty Coffee has signed an agreement today for a vendor bay in the Marketplace at Avalon Park scheduled to open fall 2020.

Rossos was founded by Karen Blankenzee, who spent almost 30 years exploring the world through different adventures.  This led her to her passion and desire to open a coffee roasting company in Longwood, Florida.  In 2011 she was encouraged by her mentor to study the professional world of coffee where she grew her knowledge of the art and science of coffee began to grow.   “After exploring many options and locations, I determined that central Florida was where I wanted to introduce a Rosso Specialty Coffee,” said Blankenzee.  “I love that I can utilize my experience and travel to bring the best coffee to our community.”  Rossos produces, roasts and brews their finest beans at their Longwood location and will be offering their products for individual purchase or wholesale options at the Marketplace.

“With only a few vendor spaces left available in the Marketplace, it is important to find the perfect fit for the community,” says Mara Hunt, Marketplace at Avalon Park. “Karen and Rosso Specialty Coffee brings a high-quality coffee option to east Orlando, something that I believe has been limited for some time.”

Rosso Specialty Coffee will open in the Marketplace this fall, but in the meantime, the specialty coffee can be purchased online at
