Intentionally Crafted

Zona Coffee Roasters use love and respect for each bean's unique characteristics so it can reach its fullest potential in the roasting process.

Roasting is an art and we make sure our craft creates an incredible result. Roasting in small batches by hand and cupping (sampling) each bean along the way allows us to yield some of the most exciting and desirable roasts you will find.

OUR STORY

Meet Kory!

In 2009, Kory took his first trip to Guatemala and fell instantly in love with the country and its people. Not knowing what was going to come of his trip, Kory knew something inside him changed.

During a gathering of friends filled with conversation, Kory experienced a revelation that not many people can wrap their heads around until they've actually had it themselves. He took his first sip of coffee sans cream and sugar! He was hooked! This was coffee locally sourced and meticulously cared for through every stage of its development – this was coffee as coffee should be.

After that, the brainstorming began and there was no doubt in Kory's mind that others needed to experience this as well. His heart knew that sharing an excellent cup of coffee was only a small part of the road before him. He needed to honor and give recognition in a way that benefited the hard work and sacrifice made day-in and day-out by the families and communities from whence the coffee came.

Kory spent years serving Guatemalan communities and hours perfecting his coffee skills. Once he was back in the United States, he purchased his own small coffee roaster and ordered his first sack of fresh, direct trade coffee. Zona Coffee Roasters was born!
