THERE IS NOTHING ZEST LOVES MORE THAN WORKING ON THE FARM. KEEN TO LEARN THROUGH DOING. CURIOUS ABOUT DEVELOPING FLAVOUR TECHNIQUES THAT ADD VALUE AND LIFT PRODUCT VALUE FOR THE PRODUCER. FERMENTATION. PROCESSING METHODS. ALWAYS LEARNING. ALWAYS EXPLORING. ZEST ADDS VALUE TO FARMERS THROUGH KNOWLEDGE SHARING AND EXPERIMENTATION. DRIVEN BY OUR FASCINATION WITH FLAVOUR.

 

OUR GOAL IS TO IMPROVE THE LIVES OF COFFEE WORKERS AND THEIR FAMILIES, TO INNOVATE IN PROCESSING AND EXPLORE FERMENTATION. TO EDUCATE, TO SHARE KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE, GIVING BACK TO THESE AMAZING COMMUNITIES.

 

To date our journeys have taken us to fascinating origins, the four corners of the earth, including Costa Rica, Jamaica, Ethiopia, China, Papua New Guinea, Sumatra and, most recently, Peru.

These have been missions of flavour creation, collaborating with our direct trade partners, to work at farm level exploring fermentation and processing techniques. Our goal is to improve the lives of coffee workers and farmers, innovate with processing, educate and give back to the community.

Fermentation is an opportunity to impart flavours and complexity into what would otherwise be sold as commodity coffee. We seek to create flavours that would otherwise not have existed and in so doing enable farmers and co-ops to sell their lots at a premium.
