1. Zeal Coffee Roasters
Zeal began in a garage with a DIY roaster constructed from a popcorn popper from a chop shop, which within a few months evolved into a sophisticated coffee roasting machine.
It was the desire to make a better cup of coffee and to learn all possible about coffee.
Even if the ambition of having a coffee shop came true, the concept of exceptional coffee was yet to be realized.
So, the owner decided to begin roasting his own coffee after a few years of experimenting with various coffees and splitting from the original company.
It became not only a love for him but also an ambition to find the best roasting and sourcing techniques, and thus began the amazing journey of Zeal.
