Zoka Coffee Roasting Co.

Award-winning family direct trade coffee roaster in Seattle, WA. Sourcing some of the finest coffees from around the world.

In 1996, University of Washington Alumni Jeff Babcock created Zoka Coffee Roaster & Tea Company. Nestled in the heart of Seattle’s Wallingford District, this vibrant café has become a hub of activity and community, open seven days a week. Thanks to the small-batch roasting of Zoka coffees, homemade baked goods and hand-sourced teas, it’s often hard to find a seat. Now with the third Zoka Coffee Roaster & Tea House, Kirkland Zoka, customers have recently been given another chance to settle in with a Zoka cappuccino and scone.

The cornerstone concept of the Zoka Coffee Roaster & Tea Company is a focus on our local community. Where other coffeehouses may hurry customers out the door, we at Zoka invite you to stay, and feel honored when you decide to settle in with us for a whole afternoon (that’s why we tempt you with free wireless Internet).
Where we regard our customers with warmth and respect, we consider our coworkers as close as family. Each Zoka partner brings new creativity, ideas and joy to the table, thereby continuing what has become a grand tradition of diversity and originality at Zoka.

We treasure the bonds we share with customers and fellow baristas, and we hope you’ll join us in growing our family bigger still.

We love it when photographers take photos of people at Zoka 😍 in this case @brynaea took this amazing 📸 of @joellefriend drinking her ☕️

Zoka University cafe is definitely the place to study. Cozy up by the fireplace and 📚!

Slayer Espresso Interviews Jeff Babcock

Slayer Espresso stopped by the Zoka roastery for a cupping and coffee talk with Jeff Babcock. Check out the video!

Cupping coffees is essential. It's the only way to find the best coffee among many coffees. We go through countless cuppings to find the perfect coffee! #funfact #zokacoffee

We are now roasting two new coffees: Ethiopia Halo Bariti Yirgacheffe & Guatemala Santa Felisa Red Bourbon!

Pictured: Anabella Meneses with Jeff Babcock. Anabella and her brother Antonio run Santa Felisa; producing some of Guatemala's best coffee - we're proud to be roasting their coffee!

Yesterday the Zoka team held four cuppings at McDonald International School. It's amazing to see the reactions of people first discovering the amazing complexion that is coffee! We brewed Turkish coffee for the attendees top the night off - great times!

We're celebrating Mother's Day this Sunday! Moms get 20% off their order at our Greenlake, Kirkland and UW cafes. #mothersday #zokacoffee
