Our Story

Zoka Coffee Roasting Company opened its doors on January 7th, 1997 in the heart of Tangletown.  Starting off small, founder Jeff Babcock roasted right out of his Greenlake coffee shop, sharing his passion directly with our local neighborhood customers. Since then he’s managed to grow his business and offer incredible coffee throughout the country, partnering with some of the best coffee farmers in the world.

With an emphasis on quality and relationships, Zoka has established itself in some of Seattle’s most dynamic neighborhoods. Each location fosters a strong sense of community and respect for coffee. Zoka’s shops offer a welcome environment and great place to sample some of Seattle’s most exceptional beans.
