As a leading specialty coffee roaster, we promise to be sustainable, honest, quality focused and excellent in our approach to roasting, sourcing and supplying coffee. We value community and are dedicated to forming positive relationships with everyone that gets a taste of Zest.
The best coffee experience in Melbourne, and quite possibly best in Australia…or maybe southern hemisphere . The team at Zest are incredible, they are extremely knowledgeable about coffee, brewing, the producers and the growing regions. The coffee flight will likely both open and blow your mind at the same time.
“The sensory flight experience offered by Zest should be on every coffee-lover’s bucket list. I can guarantee that you’ll learn something new regardless of your skillset. Whether you’re a seasoned barista or a budding home brewer, Damon’s insight will prove to be enlightening. 10/10 would visit again.”
“The best experience you can have here in coffee. We learned a lot and Damon is just the best barista and teacher. Thanks a Lot, guys!♥️”
“Had the best coffee experience here. Good chat with the very knowledgeable barista and gained lots of insights about the farm, bean varieties and processes. Very different from getting a coffee at a cafe because you get to ask a lot of questions and there are no distractions from customers walking in and out. Felt like a total VIP coming into this studio.”
“We did the coffee tasting experience with Damon which was amazing. He knows everything about the coffee from farm to cup. Thank you so much. We appreciated it.”
Neat setup! Highly recommended, awesome experience learning about different coffees. Damon is a star, great knowledge of the product and obviously enjoys what he does!
Will be back to try the other flight experiences 👍
Q J Local Guide
Stumbled in here on my way to a cafe. This is not a cafe. They don’t serve coffee, but I want to come here every day for a brew. They know their beans from farm to cup, their equipment is peak coffee geek and Damon is passionate about what he does. I hope there are enough frequent flyers (is that what you call it when you do a flight of coffee often?) that Zest can thrive here.
I had a truly amazing at the ZEST Coffee Roasters studio. I was lucky enough to meet both Damon and Simon at the experience studio. Together we enjoyed some outstanding coffees, both filter as well as espresso.
The coffee menu is offering a vast choice and I especially liked the detailed explanations. You can chose from “normal” to absolutely “crazy” coffees. There is a coffee for everyone preferences.
