I think it's time for you all to meet another member of our team, Zach. When you stop by the roastery you'll hear him singing around the warehouse, caught wrapped in bubble wrap on most afternoons, or roasting the coffee ya'll enjoy. Without further adieu...here are some fun facts about Zach!

1. What is your role at One Village Coffee?

Head Roaster, Cold Brew Consultant and Handyman.

2. How long have you been in the specialty coffee industry?

I have been with One Village for almost 4 years and before that I was a barista for a year or so.

3. What was it that initiated your love for coffee?

I remember the first WHOA moment was probably around the summer of 2013. I was in my friend Bobby's kitchen and he had just opened a bag of a natural processed Ethiopian coffee.  I'm pretty sure he brewed it in a siphon. I took one sip and was like, "Blueberries and cream!?!" I had just graduated high school and during high school I drank instant coffee and diner coffee, so natural processed coffee was a new idea to me.

4. What is your favorite coffee to drink or your favorite way to brew coffee?

My favorite brew method is probably the Chemex.

5. Tell us a random fact about yourself.

I play guitar, build effects pedals and speaker cabinets, and enjoy long walks on the beach. I'm single and ready to mingle.

Say hi to Zach everyone and if you're single ladies, make sure to stop by and say hi!
