Our founder “Z” has a passion for coffee and philanthropy. Through this passion Z decided to source the world’s finest coffee to sell and serve, he knew that Colombia was the place to go. Colombia produces the best Arabica beans in the world, and is home of the world’s finest estate coffees.
His search for the perfect beans brought him to the Andean Mountain Region and upon connecting with local farmers in the area, he knew he had found the coffee that he was looking for!
Not only does Z have a passion for coffee, but he has a passion for people.
He works towards inclusion at Lava Mountain and is incredibly intentional with how he cares for those around him. The owner of our store was motivated by both his passions to fuse them into an ethical and people-focused business. When you enter the store, you will see how he has combined them exquisitely to create a space for fostering community and enjoying a good cup of coffee.
Our mission is to source premium estate coffee, while also providing our customers with a unique coffee experience through our coffee and our environmentally responsible business. We work towards creating jobs and providing training for people with disabilities in a setting where they can be themselves and show the world their abilities.
