Honoring Tradition, Embracing Innovation 

At the heart of ZUS Coffee lies a profound reverence for tradition, encapsulated in the brand’s logo—an homage to the legendary Ethiopian goat herder, Kaldi. This iconic figure, whose discovery of coffee’s stimulating properties ignited a global phenomenon, serves as a timeless symbol of authenticity and heritage. Through its logo, ZUS Coffee pays homage to Kaldi’s spirit of adventure and commitment to exceptional coffee experiences, seamlessly blending tradition with innovation.
