A lifelong dream of pursuing his passion for the craft of exceptional coffee became reality for Charles Litterst when he took the leap and started Zavida Coffee Roasters in 1982. Today, that passion lives on at Zavida; a proudly Canadian company dedicated to the art of sourcing and blending quality beans enjoyed around the world. Here, we explore the art of coffee, playing with flavour like artists working with colours on canvas as we roast and pack our creations. We invite you to experience great-tasting coffee; classic and fun-flavoured alike; so get ready to explore life’s flavours with us, one sip at a time.

Flavoured coffee is a passion at Zavida, and it’s where we’ve placed most of our focus. The fun, happy, and celebratory nature of flavoured coffee is the cornerstone of our company. At Zavida, we focus most of our resources on creating and perfecting a curated range of flavoured coffees in different formats – from whole beans to ground coffee, single-serve cups, and individual pouches. We want to provide you with coffee in the format you like to enjoy it!

The liveliness of flavoured coffee is what inspired the name of Zavida! It’s a play on words for “la vida”, which means life in Spanish.

Quality Coffee with Notable Certifications!

We are proud to offer you a quality product thanks to our various certifications, from Organic certification to Rainforest Alliance certification, and many others! Our certifications include:


At Zavida, we care about the environment and social responsibility. We rely on the environment to sustain our business, and we want to give back. Not only do we actively seek out certifications that are good for the planet, such as USDA Organic, and that are good for society, such as the Colombian Coffee Growers Association – but we want to do more!


We plant trees to offset our carbon emissions on an annual basis. Our total carbon output is calculated by including all raw materials, transportation, and energy use, and we then plant enough trees to absorb all the carbon we emit every year. This allows us to achieve carbon neutrality.

Not only do the trees planted help the environment, but Trees for the Future plants in developing nations, enabling them to restore their environment, grow more food, and build a sustainable future. They revitalize degraded lands by providing farmers with tree seed, technical training, and on-site planning assistance to stimulate the local economy and promote tree planting in all sorts of environments globally.

Zavida cares deeply for the environment and the communities we work with to grow and harvest our coffee. Not only do we want to offer our customers coffee of the highest quality, but we also care about sourcing it in an environmentally and socially conscious way. That is why we partnered with The Rainforest Alliance Certified™ organization in 2006.

We source over 55% of our coffee from Rainforest Alliance Certified ™ farms, and this number grows every year. The reason we choose certified coffee is that it is grown on farms that adhere to strictly controlled use of agrochemicals, forests are protected, and rivers, soils, and wildlife conserved; workers are treated with respect, properly equipped, and their children are given access to education and medical care.

Our products that carry the Rainforest Alliance seal help to ensure that the Alliance continues to work with coffee farmers to improve their livelihoods and the health and well-being of their communities. Since 1995, the Rainforest Alliance has strengthened the position of coffee farmers by training them in methods that boost yields and safeguard the health of the land for future generations.

At Zavida, not only do we want to make sure our source products are environmentally sustainable, but we also care about recycling! Not only does this reduce our carbon footprint further, but it reduces strain on primary natural resources and the energy needed to harvest and produce from raw timber.We decided to use only 100% recycled corrugated boxes for our shipping needs. Not only are our shipping boxes made from recycled paper, but they can also be recycled after they have been used. Manufactures of 100% recycled corrugated cartons primarily source their materials from recycling plants and from managed and sustained pine tree forests wherein the timber is replaced with new seedlings to begin the process over again. This is a process we truly believe in to protect our natural resources and reuse paper products that are already in circulation.
