Steve Duisterhof, owner of Gordon Water, was traveling in Antigua, Guatemala for a Water Treatment project. While having breakfast on an open terrace, surrounded by mountains, Steve tasted the most exquisite cup of coffee. That experience compelled him to explore the world of Specialty Coffee. AZO was established in 2003. Steve and Ginny Duisterhof have been roasting and exploring the wonders of quality coffee ever since.
