A spark of ingenuity and perseverance can be found among dozens of food entrepreneurs from Twin Falls to Ketchum, who have thought out of the box.
For example, Liz Roquet needed a job when Icebreaker announced it was moving from Ketchum to Portland, Ore. Instead of scanning the want ads, she decided to start her own business - Lizzy's Fresh Coffee.
The business has taken her to the lush green hillsides of Colombia where she participated in a cupping contest. It has outfitted a team of Third World soccer players in uniforms. And it's provided her customers with coffee blends and labels that are uniquely theirs.
