Stumptown Coffee Roasters
Oregon, United States
Stumptown Coffee Roasters is a roaster, wholesaler and retailer of specialty coffee, founded and headquartered in Portland, Oregon. Stumptown was started with the goal of doing things differently, with a vision that’s always been a little left-of-center, and with the focus squarely on quality. They source the best coffees in the world and strive to maintain transparent, quality-based relationships with their farmers along the way. From plant to portafilter, they pay homage to these folks through their own fervent attention to detail at every step, quality control in their cupping labs, meticulous roasting profiles and extensive barista education. They are committed to the well-being of everyone they work with, from the farmers and the communities they live in, to their employees and communities here in the States. They value their relationships with their customers, growers, and each other. With roastery facilities in four cities, several cafes, and fantastic wholesale partnerships around the country, there’s a lot to be proud of here.
