We value people. Over our long history, relationships have been at the heart of what matters to us at Portland Roasting Coffee. Back in 1999, we were one of the first in the Pacific Northwest to forge direct trade relationships with farmers. After just a few years in, we were regularly visiting and nurturing long lasting relationships with our coffee growers.
Being able to engage cafe customers in conversations about our direct relationships at the retail level is the natural next step for us to extend that coffee relationship into our community here in Portland, Oregon. Plus, our coffee is delicious!
