Stumptown Coffee is all about cafes, baristas, relationships and the world. From the first café and roastery opened in 1999, the mission has remained the same.
Headquartered in Portland, Oregon, Stumptown was started with the goal of doing things differently, with a vision focused on quality. The company strives to source the best coffees in the world, understanding and monitoring quality, and how the coffee is grown, picked, separated and processed. In addition Stumptown works to maintain close relationships with their farmers. "We are committed to the well-being of everyone we work with, from the farmers and the communities they live in, to our employees and communities here in the States." The roastery facilities have now expanded to three cities across the US, and expanded to several cafes and wholesale partnerships around the country, including Whole Foods.
We sampled several Stumptown coffees:
Our favorite was Hair Bender – We were delighted with this full-bodied, rich cup – perfect for espresso and cappuccino as well.
Hair Bender is complex blend featuring coffee from every major producing region. It is described as "complex sweet and savory blend, which yields flavors of milk chocolate, caramel, jasmine, Meyer lemon, apricot and pineapple".
Hair Bender is $14.00 for a 12 Oz Bag
Coffees range from $14.00 to $25.50 for 12 ounce bags
