We are specialty coffee roasters dedicated to offering top quality coffees and on a mission to give back.
Our company started out with two childhood best friends attempting to roast coffee over their fireplace using a roaster they built from scratch. They fascened a bicycle to a rotating drum and slowly tumbled the beans over the fire, producing a wonderful, wood-fired brew. Their next step was building their first storefront, remodeling an old aristocrat trailer as their base and turning into their very own coffee cart. They quickly outgrew the food truck and went on to open their first brick and mortar at 6633 NE Sandy Blvd in Portland, OR. That location is still happily serving it's customers and has since been published in numerous publications, including the Travel Channel, Portland Monthly and Dirt Road Travels. We've also had the honor of being featured as Rocket Espresso's guest roaster at the Specialty Coffee Association in Seattle, Washington in both 2017 and 2018. After opening our first brick and mortar we moved on to open our second in our hometown of The Dalles, Oregon. Our shop there also houses our roasting facility!
We love serving our customers and and our local communities both by the goods we serve and the charity work we do. Below you can read all about our biggest charity partner, Lifechild Asia, and how the coffee you buy is used to provide clothes, food and education in the Philippines to children in need.

Coffee that gives back: LifeChild Asia
We started our company with the goal in mind of being able to give back globally and locally. Currently, our global charity efforts are focused on LifeChild Asia Foundation. LifeChild Asia helps give abandoned Philippine children homes and into school. We have had the please of personally visiting the facilities and meeting the kids that our customers support daily simply by buying coffee. The kiddos pictured above are some of the children we have the privildege of directly supporting at LifeChild.
Locally, we have been partnering with various organizations like Cupcake Girls. CG provides confidential support to those involved in the sex industry, as well as those affected by domestic sex trafficking through holistic resources, case management, and after care. We've also had the pleasure of donating coffee and pastries to churches and schools in the Portland area.
We humbly share this information not to pat ourselves on the back, but rather show how when we all come together to promote kindness and love, big things happen. We have a ton of respect for the organizations we support and want to sing their praises and share their mission with you as much as possible!
