Cappuccino at Portland, OR’s Water Avenue Coffee

Portland-based Stumptown Coffee has helped pave the way for the city’s micro coffee roasters by showing a company could feasibly source, roast, and serve its own coffee, rather than purchasing from an outside roaster—in a sense, controlling the coffee from the field to the cup. Here’s a look at some of the faces of the Portland micro coffee roasting scene.

About francoiseeats

I'm currently working as a freelance travel and food writer, and photographer. I spent two years at, the culinary on-line magazine for the industry insider. My articles have been published in New York, NY and Richmond, VA. After graduating from Columbia University and recovering from the tragedy of not being able to read Camus books for a living, I attended The Culinary Institute of America, where my scone consumption rose drastically. Fluent in French and Italian, I've worked in some of New York's top restaurants and covered food-related stories in a number of publications, from The Richmond Times-Dispatch to Time Out New York.
