Stumptown Coffee Roasters
One of Portland's most prominent representatives of what's known as the 'third wave coffee movement,' Stumptown began as a single shop in 1999, only to expand nation-wide during the following two decades. Founder Duane Sorenson went many extra miles to ensure that not only the final product, but the process of its procurement were above par: he visited the coffee farms in person, and reportedly paid multiple times the fair trade price for the beans, once reportedly setting the record for paying the highest price on coffee beans ever recorded. Needless to say, an amazing cup is to be had at any of the iconic shop's nationwide locations (despite the fact they recently changed ownership). Other coffee shops in Portland serve Stumptown roasts, too.
