We love our roasters so much. Each partnership is extremely important to us and ultimately to you. We believe that our roasters are some of the best in the world and we are incredibly proud to represent such amazing coffees, roasters, and sourcing practices.
Founded in 2015, Upper Left Roasters has quickly gained a reputation for their simple, seasonal menu of delicious coffees carefully sourced from around the world and roasted on site in their beautifully light-filled cafe located in Southeast Portland, Oregon.
Sterling was founded in 2010 in a tiny stand and has since grown with two locations and a roasting facility in NW Portland. We are purveyors of the finest coffees the world over, paying upmost attention to ethical sourcing and methodical roast and preparation techniques. We are proud to be considered among the very best coffee companies in the best coffee city in the country.
Sublime, animated coffees stir within us a sense of awe and astonishment. They are the result of a combination of incredibly hard work, focus, and aligning stars; they have soul. We are driven to find the most compelling coffees from earnest, inspiring producers. Here in Wisconsin we develop roast profiles that reveal and celebrate these qualities.
Our goal at Dapper & Wise is to source and roast the best coffees we can find, to keep inventing new ways to treat our employees and coffee producers better, to be funny slightly more often than we are serious, to consistently offer the tastiest coffees and beverages in our cafes, to be at minimum very nice to everyone who walks in our doors, to teach our friends and customers about coffee in a nice and un-pretentious way, and to have fun while we are doing all of those things. It’s a long goal with a lot of commas and dependent clauses, but we think it’s worth it.
1000 Faces is a specialty coffee roaster and cafe, but symbolically, we are a merchant of change and voyager of the agrarian spirit. Since we opened our doors in Athens, Georgia back in 2006, we have been working in partnership with the two most important ends of the 1000 Faces spectrum: the grower and the customer. It is this partnership that is at the foundation for real economic sustainability for not just us, but all parties involved. We believe that respect for geographic origin, direct relationships, and ecological awareness is the basis for creating a more sustainable coffee culture.
