First and foremost, we are delighted to serve our Kenton friends and neighbors Stumptown’s finest roasts. Because friends don’t let friends drink un-ripe, over roasted coffee picked by massive machines using indirect and generally unfair trading practices.
No, no they don’t.
All of Stumptown’s beans are picked by hand, only when fully ripened. And trade practices are direct with the farmers – no middle men or unfair pricing. The beans are roasted right here in Portland at a multi-million dollar roastery designed to minimize environmental impact. All coffee is roasted to order and the words “light, medium and dark” are never discussed at Stumptown. Beans are roasted to the point where the maximum flavor pops. Does this sound a little up-tight? Uh-oh, that may be so. But, when speaking about our favorite Portland Roaster, it’s hard not to show a little pride.Read More
CUP is on a mission to improve coffee shop food and we’re almost certainly #winning. Visit CUP for breakfast, lunch or an evening snack and you won’t find pre-packaged microwaved chewy stuff. But you will find awesome breakfast bagels with fresh cooked eggs and melted cheese on a soft Sunrise bagel of your choice. You could also encounter a homemade breakfast burrito that’s out of this world or the Caprese Panino with fresh tomatoes & basil, melted mozzarella and aged balsamic vinaigrette.
If these don’t wet your appetite, try the Apple Pork or the Turkey Pesto panini with Bacon. Those are just to name a few and if you’re vegan or gluten free, we have you covered too!Read More

In all our travels in and around North Portland Peninsula we haven’t really found any coffee shops that offer happy hour. Maybe it’s just a bar thing, but we thought “why don’t coffee shops have happy hour?” Realizing we own a coffee house and that we can do whatever...Read More
