Accompany Portland Caffeinates Before the Offsite
To make sure we had enough energy for our offsite, we decided to first head over to Water Avenue Coffee where we learned about how they roast, select, and profile a variety of beans from all over the world.
On the banks of the Willamette River in Portland Oregon’s Southeast Industrial District, Water Avenue Coffee Roasters, founded by industry pioneers, began roasting artisan coffees in the winter of 2009. The spark of inspiration that appeared in 2009 has grown into one of Portland’s most well-respected coffee companies. In September of 2015, Water Avenue Coffee started roasting in a freshly remodeled warehouse on three new Proaster coffee roasters and expanded it’s training lab and wholesale offices.
