Honoring Every Human Connected to Our Coffee
For over 20 years, we’ve held an uncompromising commitment to quality: not only in our coffees, but in the way we treat the planet and the people who make what we do possible.
Partnering With Producers
We’re dedicated to sourcing the world’s best coffees while challenging supply chain norms. We do this by honoring our Direct Trade relationships, paying quality premiums for our coffees, and creating multi-year commitments to our producers.
Celebrating Our People
As a people-first culture, we're committed to creating a safe, welcoming, and inclusive community for the humans of Stumptown by providing training, resources, healthcare, special-interest programs, and time for personal growth.
Sustaining Our Planet
We’re committed to sustainability in our cafes, breweries, and roasting facilities. We're actively working to reduce energy and water consumption, and have set a goal to have zero landfill-bound waste in our manufacturing operations by 2025.
Proud to be a Corp
We've joined over 4,500 companies working to mindfully grow business with an emphasis on social and environmental accountability and transparency.
We’re still bringing you the best coffee in the best way we know how, using Direct Trade sourcing to ensure the highest quality of life for coffee producers around the world. This includes supporting origin-led projects to create solutions to sustainability challenges in coffee-producing communities.
The humans of Stumptown continue to blow our minds with their talent, dynamism, and individualism. Last year we added greater incentives to our benefits package, we engaged in community projects, and we continue to strive to create a warm, welcoming, and inclusive community for all.
We amped up our sustainability efforts in our cafes, breweries, and roasting and manufacturing facilities. And we’re rolling out plans to reduce energy consumption, water consumption, and landfill-bound waste across all our operations.
