Office Style :: Stumptown Coffee Roasters

March 20th, 2014

Stumptown Coffee Roasters has a die hard following of loyal fans who can’t go a day without it. With coffee shops in Seattle, New York, L.A., Portland (where the company is based) and more in the works, serious Stumptown Coffee love is quickly spreading across the globe. Behind-the-scenes and hard at work in the headquarters is an eclectic crew of musicians, artists, chefs, writers, cyclists, surfers, skaters, blacksmiths, printmakers, enthusiasts of books, gardening, making things, getting outside, doing creative work and of course, drinking coffee. When Duane Sorenson founded the first Stumptown coffee bar and roastery in 1999, he looked for people who were first and foremost passionate about something, so they could understand his passion for coffee. Some of those first employees are still working for Stumptown, where company events like employee art shows and barbecues with employee bands as the performers are a regular occurrence. Stumptown’s Social Media Manager and Blogger Katie Bernstein says of the special culture — “It’s one of the only workplaces I’ve ever seen that really nurtures your creative work outside of work.” From ping pong sessions to as much espresso as your heart desires, come along for a tour through their capital of caffeinated cool headquarters.

    So much fun to get a behind-the-scenes look at Stumptown and the creative people who work there. Any plans for an Austin location? I can see them fitting right into our coffee-loving city!

      I have heard that is a possibility! Would be a great fit for Austin…

        I read online somewhere that Houston was one of the top Coffee-Loving cities. So I’m totally believing that Austin is in the mix. It’s great to see coffee culture spreading across the country!
