But in P-town, Stumptown is the leading coffee roaster, carried by many of the top restaurants and fellow coffee houses. The less-than-a-decade-old company has been a media darling of the coffee world, an example of the ethical-indie coffee scene, paying top dollar for everything from their beans to their baristas.

Stumptown plans to open a new cafe in our town, on 12th Avenue near Seattle University. Not so unusual, its founder Duane Sorenson is a Seattleite. The company has already started courting clients and will set up a local roaster. This is to go with their obsessive insistence that wholesale customers receive the freshest coffee possible, meaning they have said "no" to any coffee houses and retailers outside the PDX area until now.
