The "us" is James & Sheryl Helms, long time residents of the Rocky Butte community in Portland, OR. Working with coffee started as a hobby for us. We love coffee and we set out to learn how to brew our perfect cup. As our quest continued, we also began learning how to source and roast the beans that would provide us with our perfect cup of coffee. As it turns out, the coffee wasn't just our favorite, friends and family loved the coffee that we were roasting too.
While we love coffee, we also love people and we love where we live, even if it does have it's fair share of challenges. We've invested in our community for many years, the label "community instigators" match who we are and what we do really well. We've reached a point where we want to invest in our community more. We created Rocky Butte Coffee Roasters so that we could live and work even closer in our community.
We are ramping up production now, by purchasing coffee from Rocky Butte Coffee Roasters you're making an impact in the community!
Join us as we move towards a pop up coffee shop, presence at local Farmer's Markets and over time, opening a local coffee shop, a place for our neighbors to connect and enjoy our best cup of coffee.
