There’s a tug of loyalties with Stumptown, Portland’s coffee pioneers founded in 1999 by Duane Sorenson, who originally hails from Puyallup near Seattle. Stumptown practically defined the new third-wave coffee movement when it opened its first cafe in downtown Portland, selling fair-trade, single-origin, home-roasted coffee with an emphasis on taste rather than cup size.

The ethics served to inspire just about every other indie coffee roaster in the US, so it’s hardly surprising you’ll still find a sizable contingent of Stumptown loyalists, especially among the Seattleites who congregate in this busy nook, one of two Stumptowns in Capitol Hill.
