Google+ Ristretto

Portland Monthly is on it:

A little bit of coffee gossip: Portland’s lauded Ristretto Roasters is now the official coffee of Google. After taste-testing the best roasters in the country, Google chose Ristretto to caffeinate its Seattle and Kirkland campuses.

Posies Bakery and Cafe, Let us Count the Ways…

Ristretto Roasters is delighted to work with every cafe to which we supply coffee, but admit to having a soft spot for Posies Bakery and Cafe, with whom we have been working for years. We love their pastry; we love how they make coffee; their cafe is adorable and warm and — their secret weapon and someone we will always bet on — owner Jessie Burke, powerhouse, delightful, ambitious, so cool, so smart. Keep an eye on her and her upcoming project in Chinatown, The Society Hotel.

Meet Your Barista – Hannah McQueen

Meet Hannah McQueen- a newer addition to our#ristrettoroasters family. Currently on repeat in her iTunes: “Once” by Laura Marling. Should you need to bribe Hannah, go with gluten-free peach blackberry pie, but we’ve been told she will accept cake. She can be found most days of the week at our Nicolai location, making a mean pour-over cup of Colombia. Her favorite book: Jane Eyre. Her inner beast, a Vulcan. She is excellent.
