Thank you for considering Ristretto Roasters for your wholesale coffee needs. We are a locally owned company specializing in artisan coffees ideal for cafes, restaurants and retailers serving the high-end coffee market. Ristretto coffees are hand-roasted in our Portland roastery in small batches and quickly delivered, with low minimum orders to meet the needs of our clients.
We travel and research extensively to source coffees directly from farmers who care as much about the quality of their craft as we care about ours. We strive to offer Direct Trade certifications as much as possible. This offers us the unparalleled opportunity to form lasting relationships with growers, as well as to observe the practices and procedures of those with whom we do business, and to learn how we can contribute to sustainability and the common good. Many of the farmers we work with are small family businesses, as are we, and to whom we always pay fair and above-market prices.
We maintain a consistent selection of blends, including Beaumont Blend Espresso, Cowboy Blend, and Tres Burros Blend so your customers can enjoy the flavor profiles they look forward to. We also source single origin beans, frequently changing our inventory to feature the best coffees available in a given season, and offer customers a full spectrum of coffees and flavor profiles.

We hold cuppings at the each of our cafes weekly; check individual cafe locations for days and times.
