Located in NW Portland, Jim & Patty founded their insanely popular and much beloved Coffee People chain in 1975. "It was called Coffee Man and it evolved into Coffee People in 1983," says Jim. They made their coffee strong and kept their business mantra simple: "Good coffee. No backtalk." They expanded to around 40 locations in the Metro area over the years. Jim and Patty left Coffee People in 1998 to pursue new adventures, only to return in 2002 and open Jim and Patty's Coffee. Lucky us!
