Located in NW Portland, Kobos Coffee has been a true pioneer in the world of specialty coffee. Since opening their doors in 1973, Kobos is proud to have been at the forefront of economic, environmental, and social change within the coffee industry. Kobos has learned true sustainability comes when all of these issues are addressed. Kobos drum roasts all of their coffee beans in small batches. This not only ensures the coffee we sell is as fresh as possible, it also allows them to focus on the unique characteristics of each varietal.
