Sisters Coffee Coffee Company is a family owned business with over 20 years of rich local history. Their Portland shop is located on the corner of Northwest 13th and Marshall in the Pearl district, which is walking distance from our new apartment. The shop is two stories, with plenty of space to meet with a group of friends on the main floor or find a nice perch upstairs to do some work alone.

The week we decided to go in they had a beautiful art installation of gliding, blue paper airplanes cascading from the second to first story by artist  Abigail Renola T Jaden. The interior is strewn with a rustic cabin feel that made me feel a little bit like a lumber jack, which is not too far off considering the background of Sisters. They have a bunch of antlers that adorn their walls and it made me feel like I was back home. I grew up in a very rural area of Oregon surrounded by farmland, lots of trees, and little mom and pop cafes with antlers on the walls just like in Sisters in the Pearl.

Sisters roast their own coffee beans in Sisters, Oregon at their first shop and facility which actually is a mom and pop place. It all began back in 1989 with a husband and wife team who decided to start their own business. 22 years after supplying their local community with fantastic mountain roasted brews and fresh in house baked goods, they opened their shop in the Pearl district. They also provide the roasts for the entire campus of Concordia University in Northeast Portland and were key in training their staff and making the menu at Concordia’s Cafe 1905. I always love to hear a story of a family business gaining success in their community and expanding their influence, not only their delicious goods, but their positive socially responsible message.

When we visited their Pearl district location, I ordered their signature Black Butte Bomber, which is house drip with a few shots of espresso. The Bomber was rich and deep in taste with hints of chocolate, leather, and pine. It was intense, delightful and just the kick I needed. I don’t often want to drink a straight black coffee without some sugar in it or a cookie on the side, or take down a straight shot of espresso without a bit of soda water to back it. But I really didn’t need the extras since the taste was so pure and clean. Jade and I always order a latte when first visiting a new coffee place, and this was no exception. The latte they served us was smooth, the espresso shot that accompanied the steamed milk was a medium roast with hints of  honey, bourbon and apple. Sisters Coffee Company is one we will be back to again…

    Every time Sisters Coffee in the Pearl is written about I swell with pride as my son Clayton Rogers is the General Manager. He had worked for the family during his summer breaks from college in Sisters and was hand picked by them for the Pearl location before college graduation. He loves people and it is reflected in the way he cares for his staff and every person that comes through the door. Ask to meet him next time you’re in. You’ll see why they say he is the face of Sisters Coffee/The Pearl.
    Proud Parents.
