Lone Pine Coffee Roasters

Featured in October 2012 Box

Scott Witham got his first taste of the roasting business at Seattle’s Torrefazione Italia. When Starbucks acquired Torrefazione in 2003 and offered Scott a roasting job, he had a better idea. He and his wife packed up and moved back home to central Oregon, where they started their very own roasting company; Lone Pine Coffee Roasters. With this Ethiopian brew, you’ll feel as though you are travelling around the world with every sip. Rose and lemongrass aromatics soar over a sweet lychee and white peach acidity, with a honey and assam tea base rounding out this delicate, clean and well-balanced coffee.

We feature truly small-batch, seasonal coffees. So there might not be any left. But that's a good thing! Only big corporate factories have the same stuff all year round.

Nestled discreetly in a quiet alley in Bend, Oregon, sits the small and unassuming Lone Pine Coffee Roasters. The cafe, run by husband and wife duo, Scott and Anna Witham, meticulously selects, roasts, and packages all of their own coffees. This Bourbon variety, from the Cocatu Co-op in Tumba, Rwanda, was roasted gently at a soft heat to coax out as much depth as possible. The result is a flavor that develops as the coffee cools. Round cherry and red apple acidity complement dulce de leche sweetness in this soft, silky cup. A clean, wonderfully complex finish encompasses caramel, spices, tobacco and lingering floral notes.
