Here’s to 20, Stumptown

Stumptown Coffee is 20 years today. On that day, our Creative Director Raymond was there as Employee #1. And, when he was ready to go out on his own and start Needmore, Stumptown gave us our start by becoming Client #1. We’ll always love them for that. Here are a few photos from 2001, when café #2 opened on Belmont. You’re going to recognize some of these lovely mugs.
