About Us

We are Coffee Bean International™ a visionary coffee company from the heart of the Pacific Northwest. Experienced. Trusted. Respected from coast to coast. We are passionate — fanatical, you could even say — about the coffee we roast and the service we deliver. From the farms to the roaster to the retailer to the cup, we strive for perfection every step of the way. Big enough to support your growth, small enough to give you the attention you deserve, we are your ideal partner. We’ll help you become a coffee destination.


Founded in 1972 as a tiny storefront operation, we are now one of the biggest and most respected specialty coffee roasters in the nation. But no matter how big we grow, we’ll never forget our roots. It is the one-on-one relationships with the people who buy, sell, and drink our coffee that matter most.


We love where we work and we want to help keep the environment and our community healthy. That’s why an integral part of our process incorporates sustainability. Our plant is LEED® Silver Certified, and all of our coffee is roasted using 100% renewable energy credits.

And, of course, you can’t live in the Pac Northwest without recognizing those employees who choose to bicycle to work. Our employees also contribute to our sustainability program by submitting suggestions about ways we can recycle or re-use our coffee bags, pallets and other supplies. They want to be part of the solution, and we support those efforts!


Yes, we are a passionate company; about our sustainability and about our coffee. From the farms to the roaster, from the retailer to the cup, we strive for perfection every step of the way.
