JIM & PATTY'S COFFEE PEOPLE
Jim and Patty Roberts have been making great coffee and pastries since 1974 when they set up their coleman stove at Eugene's Saturday market to try to work their way through school. By night they made baklava, by day they made great coffee. School finally came to an end. Then came the long years of creating and running a couple of Portland's most beloved coffeehouses..First there was Coffee Man, then in 1983 they founded Coffee People. In 1998 they left Coffee People to pursue new adventures. (Jim and Patty’s Coffee People™ is not affiliated with Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc.Corporation.)
What a long strange trip it's been, but now the coffee and pastries are better than ever...Maybe practice does make perfect! Sons Patrick and Saul and daughter Myra join them to continue a family tradition.
Our family hosts friends and neighbors each day from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m, except Sunday when we open at 7 a.m. We bake your favorite cookies, cakes and snacks, you eat them, we make your favorite coffee drinks, you drink them, and together we wash it all down with laughter, conversation, love, arguments, tea, coffee, and maybe just the fun of being together for a little while.
Jim and Patty may bethe oldest baristas in town but they are ably assisted by attractive young people who know what they're doing.....and we still treasure, preserve, and produce Portland's most delightful recipes for great coffee drinks, such as the fresh orange Mocha Borgia, the delightfully "arch" Adult Mocha, the sophisticated yet sensuous, "Soviet Mocha", a drink "only a moron would reject" the spicy yet delicate, "Habanero Mocha" (packed with vitamin C), our own beloved Caramel Fudge mocha flooded with richy buttery caramel, and the nutty but nice Peanut Butter Fudge Mocha.
