About McMenamins Coffee Roasters

Roasting beans from small-farm growers

Passport Tours:
Monday through Wednesday, 2 p.m. 'til 4 p.m.

McMenamins approaches specialty coffee roasting with the same passion for attention to detail that we apply to our ales, wines and spirits. Our roast masters use only beans from the highest-quality coffea arabica species – plants that produce coffees of elegant, complex flavors. This is why McMenamins coffee beans come from small-farm growers producing shade-grown plants of the highest caliber; it’s the first step toward insuring the finest possible cup o‘ joe.

At McMenamins Coffee Roasters, our varietal and blended coffees are roasted in a state-of-the-art German-made Probat drum roaster, said to be the finest brand in the industry. Drum roasting allows the deep aroma and flavor of the smoke to permeate each bean.

Although we roast upwards of 40,000 pounds of beans a year, the roasting is done in small batches, one at a time. McMenamins coffees are roasted to order for our pubs, restaurants and hotels on a weekly basis to ensure freshness.

High quality, aroma-roasted coffees from McMenamins Coffee Roasters are available for enjoyment and purchase in all of our locations. You can purchase our coffees in our gift shops or at our online store.

McMenamins Blends

As a member of the Specialty Coffee Association of America, our craft roasting facility chooses high-quality beans. Specialty coffees are cupped and stored on a grading system similar to wine. Any coffee that scores less than 80 points is not considered a specialty coffee.

In addition to being a specialty coffee roaster, McMenamins Coffee Roasters is also a small-batch roaster dedicated to serving the best coffee as fresh as possible. We receive orders from our pubs on a weekly basis, roast the coffee the next day and ship it to all McMenamins locations. Roasting in small batches allows us to give our full attention to the bean and provide our patrons with the best quality product.

Our houseroasted coffees are served at all McMenamins locations and are available for purchase at our Coffee Roaster or online.

Our current blends:

All of our beans are given special attention by roasting each variety seperately before blending. For a top-quality brew, keep your coffee in a cool, dry cupboard away from heat, moisture and sunlight.

McMenamins Coffee Blend Offerings







 


FLORES ORGANIC BAJAWA (Rainforest alliance)
Country of Origin: Flores Island, Indonesia
The Roastery is pleased to offer coffee from the Island of Flores, which lies in the Indonesian archipelago, sandwiched between Sumbawa and Timor Islands. Flores (Flower Island) is pocked with inactive volcanic peaks; the island is long and thin, and the terrain is most diverse. Flores Bajawa coffee hails from a co-op of seven farming groups that span across an area of 15,000 acres. The altitude of these farms range between 3,900-5,200 ft. The flavor profile: thick body, low acidity, syrupy sweetness - bold intensity.

Flores Bajawa is included in our HouseMorning and Rabbit blends.

EL SALVADORAN (Finca Las Isabellas)
Country of origin: El Salvador

Santa Leticia Estate farm is located in the southwestern corner of the country and sits at an altitude of 5,200 ft. The high elevation and the natural canopy of the surrounding forest contribute to the superior quality of the coffee. Diurnal temperatures (variation in temperature) at high altitudes produce wide variations of sugar that later translate to greater flavor. The flavor profile: Fragrant with a full body and bold chocolate. The finish is clean with a subtle hint of cinnamon and berries. McMenamins bought this estate coffee directly from the farm. This purchase continues our commitment to quality as well as fair trade practices. Santa Leticia is offered as a stand-alone origin, and is included in our House and Morning blends.

BRASIL CERRADO 
Country of Origin: Brazil

This mild coffee hails from the state of Minas Gerais that is located in Cerrado, which is a vast tropical savannah that spans much of central Brazil and sits at an elevation of 2,600 ft. Coffee growing from this region is grown and harvested at the macro level, and all of it is mechanically harvested. Our current Brazil is slightly nutty with solid chocolate, and serves well as a single offering. Brazil's are generally used in blends, and we include the Cerrado in our Black Rabbit French Roast and our Espresso blend.
Roast: city. 

ETHIOPIAN NATURAL SIDAMO
Country of Origin: Ethiopia

Our Ethiopian natural is a dry-processed coffee. Coffee cherries are harvested and laid out on patios to dry with the fruit left on the seed. The result is a coffee rich in fruit and complexity. Most coffees grown in the province of Sidamo are known for their bright acidity and citrus-like quality. Ethiopia is the birthplace of coffee, and the agricultural methods practiced in producing coffee from this region have been employed for several centuries. In order to draw out the fruit and brightness, we roast this at city. Ethiopian coffees make up one third of our Morning blend, and are offered throughout the company as stand-alone single origins.

ROYAL SELECT WATER PROCESSED DECAF (COLOMBIA)
We pride ourselves at McMenamins for maintaining high standards when it comes to decaf coffee. The process of decaffeination can be harsh and sometimes toxic. Most cheap decaf coffees are chemically altered with the use of ethyl acetate. McMenamins Coffee Roasters always purchases water-processed decaf, which is full-bodied and flavorful. In short, water-processed decaf coffee is soaked in tanks, and the caffeine is gradually extracted through the use of high-temperature water. Coffee flavor solids and caffeine pass through a carbon filter. The caffeine is then separated from the solids, and discarded.
