The Public Domain Story

For something that a lot of people drink a lot of, coffee should be an experience—not just a routine. An opportunity to discover and to be surprised. An open exchange of insights. A shift in your perspective. This is Public Domain. Exceptional coffees. Expertly grown. Carefully harvested. Seasonal and fresh. Skillfully roasted. Cupped and scrutinized. Artfully prepared. For you to savor, experiment with, explore and enjoy. We believe that truly great coffee shouldn’t just be for the chosen, but should be a choice for all. Great coffee is Public Domain.

Public Domain is the vision and creative expression of Coffee Bean International, Oregon’s original specialty coffee roaster. The company was founded in 1972 on a clear mission: To craft-roast exceptional coffees, and to cultivate coffee passion among the public. Though successful on this mission over the years, the company’s unique story has never been widely told. Chalk it up to being a wholesaler – always behind the scenes. Now nearly forty years later, we are putting our own signature on coffee that is uniquely ours—hand crafted, specialty coffees prepared and shared directly with the public.
