the Public Domain coffee shop in downtown Portland is closed for the foreseeable future.

We’re grateful for the folks who’ve continued to stop in and keep our small coffee shop on its feet. And, we will be back.

Every bean has a story.

It all starts at a coffee farm, perhaps located on the side of a steep mountain accessible only by foot. The coffee trees are tended to by generations from the same family, hand-picking cherries one season at a time, and sending them down by mule to the processing co-op where the cherry is dried out in the sun and the bean removed. From there it travels by ship in burlap bags to arrive at our roastery in Portland where we cup, scrutinize, and craft-roast with care. Allow us to introduce you to exquisite coffees from around the world.

Every bag delivers hope.

Drink up and give back. You make a difference each time you prepare a cup of Public Domain coffee. For every bag of coffee you purchase, Public Domain will make a donation to Water.org, an international nonprofit organization that continues to positively transform millions of lives around the world with access to safe water and sanitation.

Every day begins with coffee.

It’s been an unimaginable year, especially for everyone in our home town and heart center, Portland. Through it all, we’ve been so grateful for the folks who’ve continued to stop in and keep our small coffee shop on its feet. 

It’s with much careful consideration and best hopes for the future that we have decided to temporarily close the Public Domain Coffee Shop for the foreseeable future. We, at Public Domain, want to really think through the best way to be here for all of you—for the next few months, and as a wellspring of community and coffee love for years to come.

 We will re-open. That we believe. And we will continue to source exceptional beans, roasting and shipping them from Portland.
