Founded in 1989 in a small wood cabin, Winfield and Joy started roasting in 5lb batches and were the first roasters to the Central Oregon area. The business quickly grew and they bought a larger roaster within 6 months. For the first 20 years, our business was predominantly wholesale, since the retail space in the cabin was only 250 square feet. Today, we are roasting 235,000 pounds a year, and have a 6,000 square foot flagship cafe and roastery in Sisters, along with a cafe in the Pearl District in Portland. The business is run by Winfield and Joy’s kids: Justin, Jared, and Jesse.
Our mission is to create an authentic coffee experience built on a deep love for our craft and heartfelt kindness for the people we serve.
Winfield Durham started Sisters Coffee in 1989 and from the outset he sourced fantastic coffees from all over the world. Before direct trade was an industry standard he had started a relationship with Aurelio Villatoro in Guatemala, offering his coffee as a single origin. We continue to honor Winfield’s legacy, producing time proven consistent blends while ever seeking to expand our single origin offerings. We endeavor toward meaningful relationships that stand the test of time. By offering coffees of the highest quality from around the world we strive to make a positive impact throughout our entire supply chain from rural coffee farming communities to our own community in Sisters, Oregon.
