Junior’s Roasted Coffee is a micro-roastery based out of Portland, Oregon, founded and owned by Caryn and Mike Nelson. They started Junior’s in Florida after moving there for graduate school in October 2014. The Nelsons were eager to plant roots in their new home and serve a role in their community by sharing their love and craft of quality coffee. They’ve since relocated back to their “adopted” home of Portland, Oregon where, along with business partners Carrie Lind and Toby Roberts, they opened a cafe named Guilder in the Alameda-Irvington neighborhood. The roastery opened inside the cafe in the fall of 2017. Junior’s is committed to sustainable, fair trade practices, as evidenced by their new “Cost of Production” series, where they highlight the actual prices they pay to their coffee growers.
