Born from passion, Portola Coffee Lab is the brainchild of owner and roastmaster Jeff Duggan and his wife Christa. A propeller-head rooted in science and technology, Jeff’s approach to roasting and brewing is focused on quality – uncompromising quality. But the story begins long before the beans find their way into our roaster. The coffee bean is our raw ingredient and an exceptional cup of coffee demands exceptional beans. So, Jeff journeys to the far stretches of Africa, South America and Central America every year in search of this mysterious and elusive marvel of nature. Our unyielding quest leads us to the most dedicated farmers on earth. We don’t just buy coffee direct from these farms and cooperatives – we build relationships that transcend far beyond the cup of coffee at the end of this journey.
