About Coffee By Design
In 1994 Coffee By Design opened a coffeehouse in Portland, Maine. When they opened their first shop on Congress Street, in what is now known as the Art District, the vacancy rate in downtown Portland was 40%. What started as a humble coffeehouse with a part-time barista, has grown into a sustainable business that currently employs 52 individuals in its six coffeehouses, 1 artisan specialty coffee roastery, nearly 400 wholesale and mail order customers nationwide, 35 coffees and blends from 17 countries. They believe that being selective is better, and therefore only choose to work with businesses who share the same standards and beliefs in environmental and economic sustainability. Its growth is attributed to their fantastic employees, exceptional coffee, and strong underlying belief that what they do can make a difference.
