Portland, Oregon, in the United States, is known for having an established coffee culture. In February 2012, The New York Times reported that Portland had more than 30 coffee roasters. Comparing Portland's coffee culture to other major cities along the West Coast, Oliver Strand wrote: "Seattle coffee might have more muscle, and San Francisco coffee might have more mystique, but Portland’s coffee scene is arguably the country's most intimate. It's also one of the most relaxed."


Some of Portland's roasters include Coava Coffee Roasters, Heart Coffee Roasters, Sterling Coffee Roasters and Stumptown Coffee Roasters.


In 2012, the Specialty Coffee Association of America hosted its annual convention, billed as "the largest coffee industry gathering in the world", at the Oregon Convention Center.
