Whidbey Coffee was created by entrepreneur Don Ollis who started off his coffee career by purchasing an espresso cart and spent his summer attending local fairs to sell his premium coffee. This sparked his interest in specialty coffee which is now Whidbey Coffee. Ollis' coffee is loved by his customers who have named it "Best Coffee On Whidbey Island" which has now transpired to 12 retail locations, with their headquarters based in Mukilteo. Whidbey Coffee supports their community and those who reside there, by matching donations for Oso, WA #530slide relief and raised almost $7,000 for Cascade Valley Hospital and Clinic, even making special donations for one lucky high schooler to receive a $5,000 scholarship to a community college of their choice. Needless to say, Whidbey Coffee cares about the coffee they roast and the town that started it all.

Stumptown Coffee is passionate about their products, from scent to production every detail is closely tailored to create the perfect batch of coffee. Their attention to detail is impeccable, each bean is carefully inspected on a personal level, temperatures increase then decrease the day knowing that the roaster will be hot and some time can be shaved off. Each batch is roasted just enough to reveal all the hidden notes of floral, molasses, chocolate, and earth. The beans they use? Carefully chosen from across mountains, through forests, to farms. They don't just buy bulk coffee, they go to the source and pick up the best ones from the atop a distant Ethiopian Hill, finding the authenticity behind each bean.

Dillanos Coffee Roasters
When Victrola opened in 2000, the little 15th Avenue neighborhood on Capitol Hill in Seattle Washington had a big need. The community not only lacked great coffee it also had few great spaces to hang out or to meet friends. The cafe was so popular after only a year they doubled their space, taking over the storefront next door. In 2003, Victrola took a huge step and began roasting their own coffee in the tiny back room of their café on 15th. In the cramped back room, they spent countless hours experimenting with roast profiles and blends for their espresso. Early on, Victrola was committed to the task of sourcing, roasting, and preparing the finest coffees available. Since then, innovation has marked their roasting operations and coffee preparation.
