who is terreno?
Terreno coffee is co-owned by Jeremy dickerson and Ron besser and sources, blends and roasts custom coffees for cafes and restauraunts.
first and foremost jeremy and ron are fathers. they met while being stay at home dads in portland, oregon and became friends through trips with their kids to the zoo, parks and coffee shops. that friendship grew through their love of mountain biking. both now have two kiddos and although ron lives in Breckenridge, colorado and jeremy still lives in portland, the two hang out about once a month to bike and talk about their kids.
other than talking about their families and the next place they plan on biking, they talk about coffee. particularly roasting coffee that is special. how do they think coffee can be special? well, it starts with the grower, continues through the roasting and ends with the consumer.
Jeremy has made it a point to foster relationships with the importers and growers that he buys from in order to form not just a business relationship with them, but also a personal one. this accomplishes two things: first, we gain a friend from a different culture that helps us better understand the world that we live in. a friend that we can invest in and see succeed in their business. Second, it allows us to get the best coffee possible as the grower selects their highest quality beans for us to roast. we are also seasonal in our bean selection as different VARIETIES taste better within different seasons and from different geographical locations.
