Columbia River Coffee Roasters' Company Store is now open at the site of Uniontown's newly remodeled Finnish Meat Market building (most recently the home to Shanghaied in Astoria)!

At first, I was so dazzled by the fresh paint and windows that I almost forgot to step inside the new Company Store opened by Columbia River Coffee Roaster owners Tim Hurd and Nancy Montgomery:

The smell is amazing.

On this wall is a veritable historic archive...

Can't leave without some of this:

A shipwreck chart by NW Limited...History in Vogue adds to the welcoming interior. Locally-oriented art and decor really make this space feel like the vital part of this community that it is.

Just one more reason to love Columbia River Coffee Roaster:

"We also believe strongly in the notion that one's work should build one's community, so we put a high percentage of our profits into the local arts scene, specifically The River Theater in Astoria, a vibrant venue for diverse performing arts."

Now you know where to go to get GREAT coffee:

Best wishes, Tim and Nancy! Your success is our success!
