Stumptown Coffee, a popular Portland, Ore. coffee roasting company, has recently acquired a space in the “Napa Valley of Coffee in LA.”
The roasters recently purchased a space in the Los Angeles Arts District that will join its small chain of stores in New York City, Portland, and Seattle. The space is a “nifty white brick building” with large windows that look out onto Sante Fe and 7th Place, according to Eater.
While the company has acquired the spot, it's still in the early planning stages, according to Eater; construction is still occurring in the building. But, the company is already starting to build up an L.A. staff, listing jobs for everything from baristas to head roasters.
The space is a perfect fit for the company, said Tyler Stonebreaker, "real estate mogul to the coffee stars," in an interview with on Sprudge. The Arts District is like the “Napa Valley” of coffee in LA, thanks to lots of space, great zoning conditions, old buildings with signature architecture and a supportive community, according to Eater.
