Mizuba Tea

Mizuba Tea Co. – Portland

Charmed by the peaceful tea fields of Uji, Japan, Lauren Purvis made it her mission to share her fondness for matcha tea with her own Portland community, through the meaningful connections she’s made overseas. Blessed to travel to many places throughout her life, tea was a constant that Lauren consumed and collected information about everywhere she went, starting in middle school. Today, she owns and operates Mizuba Tea Co. and works closely with small, family-run farms in Uji, Japan, to produce six grades of 100% authentic, shade-grown, stone-ground matcha. Lauren’s company also produces Japanese heritage loose-leaf teas, rarely found outside of Japan and carefully chosen from select farmers and producers. For more than 800 years, matcha is the only tea to have been used in the Japanese tea ceremony. Lauren honors and values matcha to bring people together and start conversations. Antioxidant-rich and easy to prepare, matcha contains nutrients from the entire tea leaf. Discover the magic of Mizuba Tea Co.’s versatile matcha teas, which also make a great ingredient for baking!

Spella Caffe

Spella Caffè – Portland

Coffee is what you put into it. For Andrea Spella, it’s heart and soul. Raised above his family’s Chicago bakery, Andrea began drinking espresso when he was old enough to raise a cup to his lips. As the owner of Spella Caffè in Portland, he develops deep relationships with coffee growers and roasts the beans himself, always aiming for the “sweet spot.” His beans boast a balance of sweet and bitter for a truly fantastic cup. You’ll find freshly roasted Spella beans in our Market Coffee Departments. Spella Caffè coffee and espresso drinks are also proudly served by our Portland-area Market Baristas.

Coffee Market Overview

Coffee

We take coffee seriously. When deciding whether to carry a particular coffee, we research the roaster’s sourcing practices, the quality of the beans, the roast profile and how the coffee cups.

We focus on local roasters, and closely monitor best-by dates to ensure our coffee is always fresh. When you need to grind, you can depend on our high-quality, in-store grinders to do the job while protecting the integrity of the beans.

Additionally, our Beverage Stewards receive ongoing training and cuppings, so they can help you choose the right roast. Stop by and check out our selection of locally sourced and single-origin coffees.

Tea

From loose leaf, bagged, and chai concentrates, to matcha powders, mushroom teas, yerba mate, and hand crafted local options, we have more choices in tea than most any grocer in town. And, we’re always leaning in to learn more about tea trends from those who truly know their stuff.

You see, tea and coffee are like wine in that the variety, terroir and farming practices greatly impact the flavor. That’s why we pay attention to how our tea is sourced, and focus on local makers that we know and trust.

Take a trip down our grocery aisle and find the right variety for you. Or, stop by our Barista to find a great selection of high quality teas steeped fresh, and ready for sipping on-the-go.
