Aspect Collective began in the sawdust-y brain of Trevin Miller, a native Oregonian with a dedication to the DIY lifestyle. As the owner of Mr. Green Beans, a toy store for home coffee roasters, he saw the difficulty new (and wanna-be) coffee roasters faced: green coffee, a roaster, and a commercial space take money. Lots of it. And thus, four years ago in SE Portland, with a Probat L12 and more than usual elbow grease, was born Aspect Collective. First conceived as a cooperative and then, as more and more roasters joined, shifted to a new business model, Aspect Collective functions as an incubator for some of the finest roasters, large and small, to emerge in Portland’s new wave of coffee. The Collective is growing; new roasters join and new partnerships are forged. Aspect Collective serves as a home base for multiple small importers as well. Interested? Join us. The roasting revolution is just getting started.
