Just like you, we are locally based here in Portland, Oregon and love good food and drink. We love being part of the friendly NW Community, surrounded by all the amazing chefs and delicious food offerings. For the past 19 years, our goal has been to couple with all of these wonderful palates and to offer authentic Italian style roasts, blends, and preparation with authentic Italian espresso training.

Responsible Supply Chain Process
In March 2011, illycaffè became the world’s first company to receive the Det Norske Veritas (DNV) Responsible Supply Chain Process certification, attesting to the company’s long-running sustainable approach to production and its relations with stakeholders throughout the production chain, particularly with green coffee suppliers.
The illycaffè model is innovative in assigning critical roles to quality and value creation. The certification was officially conferred at illycaffè’s twentieth annual meeting in Brazil, recognizing suppliers for coffee production meeting the company’s industry-leading quality standards.
Sapori is thrilled to support the community in any way possible. Through both monetary and in-kind donations, Sapori supports local charities. Read more.
By committing to authentic Italian espresso parameters of only using seven grams of grounds per shot and extracting the full flavors out of those beans, we typically use 50 - 100% less coffee than average roasters to produce the same amount of coffee. Keeping in mind that the average coffee tree only produces about one pound of roasted coffee per year, the authentic Italian method assures lower environmental impact – 50 - 100% less land, water, fertilizer, and manpower – to deliver the perfect morning latte.
As no coffee is locally grown in the Pacific Northwest, having the most efficient coffee available is crucial to sustainability.
