DoubleShot Coffee Co. Celebrates 14 Years

Brian Franklin Roasting

Brian Franklin, owner and roastmaster of the DoubleShot Coffee Company, celebrated14 years of business with a birthday party at its 18th Street and Boston Avenue location March 4. 

Current and future DoubleShot customers and fans were welcomed at the event which featured complimentary coffee, light snacks from the DoubleShot kitchen, craft beer and birthday cake, along with music from violinists Jocelyn Rowland Khalaf and Patricia Davis and cellist Tia Juby.

“I’m proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish in these 14 years, and I’m excited to celebrate with the customers and staff who make it happen every day,” said Franklin. 
 DoubleShot Coffee Company opened in 2004 as a small craft coffee roaster. Over the years, DoubleShot has grown in size and reputation as Franklin has continued to deepen his personal relationships with coffee farmers all over the world, working directly with the growers to bring unique coffees to his customers. DoubleShot sells a wide variety of whole bean coffee, roasted in-house twice-weekly in a vintage Italian coffee roaster, as well as coffee drinks, baked goods and breakfast items, coffee brewing equipment and supplies and DoubleShot-branded merchandise.

Franklin and DoubleShot have been the inspiration for a skit on the comedy television series Portlandia and have been featured in Wine Spectator Magazine, Mark Pendergrast’s Uncommon Grounds:The History of Coffee and How It Transformed Our World and the documentary The Perfect Cappuccino. This summer, DoubleShot will relocate to its new home in a mid-1800s Amish barn, transported from its original location in Berne, Indiana, to where it is currently being reconstructed at 17th Street and Boulder Avenue.
