Dog-loving coffee nerds rejoice! Fetch Coffee Roasters gets you. Fetch is owned by people who love and know coffee—and dogs. “Few things are better than that first sip of coffee in the morning,”  their website states. “And with your dog snuggled by your side, you have the perfect start to your day.”

Based in Oregon, Fetch Coffee Roasters aims to make people happier one sip at a time by only using carefully selected specialty beans. They also aim to help dogs in need with $1 of every purchase being divided equally between two global rescue organizations: The Oregon Humane Society, and the Soi Dog Foundation, a Thailand-based non-profit helping street dogs.

And that’s not all—Fetch Coffee Roasters, itself a woman-run company helmed by owner and head roaster Sarah Witter, also participates in the Café Feminino program, an independent nonprofit organization which provides funding and grants to women producing coffee in poverty-stricken areas around the world.  

Their coffee is fair trade (Morning Run is organic!) and ethically sourced from Guatemala, Sumatra, Ethiopia, and Peru. You can get your hands on some aptly-named beans like “Belly Rub” coffee and even “Squirrel!!” espresso to brew at home. If you’re not sure where to start, they have a “choose your coffee” page that helpfully outlines the tasting notes of each bean. Prefer a smooth and robust flavor? Try Morning Run. For those preferring fruitier and lighter tasting notes, Tail Chaser may be the best choice.

Aiming to make your coffee experience effortless and memorable, start to finish, their site includes brewing guidelines from grind size to timing, a cold brew guide, and their shopping information includes the coffee’s origin, roast, body, acidity, growing altitude, and process. All of these make a difference in how the coffee tastes. Most beans–with the exception of espresso—can be purchased whole or pre-ground for convenience. Those who want their caffeine buzz on the go can scoop up a branded stainless steel and bamboo travel mug or tumbler to show off on dog walks—all with the bonus of knowing that a portion of your purchase goes to helping pups in need. Find Fetch coffee at multiple locations around the Portland Metro area, or order online at

Coffee With A Cause
Fetch Coffee Roasters supports these two amazing charities

The Oregon Humane Society, founded in 1868, remains one of the oldest humane societies in the U.S. They enforce no time limit on shelter stays and adopt out thousands of animals per year. They also provide quality medical care for strays. Their operation relies completely on the generosity of their supporters.

Based in Phuket, Thailand, the Soi Dog Foundation helps street dogs and cats who have been abandoned and abused. Part of their mission involves spaying and neutering stray dogs, conducting mobile clinics around the Bangkok area, vaccinating, and providing veterinary care with over a dozen full-time veterinarians.
