About The People
People in all shapes and sizes, of all ages and from many places come to the River Roasters to sit by the fire, visit with friends, relax, and treat themselves to a cup of their favorite - coffee, tea, hot chocolate, smoothies, lattes and all the other treats you would hope to find at your favorite coffee shop. Many locals come daily and visitors from out of town make it a point to stop in.
Here's a note from one of our customers about our coffee (published by permission):
To the owner,
I live in Seattle but recently visited Siuslaw Coffee on a warm summer morning. I sat on the back deck after being served a great cup of coffee by friendly staff. By the time I left I had spent nearly two hours at your shop appreciating the place and the scenery while having five different cups of your coffee.
Coming from a city that is a bit arrogant about it's coffee and where the ubiquity of the shops makes the atmosphere of the pour something far from memorable I was refreshed by the wonderful environment and superb site-roasted coffee. Hear, hear. I'm not sure what your background is but I do know that it takes guts to be an entrepreneur or to start any small business - congratulations on taking a risk and having the vision to build what you have in Siuslaw Coffee.
You've created a great shop that serves great coffee -and obviously customers depart with a memorable experience as I can't recall the last time I sought out the owners of a business simply to offer my compliments. You are not Starbucks and that is a great thing.
We think that our customers are special.
We're glad you stopped by!
