Our Story

Elevated Coffee is about community building and delicious local coffee. We are one of two black-owned specialty coffee shops in the Portland Metro Area. Owned by Le King and hubby Chris Guinn III , both are lifelong Portland natives. Chris is a neighborhood/ community resident and entrepreneur. They bought Elevated Coffee in 2017 to establish a gathering place that celebrates the rich culture of Portland’s most historic African American community. And, of course, deliver the highest quality craft coffee.

Elevated Coffee is an excellent place to hold community meetings, admire local artists and be entertained with live poetry and local musicians. To find out more about upcoming events, visit our news page.
