  12. What’s the inspiration behind the name? Portrait represents a desire to reimagine the picture that comes to mind when [most people] think of speciality coffee. Coffee was first discovered by [Africans] over 1,000 years ago. These trailblazers couldn't have foreseen the global impact of their discovery. On the other hand, they likely never imagined their faces would be forgotten, even though the pigment of the drink reflected their own. [At Portrait, coffee is more than a product: it’s a platform to do good.] We hope to paint a more accurate history. A history that includes those who have been photoshopped out.
