Oregon is a place where one can be free…
We'd like to commemorate a time when traveling was about the journey, more welcoming. We'd like to conjure the feelings of adventure. When you're at Fairlane, you are reminded that all of Oregon is at your fingertips form the coast and the gorge to the high dessert and Crater Lake. Just like a Ford Fairlane, we strive to drive quality, classiness, and integrity in all that we do.
Forged from the DNA and principals of Tom Erickson, the founder of Animal Traffic and The Annex Boots and Shoes, Fairlane Coffee was born with the love of American history, classic cars, vintage clothing and modern goods made in the heritage spirit. Sellwood is a classic blue collar neighborhood and though it’s going through its modern changes we’re keeping a little of the old spirit alive. Locally roasted fair trade coffee, locally baked goods like grandma used to make and classic cars from an era when American workers were making the coolest cars ever.
Fairlane Coffee LLC seeks to be a destination coffee shop, as well as to serve the Sellwood- Moreland and surrounding neighborhoods in offering exceptional coffee and pastries while providing consistent positive customer service, all in a comfortable space. Ultimately, the cafe will serve as place where the staff is able to highlight various organizations, via the consumer's coffee, that elevate the environment, people, or other issues important to our world.
