Product Offerings

We take great pride in providing each customer an experience that echoes are dedication to excellence. We believe in community. We believe in quality. We believe in giving back. You'll find that every aspect of Bison Coffeehouse, from our product offerings to the art work on the walls, is an extension of our values and principles:

Native Roasters

With the intention of creating a platform for Native roasters that they would not otherwise have here in Portland, OR, Bison Coffeehouse is also supporting local economies and fostering growth in the Native community. Life on the reservation is hard, and each roaster takes deep pride in the roast they create, bringing the best roast they can to market because it's often their only source of income, and one that must sustain the entire family. This breeds a standard of excellence that is evident in each and every cup. Every safeguard is taken to insure that the money goes directly back to the roasters. Bison Coffeehouse is deeply committed to giving back to the Native community.

Quality & Curation

Every vendor's product is carefully evaluated for their standard of quality and commitment to excellence.  Bison Coffeehouse works directly with many of its roasters in shaping the taste of the coffee and getting the roast just right. These are small farms that produce organic beans, and Native roasters don’t outsource their roasting. 

Timely delivery is carefully intentional to insure freshness. Every detail is lovingly considered to ensure top-notch quality. 


Bison Coffeehouse makes every effort to implement eco-friendly, sustainable products into the experience. In an effort to disengage from using plastic in every way, we're always looking for opportunities to integrate compostable, bio-degradable products.  We are moving towards using glass for beverage bottles. We compost our coffee grounds to local neighbors.  We are committed to sustainability and eco-stewardship.

Capitola Coffee

We source coffees for sale in our cafe, neighborhood cafes, bakeries, offices, restaurants, and anyone who enjoys good coffee. We believe the best part of making coffee is sharing it. With that in mind we try to make sure our producer/farmers are always fairly compensated, and that our customers receive a great product with great service.

All Day Coffee

All Day Coffee uses the highest quality CBD infused beans to create a delicious Cold Brew you can drink all day. It tastes great and provides the ultimate energy boost. The unique combination of caffeine and CBD delivers lasting energy for a calm focused mind with no jitters and no anxiety. Choose Full Caf or Half Caf based on your preference for caffeine and the time of day. Later in the day or evening choose No Caf for relaxation and full-on chill. 

Chai Tea

Tanglewood Beverage Company

What started as a desire to make the perfect Ginger Spiced Chai, both spicy and aromatic with a deep caramelized sweetness, became an obsession to create other beverages that embody the spirit of Portland’s rich culinary scene.

Today Tanglewood’s team of brewers make one of a kind beverages like the bourbon infused Hot Buttered Yam and the lightly floral Turmeric Thai Tea for home consumption and for cafes all over the country & beyond


Soma Kombucha

SOMA has billions more probiotics than any other kombucha or jun, is naturally carbonated and naturally sweet. A lush forest provides the Earth with more oxygen, nutrients, and soil micro-organisms than a single tree, and SOMA gives your body more of the good stuff you drink kombucha for.

Lionheart Dry Kombucha

These days it’s hard to tell what you’re getting when you buy Kombucha.  Will it be too sweet?  Will it be terrible?  Will it explode when I open it?  Lion Heart is 100% traditionally brewed with our mother culture which was brought from Russia in the 1980’s and has never touched non-organic tea.  We have always used quality wine-making equipment, and never stored our brewing Kombucha or SCOBYs in plastic.  Our dedication to quality runs deep.  Our commitment to the health of our community runs even deeper.

Water Kefir

Good Wolf Water Kefir

Water Kefir is a raw, light and living probiotic drink that helps you feed the good inside! We traditionally ferment our non-dairy kefir crystals and flavor with organic ingredients in small batches in Portland, Oregon. Our flavor profiles are well-curated, balanced and approachable for everyday drinking.

Baked Goods

From Bison Coffeehouse's small commercial kitchen, these recipes were crafted with care and passion by owner,  Loretta Guzman.  As a long time enthusiast of the art of baking, Loretta apprenticed under a master baker and eventually went on to  become one herself.  "I find the recipes online,  and through a process of experimentation, refinement, and perfecting, I eventually get to a place where it's locked in." 

In soliciting and listening to customers for  input and suggestions, regulars have played a role in shaping Bison Coffeehouse's offerings. One of the most popular dishes, Bison's signature House Biscuits, which contain no sugar, was a happy accident based on a customer suggestion: Loretta explains "Green Chile Pepper jack bacon biscuits was actually supposed to be a quiche, based on a customer suggestion.  I misunderstood him and thought he meant biscuits. Now it's one of our daily favorites. "

Bowery Bagels

Bowery Bagels are baked by a small team of dedicated professionals and bagel fanatics in Northwest Portland. Founded by a transplanted New Yorker whose goal is to replicate the high quality bagels he grew up enjoying, Bowery Bagels are genuine NY style bagels, which should have a light crunch on the crust, a chewy but not dense interior, and a malty richness.
