Coffee made with heart and served with a smile
Founder Melanie Ward
November 20, 1991 – March 4, 2022
To know her was to love her. A daughter, granddaughter, sister, wife, a loving mother, a best friend. Melanie was a bright light in this world.
Born in Portland, Oregon, Melanie attended Walt Morey Middle School in Troutdale, and in 2010 graduated from Reynolds High School. While earning her business degree from Warner Pacific University, Mel pursued a career in coffee.
In 2013 Mel purchased her first espresso stand in Boring, OR, and for the next several years would dedicate her life to growing that business into a thriving multi-stand company.
As of today, Country Coffee has multiple drive-thru locations, a sit & sip restaurant, mobile coffee carts, a roasting room, and so much more to come -- projects, plans and a legacy that will be carried on by Mel's family and the Country Coffee team.
