Her Story

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 and we are lost without her.


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, and purchased her first espresso stand in Boring, Oregon in 2013.


Country Coffee was a small business at that time, so for the next several years Mel dedicated her life to transforming that single stand into a thriving and successful company.


As of today, Country Coffee has 9 drive-thru locations, a sit & sip restaurant, a mobile event trailer, a roasting room, franchises, 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.
