Joel grew up in Hood River, OR. He’s spent the last 15 years working in quick-service restaurants, taking pride in providing great customer service and an unforgettable experience. He’s excited to blend his knowledge in the industry with his love of coffee and serving others. Christine is a Portland native whose love for coffee began at age 5 when she declared "Java Chip" her favorite ice cream flavor. They have two young girls. Georgia Scout (age 3) loves to help her Dad roast coffee at home, while Stella Jane (age 2) appreciates foamy milk lattes in the morning.
Close your eyes and imagine the local cafe you frequent on Saturday morning. You can almost taste the delicious cup of freshly roasted, hand crafted coffee, right? Now open your eyes, because it’s only Tuesday and you’re driving to work.
We believe that a high-quality cup of coffee is possible without getting out of your car. We believe in giving back to the community. Green Bridge Coffee was born by putting those two ideas together.
Our hope is to not only serve outstanding coffee, but to also be a neighbor in our community by supporting local causes with every single purchase.
Our plan is to open more locations in the upcoming years. As this growth happens, we will be joined by our good friends and business partners Darrin and Debbie Lingel. Together, we hope to replicate the spirit of Green Bridge Coffee across multiple stands.
