Boyd Coffee – Why Work For Us?


Boyd’s Coffee® believes that everyone deserves a thoughtfully sourced, skillfully roasted and properly brewed cup of coffee. At Boyd’s, we don’t believe that coffee bestows status or makes a statement about the person who drinks it. We believe that people are capable of making their own statements. We hold that coffee is fuel, not fashion. It is what it has always been: a reward for good work, done well; and a kick in the pants to get back out there and do some more. That’s the legacy of coffee in America and that’s the Boyd’s legacy, as well.

Boyd’s is one of the oldest family-owned coffee companies in the world. Established in 1900 in Portland, Oregon, Boyd’s has a long, storied history of providing customers with consistently excellent coffee, tea, hot and cold beverages, and equipment. Innovation is in our DNA: we were one of the first companies to deliver coffee and the first in the industry to outfit its customers with brewing equipment. We don’t like to toot our own horn, but we were also the first American coffee roaster to import Rainforest Alliance Certified™ coffee and the first coffee roaster to be Certified Organic in North America. We didn’t achieve these firsts because we wanted to show off, but because we knew our customers deserved the level of quality inherent in these innovations.

Our customers today want the same thing that our founder P.D. Boyd’s customers wanted when he started to deliver coffee to the Portland community in his red delivery wagon back in 1900: “The good things of life belong to everyone as a birthright, not just to an aristocracy or even a meritocracy.”

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Boyd Coffee (Portland, OR) in August 2016.


    Phone interview and in-person Interview

    The in-person interview went very well. They said they would call me with "next steps".

    However, they never called me back to give me an update. I called them and they said that nothing was decided. After that they never called me back at all. It was very rude.
