After 22 years of roasting coffee, Sisters Coffee Company co-founders Winfield and Joy Durham opened a new branch in Portland’s Pearl district.

 

When the Durhams opened their first coffee shop in 1984, Winfield was 31 and Joy was 27, and they did all the work themselves. Now he is 58 and she is 54, and Sisters Coffee Company has grown from a mom-and-pop business into a chain of three stores with 50 employees.

“Coffee has proven to be a recession-proof business,” said Joy Durham, adding that the company’s coffee sales continued to grow at a rate of 20 percent a year or more since they moved into their new building in 2005. She said the growth trend has continued even through the recession.
