Dorothea Coffee is a micro-roastery in Seattle dedicated to roasting good coffee. We strive to build strong relationships with our partners and patrons. We proudly source beans from a select few importers that reliably bring in the best coffees the world has to offer, seek out under-appreciated producers and build relationships that strengthen with every season.
Dorothea’s name comes from the city Dorothea in Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities:
“. . . but now I know this path is only one of the many that opened before me on that morning in Dorothea.”

Ashley is the steady hand that keeps Dorothea focused. Foremost an educator and doula, she is intently focused on Dorothea’s place in the community: a space where neighbors come together and strong relationships are built.
