Hi! Thx I’ve found this thread before starting my old idea. As an old-school brewer and latte fan, I’ve been wanting to open a little coffee shop. Also purchased some additional latte stuff – Nespresso machines, new grinder etc. I never thought about it from the standpoint of the law, so I’m going to get to know everything, and I’m going to write…[Read more]
I’d recommend checking with your local ag dept. Because it’s generally low-risk, sometimes there are special rules that allow someone to sell home-brewed coffee, or even coffee that’s brewed on-site (like at a market).

Michael, thanks so much for letting me know. I figured out the problem, but it’s not fixed yet. Thanks for taking the time to explain the updates for Oregon’s domestic kitchen law. Sometimes this happens, where there is a difference between the law and what the health dept actually allows. I will update that page.
