ABOUT US

Huxdotter Coffee was established in 1990 under the name “Cascade Espresso” as a small espresso cart located outside of what is now Ace Hardware. Shortly after, the business moved across the street to the original drive-thru and walk-up location where our newly constructed flagship cafe is located. The name “Huxdotter Specialty Coffee” was adopted when the original owner began roasting coffee for the drive-thru and other wholesale accounts in the area. The meaning of the word Huxdotter derives from Swedish culture. When a woman married, she took her husbands name, always ending in “son”, hence names like Stevenson or Anderson. An unmarried woman would take her fathers last name would add “dotter” at the end, hence the name Huxdotter which essentially means “daughter of Hux”.
