We opened our doors in 2009 with one mission: to give Portland (Maine!) a coffee experience they hadn't had before. Great coffee is most often grown by incredible people in incredible places. These people and places leave their indelible mark on the coffee making each as unique as a snowflake. At Bard it is our mission to tell the stories of these people, places and coffees in every cup we serve as though we are fulfilling a promise. We do this by carefully sourcing, roasting and preparing our coffees using only the very best practices in order to bring out and share the most wonderful attributes each has to offer. More simply put, our goal is to provide each of our customers with an extraordinary total coffee experience - delicious drinks served by friendly and knowledgeable baristas. Please visit us at our shop in Portland, Maine's historic Old Port and let us share these stories with you.
