Our Coffee

Roasted With Care and Skill

Here at The Trough we proudly serve Pacific Green Coffee, which is a small family run business here in the pacific northwest. Only using Organic, Fair Trade, Single Origin beans, they are roasted in small micro batches to ensure precise temperatures that bring out the richness and unique characteristics in each batch of beans. The coffee is then shipped the next day to ensure the freshest beans possible for our customers in both drip coffee and espresso drinks. Our coffee selection includes hot beverages such as our Caramel Machiatto or Iced such as our renowned Frappes. For more information SEE MENU

Our History

Historically, the original dairy, called King’s Dairy, was simply that and only sold raw milk. John King sold it to Dale and Betty Jo Johnson in 1973, who then opened a market which they ran until their retirement in 2009. The market, “Dale’s Dairy,” was a landmark in the area marked by the 15-foot cow on the corner of the property on Clements and North (which remains today), and sold basics that folk might have forgotten to pick up at the grocery store. It was then run as the Target Range Market until April 2014 when the Becks took ownership and transformed it into what it is today, The Olde Dairy. With the community in mind, The Trough, opened it’s doors in June of 2015. We’re here for the neighborhood. We’re thrilled to be here and look forward to meeting the needs of our neighbors!
