Assistant Manager

Hi, I’m Tara. I’ve been a Barista and worked at various cafes for over a decade now. I enjoy the environment and people that a good coffee shop can bring into your life. I’m a super big nerd, who’s obsessed with Bill Murray. I have a huge heart! I love movies, art, photography, gardening, our dog Dexter, and I absolutely love Coffee!!


Social Media | Lead Barista

My name is Johannah. I am an extroverted-homebody. Our home is filled with good coffee, plants, and giggle-fits from our kids. We love the beach and enjoying delicious coffee and food wherever we go.



Hi! My name is Rylee. I am a freshman at Oregon State University. When I’m not in school, I love to be outdoors, running, hiking, or boating! I also love to draw and paint in my free time.



Ayo! It’s Yana, like Yawn-uh.

I’m proud to say I’m part of the Core Coffee family. On my days off you can catch me on any type of board, from snowboarding to sand boarding.

I’m big on outdoors and finding wacky places around town to take pictures. Everyone calls me loud and goofy, and I hope I can bring a smile when servin up some tasty drinks!



My name’s Andrew.

I’m currently in Paramedic school and love doing things most people don’t get to do.

I love the outdoors and challenging myself in it, but just as much love sitting in a cozy coffee shop with a good book. 



Hey!! My names Hannah!

I moved to Gresham from a small town in NW Washington.

I’m a sucker for long drives in the car with the music WAY too loud, laughing and having fun with those I love, and of course COFFEE!

I’m super excited to serve up some yummy for y’all!


Social Media | Barista

Hey, Natalie here!

I’m a mother of boys, an advocate for adoption + foster care, and lover of good coffee.

I love people and also books.

I’m a local photographer and author, who feels lucky to be alive.



I graduated top of my class with an emphasis on business from Sam Barlow High School. 

I’m the newest Barista  and am very passionate about serving the Gresham Community at Core Coffee. 



 I love delicious coffee, anything chocolate and spending time with my two silly kids. I’m super excited to be part of the Core Coffee family and can’t wait to see you all at the cafe!

Lacy and Cory Price



Cory and I live and love the Gresham community and am honored to serve as a meeting place that encourages community involvement.  Building a stronger community benefits us all and drives our dedication.  We strive to serve the best quality organic drinks and eats possible.  Sharing incredible flavors with an exceptional NW coffee experience is our goal for every visitor.  We look forward to meeting you soon!

Supporting Local Artists

We love the creativity that exists within our community and want to enjoy it every day. Using our professional gallery system, we invite local artists to showcase and sell their work on our café’s walls. Moreover, in exchange for making our shop more beautiful, we pass 100% of the profits to the artists when their work sells.

For individuals and groups, we regularly provide our café as a platform for many events and seminars.
