Grand Opening Celebration at SW Madison Café in Portland

After lots of hard work getting our second Portland café open in the Sovereign Building, it was fun to kick back and celebrate at our Grand Opening party last month. With live music from Mbrascatu, amazing food and cocktails, and a packed house we certainly celebrated in style! A big thanks to the Oregon Historical Society, our neighbors in the Sovereign Hotel, for maintaining the beautiful history and architectural details of the building; we were thrilled to donate $500 back to them for future preservation projects. If you missed the party here are a few photos of the new café...

New Single Origin Ethiopia Guji Kercha

Barrel Aged Single Origin: Peru Condor Puna

Last year Master Roaster Emanuele Bizzarri hand-selected the Peru Condor Puna coffee while visiting Peru. Grown at a high altitude between 1,300 - 1,800 meters in the Quillabamba Province in the Cusco region of Peru, this coffee is generally sweeter and of higher quality than coffees grown at lower altitudes. We had the honor of being the first to offer this unique light roast in the United States last summer. This September it returns as part of our limited edition Barrel Aged Single Origin program. This Barrel Aged Peru coffee is cured for two months in American oak whiskey barrels from Woodinville distillery – they were...
