jaimejill

Jill Stanley & Jaime Boddorff are two rad Stumptown gals who were both working in Production at our Brooklyn Roast Post until very recently when Jill jumped ship and headed West to become a Roaster’s apprentice in Seattle. Before she left, Jill and Jaime compiled a diva-heavy mix they played on delivery days when they shared a route and the boys weren’t around. Jill says, “As much as we love hearing guitars and screaming and psych-rock all day, we really, really love our divas. Sometimes a gal needs a little Beyonce boost while sitting in Manhattan traffic.” Who could argue with that? 

What do you do at Stumptown?

Jaime: I work in production.

Jill: I work in Brooklyn’s Production department. Driving and scoopin’.

What do you do when you’re not at work?

Jaime: I love taking photos and doing nail art!

Jill: I am a film nerd, a walking enthusiast, and I love to travel. Copenhagen, here I come!

Favorite things to eat right now in New York?

Jaime: Tacos and Ramen and Ice Cream.

Jill: The lamb sandwich and fries at Balthazar. Bee Sting pizza at Roberta’s.

Favorite corner of the city?

Jaime: Oh geez there are so many corners. I like Rockaway Beach Blvd and 96th, because you get fish tacos and the beach all in one.

Jill: Morton Street in the West Village. I’ll move in as soon as I win the lottery.

What can you tell us about this mix?

Jaime: As much as we love hearing guitars and screaming and psych-rock all day, we really, really love our divas. We can’t really get away with listening to divas at the Roast Post. Maybe in Cold Brew…

Jill: Our crew tries to maintain a happy medium with the stereo. There’s
lots of diversity, but we typically shy away from anything that’s considered too wacky or divisive. It’s a fantastic policy.

The van is a different animal, especially if those divisive tastes align. I lean toward classical music to keep things calm, but Jaime and I discovered a shared love of Beyoncé on one of our “Ladies Day” delivery routes, and from this a tradition of listening to pop music was born. Beyoncé is the best.

Radical. Thanks ladies.

On view September 10th – October 20th, 2014

Opening reception Sunday, September 14th (4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.)

Posters for nothing. Begetting and beheading. Breakout hits, not enough. Genuine excellence in cratering.  Fake drips, late to the game.  Everybody loves distribution.  Brancusi playing golf.  Maybe later for the win.  Lost and found flavors.  I want the information.  Hooray no one’s here.  Let’s rebrand them as terrorists.  Production life.  There’s always coffee.  Everything takes forever.  You/me a small part of forever,  and everything.

Born in Portland, John Brodie has been painting for more than 20 years, with explorations in book art, prints and multiples, and sculpture. He was included in Disjecta’s PDX2010: A Biennial of Contemporary Art, and from 1996 to 2006 was a member of the notorious 333 Studios, a loose collective and fine arts studio.  In 2007, he founded TodayArt Studios in a 9,000 square-foot building in Southeast Portland.  He opened Monograph Bookwerks, a fine art bookstore, in 2010 with artist Blair Saxon-Hill.  He also owns Le Happy, a frenchy restaurant, and for 20 years was in the music business, managing the legendary club La Luna,  and also the globe-trotting band Pink Martini.

Bo Thunell is our resident Camp Coffee Expert and wilderness pioneer. Besides being an ace coffee educator in our training department, he’s also a bike racing, Coors Light swilling, cliff-jumping road dog, who’s the first one up brewing coffee for his buds in the woods and taking cool photos of his exploits all the while. He shared with us his favorite methods for brewing camp coffee and some of his recent photos from the field.

What’s your current go-to camp coffee method?

Currently my fave is the Snowpeak Dripper. I’m all about its design and functionality. I use it with V60 filters when I can remember to pack them but I’ve used the bottom half of a T-shirt before as a filter.

What have you been up to this summer?

I’ve been spending a lot of time in the Gorge and around Mount Hood. I’ve been riding mountain bikes, drinking a lot of Coors Light and finding the best swimming holes that the Pacific Northwest has to offer. I also have been spending a lot of time staring at the stars at night.

BoThunell_Blog BoThunell_Blog13BoThunell_Blog14

Any favorite trips in recent memory?

A recent favorite was a bikepacking trip with Yonder Journal in Northern California. We tried to connect land to sea via an old mule trail. I was invited along to make the coffee – I was responsible for making coffee for eight of us. I took a Snowpeak French Press and an AeroPress for my special “night coffees.” I would wake up and get the Jetboils going to get coffee to everyone. The mornings were cold and everyone was appreciative.

Are you always the one who makes coffee when you go camping with friends?

I like early starts and I’m usually the first one up fueling my friends with coffee. I’ve trained all of them to make coffee themselves in case I have a sleep-in, but it’s usually me.

BoThunell_Blog11BoThunell_Blog12 BoThunell_Blog10

Got any pro-tips for brewing coffee in the woods?

If you have a lot of people drinking coffee and time or weight of your pack is an issue, take pre-ground coffee. Otherwise, I love the mini Porlex grinder. An AeroPress is rad if you’re in the middle of nowhere on a road trip. You can pop in a gas station to get hot water and make your AeroPress in the parking lot.

What type of coffee do you take camping?

I typically take one of our Latin American single origins – The molasses and nutty coffees go super well with camp breakfast, like eggs and bacon or dehydrated milk and granola.

BoThunell_Blog9 BoThunell_Blog6 BoThunell_Blog3

What are your camp coffee brewing parameters?

I have a custom spoon that holds 21 grams of coffee, which is ideal for Snowpeak. The AeroPress scoop is about right, holding 17-18 grams. I grind both slightly finer than a cone drip. I try to keep it as simple as possible. No timers, no scales.

For the Snowpeak, I preheat the filter with water. Add coffee. Saturate all the grounds. Give it a good stir with a stick. Fill it up all the way to the top and let it drain through.

For the AeroPress, I use the upright method. Pre-heat the filter with water. Add 17 grams (one AeroPress scoop) and fill it all the way up to the 4 and stir it. I place the plunger and pull up slightly to create a pressure seal. Then I look at the sky for about 1 minute 15, uncap, stir, and plunge.
