Creative Projects Manager Evan Kinkel unearthed his SoCal hardcore roots for us with this warm weather mix.

“This playlist certainly isn’t representative of what I listen to these days, but I thought it would be fun to make a summer playlist channeling the salt-crusted surf punk kid I used to be growing up in southern California. Black Flag and Agent Orange were mixed tape staples for my drives to the beach. Windows down, speakers crackling, sun on my face, and surfboards in the back of the truck. Looking back it’s hard to imagine what all the angst was about…”

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

I try to get outside as much as possible, preferably on or near a body of water. Surfing, canoeing, swimming; there’s a lot to look forward to during the summer in Oregon.

What is your favorite thing to eat right now in Portland?

The hardest thing about moving to Portland from San Diego was the lack of authentic Mexican food. I live out near 82nd, so I have been able to find a few gems including Mariscos. They have a michelada with shrimp in it, great tacos, and a loud mariachi band on Friday nights.

Favorite corners of the city?

I feel like every quadrant of Portland is changing so much right now, I’m always discovering something new that wasn’t there a week ago. That being said, I love everything that is happening downtown. I like to counter my outdoor tendencies by hanging in the mezzanine at the Ace with an Americano and a good book.

Thanks Evan!

We have a lot in common with the Portland Timbers beyond our woodland namesake.

Our history is one steeped in tradition, independence and community and the same can be said for the Timbers and their loyal Army of supporters.

In 1975, the Portland Timbers played their inaugural season and Soccer City USA was born, forever changing the face of the beautiful game stateside. In honor of that fateful year, and our proud arboreal heritage here in Rose City, we’ve teamed up with the Timbers and created a special coffee we’ve dubbed the 1975 Blend, chosen to commemorate the Timbers first season played in the North American Soccer League. We’ve also designed a mug emblazoned with a phrase taken from a Timbers Army battle chant.

We are the exclusive coffee sponsor of the Portland Timbers – you can get our Cold Brew Stubbies and Milk Cartons, as well as the 1975 blend brewed hot for the games, at Stadium concessions.

We’re also stoked to present this commemorative blend and mug for sale at the Stadium, online, and in our cafes along with the mugs beginning on Game Day, Sunday, May 11. We’ll also be brewing it up proudly on Sunday along with our fellow Army-supporting cafes:

Fresh Pot (all 3 locations)

Albina Press (both locations)

Floyd’s (all locations)

See See Motorcycles

First Cup

Elephants Uptown

BiPartisan

Rose City Futsal

Voodoo Donuts

The 1975 Blend is made up of coffees from Latin America and Africa, imparting notes of dark chocolate, stone fruit and marzipan.

Bury Me in Green and Gold

Yonder Journal is an “exploration of American frontiers and Western principles,” made up of Reports, Briefs, and Guides meant to illustrate notes from the field, with photographic and written essays, and inspirational instructionals complete with maps, cue-sheets, diagrams and drawings.

The participants think of themselves as cultural anthropologists and sportsmen. Most recently, they embarked on a bikepacking adventure/travail through the Mythical State of Jefferson.

For this noble voyage, Founder and Editor Daniel Wakefield Pasley amassed his Crack Team of folks with various specialties and talents. The team included, among others, Dave Marchi, a ski and alpine guide whose skills include being “almost good with maps,” and Kyle Von Hoetzendorff, the writer of this particular adventure, who was selected for his astute penmanship and “because he will do anything.” The ever-talented Chris McNally came along to illustrate the journal and subsequent Catalog of Misadventures, and our own wholesale trainer and camp coffee wizard Bo Thunell, who is always up for a wild physical challenge.yonderjournal_msojbikepack_day1-4yonderjournal_bikepacking_mishaps-20yonderjournal_msojbikepack_day1-47yonderjournal_bikepacking_mishaps-3

Theirs is a story of American restlessness and adventure, a contemporary On the Road – without the Benzedrine and, at times, even the road remained to be seen.

No one could foresee what would become of these adventurers, the seasoned and the tenderfoot, all along for the ride (and hitchhike, and off-trail hike with bike atop shoulder, repurposed as bushwhacker.) They couldn’t prepare packlists enough for breakdowns, both mechanical and psychological, and the ultimate reward in the form of an impressive breakfast on day five and of course, this dazzling tell-all explorer’s journal.

It’s most definitely worth a read – though perhaps, not a repeat mission. Not for the tenderfoots among us, anyway.

blog_620px (1)For the first time, we’re offering a tasting trio of three of our beloved blends. A perfect introduction to our coffees and a great gift for Mom & Dad, your new neighbor, first-time parents, or just about anyone, including your sweet ass self.

Hair Bender is our signature and most popular blend – it’s what we use in our cafes as espresso, and it contains a blend of all three growing regions – coffees from Latin America, Africa and Indonesia are included in the mix. It’s very balanced, with sweet and savory notes of milk chocolate, Meyer lemon and jasmine.

The Holler Mountain blend is certified organic with coffees from Central and South America and Indonesia. It’s a little heavier bodied and more syrupy with dark toned notes of toffee, hazelnut and blackberry.

The House Blend is a mix of Latin and East African coffees from some producers with which we have a direct trade supply relationship. It’s supremely balanced and sweet, with toasted nut and floral aromas and a milk chocolate finish.

You can now taste these three beauties side by side and see what suits you. Shop here.

This new body of work is about utilizing classic motifs and contemporary materials. Rawls’ surfaces and paint are both plastic, repelling each other, fighting for a footing, clinging at last.
