coffee head painting

i found this painting on the side of the hawthorne theatre in portland oregon. we were on our way to a coffee shop, of course, when i noticed it. we had to go around the block so i could get a photo of it. i didn't get off the car to see if there was a signature on it so i don't have any info on it other than it's a painting of a guy with a cup of coffee on his head. it looks like it's been there a while because it's really weathered and worn. i don't know why it's there or who put it there but i do know that it's cool and i'm glad a got a photo of it.

stumptown coffee roasters

i had been hearing about stumptown coffee roasters for quite some time now, but since i live in so cal, i didn't know when i'd ever visit their store in oregon. it just so happened that daughter #1 had to go there on business and she invited me along. my answer? "when do we leave!?" our trip was this past weekend. stumptown, here i come!

we went to the store on division street, since that's where it all started. it's a tiny little place with very little seating indoors with additional seating out front.

the counter and this roaster take up just about 1/2 the store.

i ordered their kenya ngunguru, which they prepared in a chemex. they describe it as being a "tart cup that bursts with juicy flavors of peach, red currant and orange zest." the flavors didn't kick in until it started to cool a bit then, bam they flood in!

i liked it so much, i bought a bag to bring home, and a mug to drink it in :)

cold brew on tap?!

gotta check-in on foursquare :)
