Happy New Year!
Heart felt wishes for a New Year filled with happiness and good health! Thanks for letting us fill your cup. Here’s to another year of great people and great coffee – Thump and daughter Finley turn 3 this month! Happy Birthday Thumpers!
CUPPING: Sunday, 1/24, 1:30-2:30pm
Discover the process pro coffee buyers use to grade and select coffees during our fun, free coffee cupping sessions. Come break a crust, whiff the aromas and slurp up the subtle nuances of different beans and roasts.
Trad Cap Happy Hour – Every Friday from 2:30pm – Close
Join us every Friday for a celebration of the classic Italian espresso drink, the Traditional Cappuccino. During TradCap Happy Hour – or Cappy Hour, if you will – enjoy half-priced traditional espresso drinks, dopios, macchiatos, and traditional cappuccinos. Many people have never ventured to try these delightful little drinks. No syrup, no chocolate, just espresso and perhaps a small embrace of milk steamed to sweet, velvety perfection!
Featured Cup: Kenya Gaturiri Direct Trade
We love this special coffee so much we think it deserves featuring for another month, and we’re glad it’s still available. If you haven’t already tried the Gaturiri, tell us what you think! Check out the thumpology.com article that describes our visit to Portland to hear the producer of Gaturiri — as well as coffee producers from around the world — talk about their challenges and innovations.
