Tues. 2/14: Valentine’s Day
Bring in your sweetie or someone you care about to enjoy some of our favorite Valentine seasonal drinks and eats, such as a Nutty Luv Latte, a Salted Carmelita Latte, or a traditional cappuccino, paired with an amazing 72% dark chocolate truffle!
Sat. 2/11–Sun. 2/19: Made from the HEART Valentines – From: YOU To: THEM?
For the third year, we will provide materials for you to make a valentine for someone special. Look for bags on each table, full of fun paper, pens, scissors and tape. We may even make a space for you to hang your valentine for your beloved to retrieve on a special date with you! Please take home all valentines from thump by Sunday, February 19. Thanks!
Sun. 2/26, 1:30-2:30pm: Monthly Public Coffee Tasting
This fun, informal exploration of coffees from around the world, uses the tasting and evaluation techniques of professional coffee cuppers. Bring a friend and join us!
Traditional Cappuccino Happy Hour, Every Friday 2:30-5:30pm
If you’ve never tried a traditional espresso drink – a doppio, macchiato or cappuccino – make sure to join us on Friday afternoons when we offer them for 50% off! It’s a great way to cap the week and roll into your Friday evening.
It’s Never too Late to Say, “Thank you!”
Thank you for giving from the heart in November and December to three locally based non-profit organizations that are near and dear to us at thump!
Many of you helped fill up the Operation Elf Box at the front of the shop to provide new toys for area kids in need.
Many of you purchased the Oregon Natural Desert Association’s 2012 landscape calendar at thump, and 100% of the proceeds went directly back to ONDA to help protect and preserve public lands East of the Cascades.
And many of you in December were taken by and purchased the amazing art and coffee mugs created by young Zambian orphans who live in the Vima Lupwa Home. 100% of the proceeds from your purchase will go directly to help offset the operational costs of running this non-denominational home, which serves some of Zambia’s neediest children. Most amazing is that this home was founded by Bend resident Malerie Pratt when she was only 19 years old!

Find Your Wish on Flickr
The wooden planks swaying from thump’s ceiling capturing brief wishes from passersby, are as much of what makes thump, thump as any delicious drinks we serve. Have you ever wondered what happens to those wishes or how many have been created? Well, local artist and “Wishes” installation creator Mark Bernahl rotates the wishes every couple of months, adding new ones, removing old ones. He has kept every single wish that has been rotated out since the “Wishes” inception more than four years ago! And, he has scanned them! You can view more than 5,000 of them here. If you wrote a wish sometime in the last four years, go to our Flickr site and see if you can find it. Over 5,000 and counting are on the site! And . . . let us know if your wish came true!
