Oh, so you want to know about this soap thing, right? Well, it’s no secret that Coava owner, Matt Higgins, loves to fish. But how do you get that stinky fishy smell off your hands? Coava has collaborated with Roots Soap Co. to create a Fisherman’s Soap featuring anise and Salvadoran coffee, which will launch on July 14.

This Fisherman's soap is a collaboration between Coava and Roots Soap Co., both Portland companies.

Roots Soap Co. was started in 2010 by Anna Cools, a second generation soap maker, with the intent of making a good product that everyone needs even better. All the soaps are handmade using the cold process method, with 100% natural ingredients, essential oils, and rainwater.

The Fisherman’s Soap will be available through both Coava locations (1300 SE Grand Ave and 2631 SE Hawthorne Blvd), and online at www.coavacoffee.com
