Coffee Producers Invade Portland!

How lucky am I? I just spent the whole day tagging along with 11 awesome coffee producers from Costa Rica, Colombia, Kenya, and El Salvador visiting Portland cafes, thanks to an invitation from my pals at Stumptown Coffee. These producers are here in Portland today and tonight for Stumptown’s Producers Panel, to be held at the Leftbank at 6:30. Stumpies will take the producers up to Seattle tomorrow and hold the same Panel at 3:30 p.m. at Seattle University. For all the details, go HERE.

The producers pose with Aleco, Stumptown's green coffee buyer, in front of the downtown PDX Stumptown cafe this morning.
