Out of the blue he sent me a pound of damned good Stumptown coffee from Portland and a handmade cup to drink it out of:

Cup #3

Cup #2

Thanks Brian!

That's a nice round receptacle. The last thing I moulded was a small hedgepig, back when I was ten.

That sweet cup is the color of Arnold's face in Commando.

Hat trick

This hits all the good gift buttons:

- unannounced
- made with own hands
- delicious

Wonderful!

Mine holds pens (and has a handle).

Stumptown demands respect. We hope to get you hooked, if not to get you up here then to at least help support a damned good roaster (because you can always buy it online).

Mmmm, I think I'll have a cup.

yeah, that's some good stuff. it was our default go-to variety before we started mixing it up. it's well balanced.

when they have it, the ethiopian harare is great also. there's an extremely distinct blueberry flavor.

the honduran finca el puente may actuallly be worth the $16 or so retail they charge for it. it's really goddamned good.

In typical Brian style, an unexpected and beautiful handcrafted surprise.

Im anxious to get my hands on that coffee, I'm looking at websites trying to order it right now! Do you like the blend he sent you?
