Left Coast Roast Book ReleaseAugust 24th, 2012 by Kevin Haugen
Left Coast Roast, by Hanna Neuschwander, is a caffeine-fueled guide to 55 key companies in Washington, Oregon, and Northern California — from small artisan roasters like Heart, Coava, and Kuma and history-making icons like Peet’s and Starbucks, to rapidly expanding shops like Portland’s Stumptown and San Francisco’s Blue Bottle. Profiles describe each company’s background, roasting history, and style, and explain how to visit and order beans for home brewing. Not to toot our own horn too much, but there’s a great little writeup about Clive in this book as well.
Timber Press is hosting a launch event at Spirit of 77 in Portland on Monday, August 27. Come on down and enjoy specialty cocktails, coffee-inspired beer, hors d’oeuvres, and many other delights as we kick-off the exciting release of the book and celebrate the craft of West Coast coffee!
