Golden Saddle and the Sleepers pulled together a great little video showcasing the weekly LA River Camp Coffee meetup. Interested in going? LARCC meets every Wednesday morning at Sunnynook River Park, starting at 7AM.
Yes, you should support your local bike, record and coffee shop forever and forever but that doesn’t mean you can’t help other small, independent shops grow at the same time. My (old) local coffee shop and friends at Flat Track Coffee have just launched a Kickstarter to help expand their Austin, Texas facilities into a complete roaster and expand their digs.
Backers get to choose between a bag of coffee, shirts or their new camp mugs… depending on how much you want to fork over. Personally, I’m digging the Scoundrels designs and classic camp coffee mugs…
Stumptown has just launched their new site and it features all kinds of informative stuff. Like this video of Austin’s newest citizen Bo Thunell (@bojordan) breaking down the 1s, 2s, 3s, 4s, and et ceteras of Aero Press coffee. Now you would think that drinking coffee day in and day out would give Bo lazer beam focus? Well…. it doesn’t, and just like the rest of us, he day dreams from time to time. And in his case when he spaces out, he spaces out to an emerald green forest filled with loam and peppered with jumps. Not a bad way to space travel. When he is back on earth he makes a great cup of joe and in this video he can teach you to do the same.
… This reminds me, I need coffee!
Every Wednesday, a group of coffee enthusiasts wake up with the sun, pack their camping coffee setups on their bikes and meet in a small park on the LA river. There’s no requisite, just make coffee, chat and partake in the occasional donut.
Errin Vasquez organizes this gathering, which I first found out about on Instagram and this week, I got to hang out with this growing meeting at the Sunnynook River Park. Along with capturing the general vibes, I followed Jesse Carmody‘s brewing technique and shot photos of Errin’s Box Dog Bikes Pelican randonneur bike.
Mission Workshop at 541 Valencia is open!
They’ve cut through the back wall of their warehouse on Rondel alley and expanded to Valencia street, creating what can only be referred to as the Mission Workshop Industrial Complex in the heart of San Francisco.
Join the gang for #FreeCoffeeFriday provided by Bicycle Coffee starting 10AM, Nov. 7th.
It’s getting cold out yonder and that means one thing: time to drink warm liquids – even more. My mug-consumption goes through the roof these months with all my hot toddy and coffee intake, so why not mix it up a bit with the new Cable Knit Mugs from Firefly Bicycels? Only $35 at the Firefly Webshop! Warm beverage holders don’t have to cost an arm and a leg!
Made in the USA from high-grade polymer, these Kinoko Cycles mugs will take a beating. See more at Kinoko. I love the throwback insignia.
