Tucked away in downtown Portland between leather crafters and comic book junkies is sneaker-head coffee shop, Deadstock coffee. It’s a unique blend of design, style and taste.
Deadstock did it big with a team of brands and local hot spots. Orox Leather was hanging out showing off their gear. Floating world comics held a sidewalk sale. Batter Bakery provided treats. Deadstock held a raffle for coffee and Jordan sneakers.
People gathered in the Garage next store to chill with PBR’s and classic arcade games provided by Ground Control Classic Arcade. Petesnacks from Nighttime Safari laid down old school beats to set the vibe.
Baristas packed into tight quarters to compete. Each competitor received a coaster for competing. First place received a Kalita Wave, Acaia Scale t-shirts and year subscriptions to magazine.
Congratulations to our winners! Third place goes to Dean Fallett-Velaseo from Upper Left Roasters.
Second Place goes to Brian Stoothoff who recently moved to Portland.
First place goes to CJ Speelman from Tanager Coffee.
Thank you! And be looking out for a TNTNW at your local coffee shop! On August 18th we’ll be in Spokane, WA at Roasthouse coffee!
Until next time,
