Drink Spotlight: Genius Coffee Superfood Smoothie





About Genius

Finding a pure, organic smoothie is tough to locate in the market.  All we saw on the shelf were cold-pressed juices, almond milks, coconut water, and cleansing shots. We envisioned creating a healthy, organic smoothie.  Looking at the shelf from the consumer’s perspective, we wondered “Where are all the filling smoothies?  Where can I find a meal replacement drink that is thicker and more satiating than all the others?

Drink Spotlight: Stumptown Sparkling Cold Brew



We’d like to introduce you to the celestial marvel called Sparkling Cold Brew.

These refreshing and tasty pop-tops come in three varieties: Original, Ginger Citrus, and Honey Lemon.

The inspiration for Sparkling Cold Brew, like most ideas we have, was born in the cafe. For the past year, we’ve been mixing up fresh seasonal Cold Brew sodas in our home cafes. We first launched them in our New Orleans cafe last April, the idea emboldened by a city that loves iced coffee and drinking, in general. We started with the summery Endless Summer and bright Duane Sorenson, both refreshing versions of our favorite cold coffee cocktails.

As the weather cooled this Fall, we happily sipped The Salty Henry and The Tonty into the long afternoons. Further encouraged by our love of drinking coffee while rambling around, we canned up this line of portable buzzy bubblers that are ready for you to sip wherever you find yourself.

For the days when you need a lift but maybe aren’t all in for a lightning ride, Sparkling Cold Brew is your co-pilot. These babies contain half the caffeine of our classic Cold Brew coffee with the added lift of bubbles. We figure Sparkling Cold Brew is just the road soda to pack along on your next campout, surf trip or barbecue. Also, quite nice as a hangover helper, incidentally. We’re looking at you, Mardi Gras.





The Original is a nod to classic old world coffee sodas like the Manhattan Special and Brasilena, made with carbonated Cold Brew coffee, natural cane sugar and a touch of lemon.

Ginger Citrus

Inspired by our big love of Ginger Beer around our Portland HQ, the Ginger Citrus doses out a hearty ginger kick-in-the-pants, which sits well with a bit of sugar and citrus to balance it all out.

Honey Lemon

Our Portland neighbors and beekeeper/honey makers Bee Local reminded us how good honey and Cold Brew are together. This one is a nod to our Duane Sorenson soda in the cafe – it’s an Arnold Palmer-type refresher.

Coffee Spotlight: Parisi Burundi Gatare Washed




Our latest coffee from Burundi features a creamy mouthfeel with a nicely balanced acidity. Notes of caramel, plum and lime are present throughout. Makes for an excellent pour-over, but could produce an interesting espresso shot.



About the company

It was our Sicilian grandmother, with the help of a moka pot and Italian espresso, who introduced us to the fine art of coffee. She instilled in us a deep sense of “coffee as a tasteful part of daily life.” It was always the pinnacle moment of every social occasion. It was treated with care and selected purposefully to be an ideal complement.

Years later, the growth of the local roasting movement awakened our fond memories of handcrafted coffee. We were inspired to pair our love of coffee with our long-standing passion for producing fine foods. It had always been our belief coffee played as important a role in the dining experience as it does in supporting the social conventions of our world. Read More

About the Company

Pure, honest coffee.
Cold crafted by Hatch.

On the surface, the process of cold brewing coffee seems deceptively simple – after all, there are only two ingredients, coffee and water. But at Hatch, we know that what separates ordinary cold brew from the not-so-ordinary is an appreciation for subtlety and craftsmanship. And that is why we go to great lengths to oversee every step of our production process. We are determined that every batch of our lovingly crafted cold brew captures the pure essence of coffee.
Best Beans
It all starts with the best quality beans. We ethically source 100% organic, fair trade coffee beans from reputable and sustainable single-origin lots.
Precise Roast
We meticulously roast our beans in small scale batches on a low-emission roaster, gingerly coaxing out those unique, single-origin flavours. Our beans are then matured for 3 to 10 days, depending on the optimal maturity cycle for each bean and roast.
Crafted Brew
Once our beans are ready, they are ground on a precision grinder and then immediately brewed. Our coffee is literally cold brewed – steeped in small batches for 20 hours at a very cold temperature – we do not brew at room temperature. We carefully monitor the purity and pH levels of our water to ensure quality and consistency throughout the brewing process.
Bottled Fresh
When our cold brew is ready to be bottled, we filter it twice for clarity and use state-of-the-art treatment technology (the first in North America) to seal in that fresh, smooth and naturally sweet taste.

Drink Spotlight: Dunkin’ Donuts to Launch Ready-to-Drink Coffee in 2017



CANTON, Mass. (Dec. 29, 2016) – Today, National Coffee Day, Dunkin’ Donuts, part of Dunkin’ Brands Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: DNKN), announced that it will launch a line of Dunkin’ Donuts branded ready-to-drink (RTD) coffee beverages in the United States in early 2017. The Coca-Cola Company will manufacture, distribute and sell the product.

This marks Dunkin’ Donuts’ first entry into the ready-to-drink coffee category, which has enjoyed very strong growth over the past five years and represents $2.3 billion dollars in annual sales according to Nielsen. The agreement supports Dunkin’ Donuts’ goal of strengthening its position as a coffee authority and further extends the Dunkin’ Donuts brand into new distribution channels.

“We are delighted to be working with The Coca-Cola Company, a world-class partner that will provide us with world-class consumer access, by bringing ready-to-drink Dunkin’ Donuts coffee to the refrigerator cases of grocery, convenience stores and mass merchandisers, as well as inside Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants, across the United States,” said Dunkin’ Brands Chairman and CEO Nigel Travis. “This new product introduction will increase consumption of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee and increase our brand relevance with existing and new consumers, including many younger customers, which we believe will in turn, drive incremental visits to our restaurants.”

Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed. The Coca-Cola Company will produce Dunkin’ Donuts ready-to-drink coffee beverages according to Dunkin’ Donuts specifications, including using high-quality Arabica coffee blends. Coca-Cola’s extensive network of bottling partners will sell and distribute Dunkin’ Donuts ready-to-drink beverages, which will include real milk and sugar in a variety of flavors.

Dunkin’ Donuts also announced that it would equally share with qualified U.S. Dunkin’ Donuts franchisees its net profits from the sales of ready-to-drink coffee through outlets outside of its restaurants.

“We are an almost 100 percent franchised company, and our mission is to drive our brand relevance and to drive the profitability of our Dunkin’ Donuts franchisees,” added Travis. “Our research has clearly shown that ready-to-drink coffee consumption is a separate occasion from the purchase of our restaurant-brewed iced coffee. That same research also shows that having a ready-to-drink coffee product builds brand loyalty. We strongly believe that this product launch is good for customers and for our franchisees.”

Dunkin’ Donuts has partnered with The Coca-Cola Company since 2012 to serve Coca-Cola products, including soft drinks, juices, enhanced waters and energy drinks, at Dunkin' Donuts restaurants in the United States and select markets around the globe.
