PHOTOS COURTESY OF STUMPTOWN COFFEE Continued on page 20 Stumptown Coffee documentary depicts climate change impacts in Guatemala Stumptown Coffee Roasters and Farm League teamed up to produce the 30-minute documentary, Flower of Flowers, which has screening dates around the United States throughout the summer. The film follows friends from different creative backgrounds to Antigua, Guatemala, to learn more about how climate change continues to impact coffee-growing regions. Pro skateboarders Rick McCrank and Ray Barbee, artist Lori Damiano, and Stumptown's quality-assurance manager, Jim Kelso, engage with local coffee producers and learn about what's happening in Central America through the lens of music, art, and skateboarding. At press time, screenings were scheduled for August 14 in Seattle; August 16 in Portland, Ore.; August 16 in New Orleans; and October 27 in Sisters, Ore. Verve's new option for coffee on-the-go It just made sense for the creative minds behind Dripkit—a portable, one-use pourover contraption, complete with coffee—and Verve Coffee Roasters, the renowned Santa Cruz, Calif.–based specialty roaster, to join forces. After all, both companies are known for innovative design aesthetic and a quest for quality. The result, called simply Verve x Dripkit, is a new way to enjoy exceptional coffees no matter where you are. " We want our customers to 'Live with Verve,'" says Verve cofounder Colby Barr. "That means intersecting with them wherever they may be, whether at one of our flagship cafés or in their kitchens over breakfast. The partnership with Dripkit creates even more opportunities for us to be a part of their daily lives or routines, whether that's camping, at work, or at home. Verve x Dripkit makes it incredibly easy for people to incorporate expert-style coffee into various molds of their lives." The small, flexible brewers, which are prefilled with 15 grams of ground coffee and can fold flat for portability, are available online as well as in-store at all Verve Coffee locations for $3.25–$3.50 per individual pack. 18 barista magazine
