1. Perth, Australia | Hopman Cup

Is it legal to order an espresso? During a tennis match?

While some of the world was still sound sleep, Serena Williams, the world class tennis player was in Perth and wanted to know.In between her Hopman Cup match which she would eventually win, she had a coffee break-ish snack after first asking if it was legal to order an espresso. It was, and she had such espresso and then won her next two sets 6-3, 6-0 respectively.  She said, “Everyone needs coffee every now and then.” Sounds like espresso is the break shot of this champion.

2. Portland | Stumptown Coffee Roasters

Fifteen years of Stumpin’.

Stumptown grammed about its anniversary which linked back to a blog post – long form style – detailing a brief history of its inception in 1999 up until now.  There’s roses, wiry sketch lines and loads of important history including its conscious coupling with the Ace Hotel. See the history here and above all, enjoy with coffee, if you like.
