Portland is home to great coffee and legendary donuts and participants in this tour will have the chance to sample both. In 2018, Condé Nast Traveler magazine rated Portland as the best coffee city in the United States. It's home to Stumptown Coffee, one of the leaders of coffee’s third wave, which considers coffee to be an artisanal product treated with the same reverence as fine wine and craft beer. Donuts are now part of this artisanal scene with Blue Star making its products from brioche with local and organic ingredients. Participants will go on a guided walking tour of downtown Portland and visit one of Stumptown's outlets followed by a visit to Voodoo Donuts, Blue Star Donuts, and Coco Donuts. Participants will be able to purchase coffee and donuts along the way while we consider the implications of imbuing ordinary products with value.
Participants should wear walking shoes and be prepared for any weather. Walking distance around 2.2 miles.
