Wine drinkers are probably familiar with the term “grand cru.” If you don’t dabble in Pinot, it basically means the grapes are from a particularly special area known for quality. The term has even been adopted by the the likes of Rodenbach and AleSmith when referring to one of their finest beers. And now it’s being adopted by Stumptown coffee. Stumptown Grand Cru Cold Brew is made from rare Gesha beans. The story goes that Duane Sorenson, the founder of Stumptown, brought some Gesha seeds to a Honduran producer about 10 years ago. After caring for the temperamental plant for a decade, you can now taste the fruits of their labor. Expect to find notes of tea, bergamot and tropical fruit if you stumble upon a bottle at one of Stumptown’s cafes.


We’re sick of the quarantine beard, so we’re going clean shaven again. We’re doing it with a Henson razor. Precision-machined out of aluminum by a boutique aerospace manufacturer, this razor feels and works better than anything else on the market. It presents the blade at such a precise angle you can barely feel the shave. It’s uncanny. Most guys (and gals, they have a women’s razor) prefer drugstore cartridge razors because they’re plug ‘n play. Honestly, the Henson design ensures perfect positioning every time, and it’s cheaper and better for the environment long-term. Switch today.
