Opened in 1999, the original Stumptown Coffee at 45th and Division in Portland has perfected the art of finding, roasting and serving coffee from various locations in the world. For Stumptown, it isn't about profit margins but coffee taste. Stumptown opens their doors daily with the express purpose of roasting and serving coffee drinks designed to satisfy.

Holy God, we worship You as Giver of new life. Blow through our lives, O Spirit. Cleanse us of all contamination and impure thoughts; of lack of love, selfishness and intolerance.
Give new life to our entire being. Blow through the hearts of all who are distressed. You are the Comforter that the Savior promised to the sad. Raise them up who snap under the burden of their sorrows and give them new courage for life. Blow through your church, O Spirit, and bring a God-willed revival. Transform communities that work out of love for You and make Sundays of everyday life.
Blow, O Spirit, through our country, its leaders and all its people. Work in a powerful way for reconciliation, tolerance and peace. Let the Father’s name be glorified, Christ’s attitude live in us, and let Your fruit, O Spirit, become visible in our lives.
Be, O Spirit of God, to all of us, the breath of a truly Christian life. In the name of our Risen Savior, Jesus the Living Christ. ~Amen (anonymous)

"The message about Christ's death on the cross is nonsense to those who are being lost; but for us who are being saved, it is God's power." ~Apostle Paul in first letter to the Corinthians.

After taking a series of photos of nearby Guadalupe, I couldn't resist this dramatic view of the Pismo Beach pier.

I tried a new coffee shop in Gresham, OR. Ordered a Latte and was surprised by this clever design followed by some of the tastiest espresso I've had in months. Thank you, Origin's Coffee/Tea.
