Stoked Roasters celebrates its second anniversary with a 6-9 p.m. party July 23 at the café, 603 Portway Ave., across from Waterfront Park. The event is also a benefit for LymeLight Foundation, whose mission is to help children and young adults struggling with Lyme disease to gain access and pay for proper medical treatment, and to prevent the long-term effects of Lyme disease through public awareness and education.
Raffle items include a seat heli-skiing outing with Powderbird Helicopter Skiing, gear from The North Face, Trew, Dynafit, Pistil, Zeal Optics, Beet Performer, and AVEX. Tickets are $5 or five for $20.
The “Second Birthday Bash” will feature music by DJ Guacamole, who entertained at last weekend’s Kiteboarding 4 Cancer event.
Stoked will offer whole bean discounts and launch its Summerstoke blend (“a radiant blend that shines with blueberry overtones, a juicy mouthfeel and a clean finish,” according to information from Stoked). Anniversary pint glasses will be given to the first 100 people in the door.
Stoked will also roll out its new instant coffee, Stoked Stix, foil-wrapped just-add-water medium and dark roast grounds, and will introduce, via photos, the new Stoked Mobile, a 4x4 Sprinter with modular capabilities to serve as a coffee cart or as a mini coffee shop that matches the designs of the Stoked HQ.
Co-owner Jax Mariash Koudele announced that Stoked forged a partnership with The North Face this summer. “Over the past 44 days we have taken an idea with The North Face and made it into a reality at their flagship store in San Francisco.
We have launched a new coffee bar in their mezzanine of their store on 180 Post Street which is right next to Union Square.”
“Our brands share a common mission: to get you outdoors and fuel your adventures,” Koudele said.
Not just a coffee company, Stoked Roasters focuses on the outdoor market by nurturing a community of athletes and adventurists.
