It’s happening again. For the second year in a row, Portland Roasting has been asked to serve coffee at the prestigious Academy Awards ceremony at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles, California.

Portland Roasting will serve Goose Hollow Blend (Equal parts organic Mexico and a pulped natural Catuai from Brazil) and their Decaf Vienna backstage at the events, and as PRC’s press release aptly puts it, “fueling all presenters, media, and winners for the evening.”

In Portland, the company will host an Oscar Party at their fresh headquarters, The Cupping Room, at 340 SE 7th Avenue.

Come and join us at The Cupping Room for a viewing party. You get to enjoy a full evening of drinks, food, and Oscar fun – and your ticket donation ($25) goes to funding water projects in Honduras. You can even take home a bag of the same coffee being enjoyed by the stars! Black tie not required, but not discouraged.

Airing the evening of Sunday, March 2nd from the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles, the Academy Awards will honor the best films and performances from 2013. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has put on the award ceremony since 1929 as a yearly celebration of the year’s best work in film.

“Returning to the Oscars is a huge thrill for us” said Mark Stell, managing partner and co-founder of Portland Coffee Roasting. “We’re proud to be able to support all of these fine performers and to keep them fueled up for the long and exciting night.”

Portland Roasting will be providing their Goose Hollow blend along with a Swiss Water Process® Vienna Decaf. The Swiss Water Process® means that caffeine is removed from the beans using only water, providing a chemical free full-flavored decaf coffee.
