As journalists around America continue to cover Stumptown’s newly minted investment partnership with TSG, we’re provided with yet more antidote to the clod-like and deeply biased “coverage” from Esquire’s popular blog, “Food For Men Who Are So Masculine They Want To Make Sure You Know They Are Men – Shut Up, I’ll Kick Your Ass, Wuss”.
An essential Stumptown update today, including an interview with Duane Sorenson, via Oliver Strand and the NYT Diner’s Journal:
“It looks like a big year for Stumptown Coffee Roasters. The Portland, Ore., company, known for getting some of the finest coffee in the world and serving it with rock ‘n’ roll flair, plans to open two coffee bars in Brooklyn, add a bottling facility to its roaster in Red Hook for its cold-brewed coffee and, Duane Sorenson, Stumptown’s founder, says the company will try to open roasters in Chicago and San Francisco.
All of this is possible because of an investment from TSG Consumer Partners, a private equity firm that has invested in several successful brands”.
