SCENE: Saturday morning at Stumptown Coffee Roasters, Downtown Portland, Oregon, October 15, 2011
The guy in the background (bahahaha)…that was a fluke.
In fact, I was taking a photo of the Chemex trio standing at the ready.
“Those are made in my hometown,” I boasted. “Pittsfield, Massachusetts.”
"Oh, those are made in Massachusetts? Right on."
Instant street cred.
Then I noticed the barista’s fashionable bracelet—she’s Pittsfield Proud, too!
