May 28, 2016
Today is a historic day in Gladstone History. Today a beloved landmark found a new home.

If you have ever driven down Arlington over the last 4 years, you probably noticed a small skeleton on a pirate ship. The family that owned that amazing pirate ship decided it was time to set sail, and we are incredibly excited to have relocated it to Happyrock Coffee! Come see the awesome Gladstone Pirate Ship and drink a some coffee at the same time!

Are You The Best Coffee Roaster In North America? Are You The Best Coffee Roaster In North America?

This is a huge question. Are you the best coffee roaster in North America? North America is a huge place with many coffee roasters. It includes the United States as well as Canada. So I decided to go for it.

Hello, My Name Is Lisa Hello, My Name Is Lisa

This was a blind taste test. They assured me each coffee would get its own code and go to a panel of judges over the course of 3 days. Judges drank many coffees over many hours during those three days. There were National and International Coffee celebrities here, previous Golden Bean winners, World Barista Cup winners, and me and my teeny tiny coffee…

River Intake Pump Station (RIPS)- Demolition Now Complete!

from the Lake Oswego Tigard Water Partnership Newsletter
“River Intake Pump Station (RIPS) – demolition now complete!
A significant milestone was reached earlier this week with the last piece of the old intake removed from the river! Divers worked with the crane operator and crews to remove the bottom levels of the intake, and said farewell to the old structure.
This week, crews also removed the stair tower and disassembled the turbidity curtain. Early next week, the large red crane will be removed from the site.
With demolition complete, this marks the beginning of the site restoration. Over the coming weeks, crews will begin preparing for curb placement, asphalt removal, stone column installation and final landscaping.
Thank you to Gladstone, West Linn, Lake Oswego and Tigard mayors for attending a special tour of the new RIPS this week!
In observance of Labor Day, no work will take place Monday, September 7.

Divers remove the last pieces of the structure in the river. The curtain helps control turbidity in the work area
