Field trip will yield coffee, pie and fun

by: SUBMITTED PHOTO - Sign up now for the Feb. 26 field trip to Portland Roasting Co. and Pacific Pie Co.

Even if you don’t drink coffee or eat pie, you’re probably going to love the smells you’ll savor Feb. 26, on the West Linn Adult Community Center’s bus trip to Portland Roasting Co. and Pacific Pie Co.

The first stop will be the Roasting Co. on Southeast Seventh Avenue where we will do a cupping in which the head roaster and coffee educator will walk us through a professional coffee tasting and introduce us to the newly constructed café space.

Following this, we will head to the nearby Pacific Pie Co. for lunch. Even though it’s called a pie company, it’s really a full-service restaurant with an extensive menu.

The Portland eatery was launched in 2009 when husband and wife team Sarah Curtis-Fawley and Chris Powell moved to Portland from Powell’s native Australia. He was homesick for all things Aussie, including meat pies, so she started baking them for him, and a business was born.

If this sounds like a fun trip and you would like to join us, call the WLACC for bus departure time, cost and additional information: 503-557-4704. We are located at 1180 Rosemont Road.
