Rose City Pepperheads - Tigard, Oregon
Susan McCormick, owner and jelly artisan, is the brain behind Rose City Pepperheads. Susan has always loved a good sauce - especially a spicy good sauce. In the 90's she began making her own pepper jellies and soon saw how incredibly versatile pepper jellies are in all kinds of cooking and grilling, as well as making a killer base for so many delicious sauces! In 1997 Susan began Rose City Pepperheads and has been introducing Portlanders to sassy spicy jellies ever since.
Smitten Artisan Truffles - Forest Grove, Oregon
Vanessa Holden is the creative genius behind Smitten Artisan Truffles, a company passionate about culinary exploration through chocolate. Finding unique sources of inspiration from Oregon and beyond, these small batch hand finished chocolates tempt with flavors and textures consciously made to pair well with food and wine. Created in signature custom molds, each truffle design is meant to reflect the beauty of chocolate in its many diverse forms. Most importantly, chocolate is a platform that can be used to elevate the senses – by experimenting with exotic flavors or bringing back a sense of comfort in the familiar.
Caravan Coffee - Newberg, Oregon
More than 20 years ago Caravan Coffee’s founder Pete Miller bought an old Cape Cod house down the street from George Fox University here in Newberg Oregon. At the time he had no idea that a little café in his garage would take him around the world and bring the world of coffee to my community.
Peru Femenino Coffee: While women have always been crucial to coffee production in Peru, men traditionally held economic power. In 2004, 464 female coffee producers in Peru united to change this dynamic and take a step toward empowerment. They decided to separate their coffee production from men to gain visibility and a voice inside their community. Working in partnership with OPTCO, they developed a market for women-produced coffee to serve as an important vehicle for social change and the empowerment of poor, marginalized women coffee farmers. Since then, the Café Femenino movement now includes thousands of women farmers from nine countries across the world.
