Laurelwood Brewing Bottles
Organic Portland Roast Espresso Stout

This is the second year in which Laurelwood Brewing has collaborated with Portland Roasting Coffee Company to create Organic Portland Roast Espresso Stout. Supplies of the beverage sold out quickly last year, warranting a 30% increase in volume production this year.

Organic Portland Roast Espresso Stout features a blend of organic Ethiopian and Sumatran coffees directly sourced through Portland Roasting’s Farm Friendly Direct program, and specially selected for the dark ale by Laurelwood’s head brewer, Chad Kennedy.

“We’ve created the perfect marriage of stout and espresso in this year’s Organic Portland Roast Espresso Stout,” said Kennedy. “As the name implies, the beer is bold, yet the flavor subtleties imparted by the espresso make it very complex.”

Available through early spring, or until supplies last, Organic Portland Roast Espresso Stout is sold in 22-oz bottles at retailers in Oregon and Washington, including selected Fred Meyer, Whole Foods and New Seasons stores.

Schaerer Coffee Vito

Schaerer Ltd. is launching the Coffee Vito, a further development in the line of successful Schaerer Coffee Factory products. Like its predecessor model, the Schaerer Coffee Vito is available in two different versions, using fresh milk or powdered milk. The new design features an attractive control panel, larger bean containers and Aquaflex, an added function making it simple to switch between the water tank and a mains water connection. Schaerer Coffee Vito is ideal for small cafés and restaurants, offices and vending stations. The result is an easy-care, flexible, fully automatic coffee machine just 33 centimetres wide that offers up to 15 different beverages plus all the advantages you would expect from a larger, high-capacity coffee machine. Special attention was given to optimizing the interface between machine and user: a well-proportioned, individually programmable touch screen provides clear prompts so your beverage turns out just the way you want it at the press of a button. The large coffee bean containers, each with a capacity of 1.1 kg, mean you need to refill less often, making operation less dependent on personnel. Schaerer Coffee Vito is also available with Aquaflex, a switch that lets you alternate between the water tank and a mains water connection, so the Coffee Vito is ready to go to work in every situation. The Schaerer Coffee Vito is available in a version using powdered milk as well as in the classical fresh milk version. Cold, fresh milk may be supplied by Cup & Cool (combined milk fridge and cup warmer), My Fridge (milk cooler) or Under Counter Milk (the space-saving under-counter milk cooling solution). Both versions can be combined with Choco or Twin Choco, the fully automatic systems for one or two kinds of chocolate powder, allowing an even bigger choice of beverages.
