Since writing about Leala we have noticed not many knew about our pre dawn bakery. Thinking about this what else is there to know? Every day we make ice. Cold brew coffee is sexier to bring to your loved one in a mason jar.

One year we have been working our coffee bar and eight years we have been roasting and delivering by bike. This Thursday we are holding extended hours with very little plans except to hang out with you, come hang out. xo courier

Tuesday a film short will screen at Courier 8/9pm, part of this months artwork. This means late evening coffee. We are told it will be a few short pieces linked with sound.

Leala Humbert, our baker

Sunday, July 10th, 2011

Leala does all bakery/food at Courier’s bar. August first marks the opening of our shop a year ago. We have been roasting coffee for the people of Portland eight years, and in this time we got to know a wonderful person (kind of a nerd) Leala Humbert. In the last year she has worked and worked on beautiful muffins, textury pastry dough, flavorful cakes, and has brought granola and oats to life. Tasty bakery and food are crucial because we cannot drink coffee all day. We love our baker, and nearing our bars anniversary it is important to note the rock stars of Courier. Hands down (with no┬áprejudice at all:) we can say that Leala’s cornmeal pastry, granola bars, muffins and cookies are the best ever. Throughout the last year it is Leala who has done all food creation at Courier, and the girl has put her heart and soul
into it. The housemade everything has gotten better all the time as she has worked passion and vigor into the bakery. Leala truly is a winner and we are very fortunate, delighted and happy that she is with us. Much love.

Above Leala just returning from the Farmers Market. She does at least one market a week, and basically all our shopping. Cherries, kale, strawberry, zucchini, carrot, onion, many items for this weeks menu.

Saturday we opened bar for the first time ever. Thank you friends for your support (and flowers!). I could not be more proud of the staff at Courier for making it happen, and taking that extra step to make Saturdays pop (the quiche, the showing up early!!!). Photos above from our morning- housemade everything, handmade everything. There is more than muffins though, mason jars of cold brew coffee to go. Sweet and Savory hand pies, also.

Thursday evening we invite you to Courier’s art unveiling for July. 6pm. xox
