Early riser or wanting to be? Love premium coffee and engaging conversation? Then please join us for a weekly re-occurring coffee and conversation starting at the Aspen Trail!

HIKE DESCRIPTION:
We all meet at the Aspen Trail, I share coffee, and we hangout for the first 15 minutes, then depart promptly at 7:15.

  1. Head West on Aspen Trail toward Wildwood Trail
  2. Continue right onto Wildwood Trail
  3. Turn left onto the Birch Trail
  4. Arrive at location: Birch Trail parking lot!
  5. Turn around and moonwalk in reverse arriving back at the Aspen entrance at ~8:25.

WHAT TO BRING:

  • A thermos or cup for coffee
  • Water bottle
  • Appropriate clothing based on weather
  • A thirst for premium coffee and good conversation
  • No dogs allowed at this time
  • Hiking poles are optional but not a bad idea to save your joints on the trek down the hill.

BREW PROCESS:
I use a Chemex with about (~80g) of coffee per batch with a medium/fine grind, I heat natural spring water (PH ~7.5) using my Zojirushi water boiler to ~208degF, pre-wet the filter, fill up the top of the Chemex with water and stir the grounds into a frothy brew. Pouring about 2 batches into the insulated carafes to share! Chemex is a pour-over method which is great for larger groups and offers the right flavor profile!

ABOUT YOUR HOST:
Daniel: Hi! I’m 30, born and raised in Oregon, and I’m a blossoming digital artist, hiker, trail runner, social entrepreneur, former engineer, former social worker, and current IT professional at an Oregon non-profit. I’ve lead/attended 100’s of Meetup events (since July 2021) and plan to continue well into the future!

I also have my own Meetup group called the Portland Digital Dabblers for anyone who is interested in digital art and meeting for coffee on Saturday’s 🤓☕🎨

COVID-19 Guidelines: Please don’t come if you or anyone you were in contact with or had COVID-19 symptoms in last 14 days.

NOTE: If you are in the going list, and decide you are not going to attend, please update your RSVP to “Not going”. That said, this hike has a longer introductions period to make it easier for people who might be running 5 or 10 mins late but we will always leave promptly at 7:15. Being an out-and-back also gives folks the option to turn around if you need to depart early for any reason. I also reserve the right to turn anyone away for poor behavior, so please be nice :).

Disclaimer: Hike leaders are simply volunteers and try their best to make it a fun experience for everyone, but assume no liability for any injury, loss or damage. Every PHMG member is required to read our group’s waiver, and signing up or attending an event implies your approval.
