Your support for independent local news is important.

The Source Weekly has been Central Oregon’s locally owned news outlet for over 23 years. We have always been the definition of "support local." Our success in navigating this new world is tied to the success we experience in pulling together for the common good.

Quality local journalism takes a group of dedicated reporters passionate about democracy and open government. This story is the result of our hard work, and in normal times, the result of the support of the advertisers in Central Oregon. In the age of COVID-19, however, that support has taken a hit—but that’s where you come in.

New Cafe Also Does Pour-Over Coffee

Pour-over coffee, and other manual brew methods, are the new French press. Coffee nerds like it because it's pure, controllable and sorta easy to replicate—even at home. You can read more about it in this week's Culture section. There are a number of places in town that offer pour-over: Lone Pine, Thump, Crow's Feet Commons and even (forgive me) Starbucks.
Add Palate, A Coffee Bar to that list.
Palate is a lovely timber-and-corrugated-steel cafe that's moved into the old Maragas Winery building on the corner of Colorado Ave. and Bond St.

Co-owners Jodi Groteboer and Jason Rhodes, who both worked at Portland’s storied Albina Press, opened in early March. Their new shop, which uses Stumptown beans and sells local tea and pastries, should soon have beer and wine available as well as soups.
When I was there Groteboer made me a manual-brew cup using an inverted Aeropress. It was great.
