  • Coconuts Take Center Stage: Health craze in full effect

    Recently coconuts resurfaced with a healthier profile spurring a health-conscious coconut frenzy that’s hit the shelves of Bend grocery stores in a big way.
      Back in the 1960s Americans’ mainstream exposure to coconut products was limited to diabetes-inducing pina colada mix and theater popcorn drippings. Recently coconuts resurfaced with a healthier profile spurring a health-conscious coconut frenzy that’s hit the shelves of Bend grocery stores in a big way. Newport Market grocery manager Joe Anzaldo remembers ordering a pallet of coconut water for the store a few years ago, thinking it would do well, but wound up giving cases of it away. It was just a little too soon for the Bend audience, but now he sells tons of the electrolyte-packed drinks.

    There are now dozens of distillers in Bend, working on homemade systems, made of tanks, hoses and pipes attached with couplers from local hardware stores.
      There is nothing amateur about James Wilson’s* distilling operation, which he runs out of his modest, comfortable home surrounded by a view-blocking 10-foot fence. A hose runs through the doggie door in his living room, draining condensed water onto the grass.
  • The Artists Next Door: Keeping It Local with Etsy

    The online marketplace gives readers the chance to understand the artists’ inspirations and peruse hundreds of portfolio pieces.
      Human anatomy printed on vintage dictionary pages. Cast iron horses jockeyed by real beetles. Earrings made of artificial teeth. The online wonder of Etsy is clearly not for the aesthetic conservative. It is, however, the first place to go to quickly find something specific, like a birdhouse made from wine corks and stones collected from local vineyards and rivers. Shoppers torn between the efficiency of online shopping and keeping dollars close to home are now turning to this virtual bazaar showcasing $61.9 million in handmade and vintage treasures, more and more since its inception in June 2012.
  • Pint Sized: For some craft brewers, smaller is better

    Nano brewing provides a market test without losing ones’ proverbial shorts.
      It’s the classic entrepreneur’s dilemma – how to turn a passion into profits. It’s a question that many homebrewers are apparently pondering. For industrious home brewers wanting to test the waters of production with an investment in the $5K - $25K range instead of the minimal $50K involved in starting a larger brewery, nano brewing provides a market test without losing ones’ proverbial shorts. According to “The Great Nanobrewery List: From CA to MA,” from Hess Brewing in San Diego, there are 84 U.S. nano breweries in operation and an additional 51 still in the planning stages. Founder Mike Hess counts an average of two new nano breweries a week contacting him.
