DANICA & EDDYE BORGESE love coffee. They spent the last decade or so drinking it up and down the East Coast (where they’re from), and have consumed a record amount since moving to Portland in 2013. Making a Portland coffee zine is a slightly overcaffeinated dream come true, and they hope you’ll enjoy reading it as much as they enjoyed making it.


WHAT’S A ZINE? /'zēn/ZEEN: An independently published booklet, usually reproduced via photocopier and folded and stapled. Zines represent a rebellion from mainstream publishing. Portland has one of the strongest zine scenes because of its progressive spirit and DIY ethos.


WHAT’S A PORTLAND? Portland is a friendly city filled with interesting, creative people who made this zine just for you. It’s a place for anyone who likes anything: From craft beer to homemade bitters, dormant volcanoes to 500+ food carts, Portland has it all.

CHECK OUT OTHER TITLES IN THE PORTLAND ZINES SERIES! Zines in this series include A Feminist’s Guide to Beer Drinking, Get Out, Portland Pizza Guide, 34 Things to Do in the Rain, Stand Here and Look Up, Riding in the Rain, Maximum Portland, P is for Portland, Portland People: A User’s Guide to Life and Style and more.
