NOTE: All of our premium Arabica coffees are roasted to City+ to Full City roasts, showing minimal-to-no surface oils….we want all of the flavor to stay in the beans until the coffee is ground! Despite the additional descriptors, the first flavor and aroma you'll think of is "COFFEE".

More About WeinMark
WEINLAND is Adam Shearer, Aaron “Rantz” Pomerantz, Rory Brown, Ian Lyles, Paul Christensen. Founded in 2001 by lead vocal/guitar Adam Shearer, the band has been filling Portland venues for three years, and is expanding its audience with it's 2008 release of La Lamentor on Badman Recording and a budding national tour. Described as "brooding folk rock" by Harp Magazine, Shearer explores the dark side of relationships in a proto-Neil Young style that evokes melancholy sparked with moments of optimism for a brighter future.
The tight-knit Portland music scene led Shearer to rub elbows (and sometimes collaborate) with the Portland Cello Project, an unconventional ensemble of cellists playing everything from Guns'n'Roses to Britney Spears to avant garde and classical compositions. Badbeard founder Justin Kagan, a member of the cello project, immediately connected with Shearer, and WeinMark is a product of their musical collaboration.
A reader poll in the Willamette Week recently ranked WEINLAND seventh in a list of "Best New Bands", and the article mentions both their collaboration with Portland Cello Project and WeinMark.
WeinMark, a tribute to the band's on-stage libation of choice, is a blend of select coffees infused with Maker's Mark whiskey. The result is a heady blend of caramel and butterscotch, which the band has been selling at its shows with great success. For every pound of WeinMark sold, $1 is donated to p:ear, a Portland youth-mentoring organization . WeinMark was recently reviewed in Portland's Local Cut music journal by Amy McCullough.
With the success of WeinMark, will there be future collaborations between Badbeard's and the Portland music scene? It's too early to tell, but self-described "little orchestra" Pink Martini seems like a natural!
