Gladstone’s Favorite Cup of Joe: Happyrock Coffee Roasting Company

By Brandon Buchanan, October 24, 2018

“A bad day with coffee is better than a good day without it”

When Oregon’s fall and winter arrive with grey and rainy days, there’s nothing better than curling up with a hot cup of coffee and a good book! Oregon is full of amazing coffee roasters, and Gladstone OR is home to one of the best. Happyrock Coffee was built by Kerry Conboy and her family in November of 1999. They had a vision of creating high quality coffee in a small town atmosphere.

Happyrock Coffee is a small batch artisan coffee roastery located in downtown Gladstone. They offer signature blends and single origin coffee. Their beans and roasts have won multiple awards including: 2010 Best Coffee in Oregon for “Storm of the Black Bear,” 2011 Best Coffee in Oregon for “Darkness of Divinity,” and 2014 Finalist in the SCAA’s NW Regional Brewers Cup with “The Modern Italian.”

Their beans can be found at restaurants, cafes, grocers, and farmers markets throughout Oregon. Their coffee shop hosts fun community events like Heavy Metal Knitting from 1-3pm every Friday!

Stop in for a cup of joe Monday-Saturday 7am-3pm, Sunday 8am-3pm or visit their online shop to brew that perfect cup at home

Principal Broker

As a Portland native and full-time Real Estate Broker since 2006 I have seen the city develop and change so much! I have helped hundreds of families buy and sell homes. I have the experience and local know-how to help you make the best possible decisions. I love the real estate business and find success through open communication, a good sense of humor and being accessible to your needs. There are so many questions to answer – How is the market? When do I buy? Where do I buy? When should I sell? How do I sell? Give me a chance – sit down with me, I’m happy to get to know you better and answer these questions in a way that is tailored to you. There is a home for everyone, and I would be delighted to help you find yours. Prior to my real estate career, I followed my curiosities about life and lived out some amazing memories. From commercial fishing in Alaska, deckhand work at a marina in Florida, to bartending in Aspen, my love of travel and meeting new people has never ceased. These experiences have shaped who I am today; I bring the skills I’ve learned, the ability to connect with people of all backgrounds, and some incredible stories to every transaction. My clients always come first, but if I am not working you could find me coaching my son’s basketball team, golfing, snowboarding, camping, gardening, or somewhere sunny and warm near the beach. Portland, Oregon is a one-of-a-kind place and establishing roots here is one of the greatest privileges. I am truly passionate about this area and once you go on this journey with me, I’m sure you will fall in love and will want to put down roots here, too. I’d love to earn your business, so call me today!
