Happyrock Coffee Is The Ultimate Anti-corporate Coffee Shop In Mt. Hood Territory

The next time you need a caffeine fix, head out to Gladstone to Happyrock Coffee Roasting

Happyrock, a play on the name of Gladstone, has been roasting coffee there for nearly 20 years. In that time they've won numerous awards including top-three finishes in best coffee competitions at the Oregon State Fair. It's of no wonder when you learn of their philosophy. They hand pick their coffee varieties from farms that grow the beans responsibly and sustainably. They then roast the beans in-house. It's a fun process to watch, as the roaster sits on the floor of the coffee shop and is surrounded by large bags of beans from throughout the coffee-growing world. 

The company is also a big proponent of sourcing their ingredients locally. Their milk comes direct from a dairy in Mulino, for instance. 

We had the opportunity to sample a few drinks. I'm a mocha drinker myself, and really fell in love with the German Chocolate Mocha. Also awesome are the lavender mocha and Jamie's favorite, which includes a fantastic honey drizzle on top. Any of the three make for an ideal way to shake off the morning blahs.

Be sure to check out the fun collection of Gladstone related merchandise in the shop, as owner Lisa likens herself to be the unofficial historian of the community. If you're into heavy metal, then show up on Fridays for Heavy Metal and Knitting. I'm pretty sure the name explains it all.

Happyrock Coffee Roasters is located at the intersection of Dartmouth and Portland Avenues in Gladstone. You can also find them online and on Facebook. Once you get your coffee, head over to Meldrum Bar Park and enjoy a gorgeous spot along the Willamette River.
