Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Cold Brew Coffee On A Hot Summer Day

iPhone Wednesday 6-24

Picking a subject for Sally’s Challenger’s Choice week is always fun because with 11 categories to choose from pretty much everything I like to photograph fits the bill.  To keep things interesting I try to move through Sally’s list without repeating myself and this month I settled on food photography.  I know this is a bottle of cold brew coffee and not a pretty plate of food but in my family coffee is a food group and Stumptown Coffee Roasters is one of the best.  Plus, this has to be the cutest coffee bottle I’ve ever seen.

Stumptown Coffee Roasters opened in 1999 as a small cafe in Portland, OR with a core group of coffee loving employees devoted to ethical sourcing, local roasting and fantastic cups of coffee.  Their drip coffee and espresso blends are some of my favorites but in the summer Cold Brew tops the list and my milkman delivers it by the carton blended with milk and just a little sugar.  We found these little brown “stubbies” on Father’s Day and Hipstamatic’s shake to randomize function captured the moment using Rudy as the lens and Stand Up as the film.

  1. My mother used to be the only person that I knew who drank cold coffee in the summer. Now it’s more popular. To see it in a bottle seems so twenty-first century. But maybe it isn’t. You still have a milkman. Oh, for those days to return–we haven’t had one since last century (boy, does that sound strange). Hipstamatic really gives the image the vintage feel that makes it seem like an older brand. Happy Photo Challenge.


    1. Cold coffee in the summer is a nice treat and also handy to have along when you’re camping. Fresh coffee in the morning without having to heat up a stove or fire and water. 🙂 “Last Century” does sound strange but appropriate for a lot of things now…


  2. I certainly did a double-take on THIS! I was already to bring out the chips and dips to enjoy a drink with you when “coffee” caught my eye. What an interesting marketing tool, my son would LOVE it, lol 🙂


      1. This is blowing my mind and somewhere I’m DEFINITELY going to have to put on the “must do” list. I’m secretly hoping Hubby’s next project is in the States as it will make it SO much easier to visit all this interesting places! 🙂

  3. Lisa, you have a milkman??? Very cool. I’ll be in LA (Pasadena) next week, so I may have to look for this, even though I’m not really a coffee drinker unless it’s got some added ingredients. Tea is more my tipple. But this would be fun to try.
