Weed and coffee—the Portland Speedball.

from https://www.wweek.com/restaurants/201...eine-pairings/

Welcome to the Brave New World of Cannabis and Caffeine Pairings
Weed and coffee—the Portland Speedball.


Coffee and weed: they rule. It's a pairing that goes back to the early days of coffeehouse culture in this country, from the beatniks in the '50s to the Berkeley hippies hanging out at the original Peet's Coffee in the late '60s. Today it's not uncommon for baristas to receive a sweet nug or pre-roll in the tip jar, and they're more than happy to return the favor with delicious drinks that play nicely with various buds and extracts.

Portland is one of the few places in the world where you can legally do this, with coffee bars and dispensaries chilling out in just about every neighborhood. Here are four ways to pair coffee and weed across the city without having to get in your car.

Pairing 1: Orange Cookies pre-roll from TreeHouse Collective & Alma Chocolate mocha

A chill little Kerns pairing starts at Alma Chocolate (140 NE 28th Ave., 503-517-0262, almachocolate.com), which sells the most chocolate-forward mocha in Portland. It combines Alma's dark drinking chocolate with a deep, limbic-system hit from the Spella espresso base. It is a real treat.

Then wander your happy ass a few blocks to TreeHouse Collective (2419 NE Sandy Blvd., 503-894-8774, pdxtreehouse.com), which is probably my favorite shop on Sandy's Wacky Tobacky Road stretching eastward to the Grotto. As recommended by the shop folks, pick up a half-gram pre-roll of Orange Cookies. This hybrid of Orange Juice and Girl Scout Cookies makes for a subtly obvious pairing choice, with citrus flavors in the terpenes that play nicely with that velvety chocolate mocha. The result is a nice uplift from the J and a pleasing Christmas candy-orange linger on the ol' taste buds.

Yeah....sounds like the plan!!! Often times I'll crush up a bud and put in drip coffee. No matter how you do it, coffee & cannabis....can't go wrong with that one!!

We always called it the "poor mans' speedball". Even though thinking about it, I'm not sure if it would be more or less expensive than a real speedball...

A Perfect Day of Beer and Cannabis Pairings
From waking and baking to dessert after dinner—we've got your chillest day off ever mapped out.
Any true degenerate knows that beer and weed are the cornerstones of a successful day off. It's easy to just grab whatever is sitting in your fridge and pack a bong with whatever is mixed in your grinder, but with some light planning you can maximize your enjoyment throughout the day.

For the guy that said he could not find good buds of Durban Poison in PDX area, that is what I have found as well. Few have good (if any) Durban. I got a Q-oz from D e a n z on Sandy that was stellar. They have not had it in since Feb. though. O/w I would buy more!

I've long called a double espresso & a joint a "hippie speedball", i look forward to one every saturday morning. nowadays i find it's better done with a double espresso & two dabs.
