Coffee Shops and Schools Around the State

As the school year heats up and the weather cools down, Around the State has business announcements on things that keep us awake (coffee!) and alert (school!).

Several new coffee shops recently opened their doors:
  • A Dutch Bros. coffee stand opened in Cave Junction. Grants Pass Daily Courier, 9/21/2011

  • Antlers Espresso, a coffee shop, opened in La Grande. The Observer, 9/21/2011
  • The Arbor Lodge, a coffee and community space offering Coava coffee, Foxfire tea, and Nuvrei pastries, opened in north Portland. The Oregonian, 9/19/2011
And we've also got a new school and education center:
  • The Coos Bay Boat Building Center, Oregon's first wooden boat-building school, will reopen in October. It first opened in 2009, but soon closed after city engineers discovered the dock was structurally unsound. The World, 9/12/2011
  • The Eastern Oregon Higher Education Center in Hermiston is nearing completion. A joint venture of Blue Mountain Community College, Eastern Oregon University, and the city of Hermiston, the nearly $10-million, 22,000-square-foot building features 14 general purpose classrooms, science labs, a testing center, a conference room, and administration space. East Oregonian, 9/9/2011
