We first off want to say a HUGE thank you to each and every one of you. We cannot thank you enough for helping us keep coffee flowing, and our roaster warm as we all adapted to the new normal. However, while we have loved and appreciated being able to connect with you online and via our new local delivery program the last few months, it’s not even close to the same as being able to see you in person!
Which is why we are so excited to be able to reopen the Caffe (with adjusted service and hours)
You may notice a few adjustments to our service as we reopen, in order to keep all of us safe and caffeinated:
Updated hours! For the time being, we will be open from 8a-2p, Monday-Friday. Any adjustments to the hours will be posted here as well as on Instagram and Facebook.
Due to the size of our cafe, and in order to maintain proper distance, we will be stationed at a table at the door to take orders and payment. At this time, we will only be accepting cashless forms of payment.
Our outdoor seating will be temporarily unavailable, as we will be unable to easily and consistently keep them sanitized between customers.
SEE YOU SOON!
While somethings may have changed, the love we have for our community remains. We are so grateful to be able to continue to serve authentic Italian coffee, supply you with beans for home, and craft thoughtful connections, however that may be. Thank you for your continued support and your understanding as we adapt. We can’t wait to see you on Monday!
Spell Café stands in Solidarity in the fight for Racial Equality and the absolute end to police brutality.
We encourage you to speak out, learn more, and if you’re able, donate to organizations engaged in anti-racist work [BLM, Don’t Shoot PDX, NAACP]. Together we can make change. We’re actively reflecting how we can do this better and are always open to feedback. We will continue to listen, learn, and find sustained ways to contribute to the movement for social justice.
Our mission has always been to cultivate and foster genuine community connection. It has been tough not being able to see you in our caffè these last few months. The spirit of Spella Caffè has always been to offer a safe place for all. A place to feel welcomed, connected, encouraged, and inspired. There’s truly nothing more we love than to commune with you over the espresso machine and nerd out about coffee, trips to Italy, music, you name it!
Community connection is vital to our health and wellbeing. We still want to be able to be of service to you in this way, even while the caffè may be closed.
Please feel free to connect with us with any thoughts you’d like to share. <3
We’d like to start with an enormous THANK YOU to our friends and family for all of the love and support you’ve emailed, posted and shared. We miss seeing all of you, and it truly helps to keep our spirits up to hear how you’re doing! Please keep sending them!
We have some updates on our hours at the caffe, as well as new products available to you while we all do our part and work from home.
As of now, we feel it is in all of our best interests to close our caffe for the foreseeable future. We hope to reopen after the “remain in place” order is lifted. This is for the safety of our staff as well as our customers. Unfortunately, our caffe is too small to maintain adequate social distancing. We will be posting updates on projected timelines as we know more.
As mentioned in our previous blog post, we are still going strong at the roastery! We are maintaining all online orders with no interruption in production.
We have FREE local deliveries available for our Portland friends, and are shipping coffee all across the country which you can find here.
In addition, we have added digital gift cards to our store! If you’d like to purchase gifts for friends and family you can do so via this link: Online Store Gift Cards!
*Please note, these gift cards are only for our online store (beans and products available on this website) and cannot be used for in store purchases at our caffe.
Those of you here in Portland interested in purchasing gift cards for use at our downtown caffe (once we reopen) you can find those here: Caffe Gift Cards! Whether its that first cup of post-quarantine coffee you’ve been longing for, or finally buying one of our Spella travel mugs, these gift cards are a perfect way to ensure you’re ready to go when we are all back in action.
