If you walk into the Wet Planet shop on a quiet weekday afternoon, you may be surprised to find a group crowded around the espresso machine, craning their necks for a better view of the perfect milk foaming technique. While our focus at Wet Planet is centered on whitewater and outdoor adventure, we also have a passion for fueling adventure with high-quality locally-sourced food and drinks. The Wet Planet espresso bar is the best way to start your day of adventure off right, whether you find yourself on the river, mountains, trails, or curled up with a good book!
We take pride in making quality espresso. We source our beans from 10 Speed Coffee in Hood River, Oregon, who emphasize quality beans roasted in micro batches for superior flavor and aroma. We use top of the line Italian espresso equipment, and our baristas are trained on how to stay true to the roots of good espresso making.
You can also find locally blended teas from Good Medicine Tea in Hood River. Good Medicine Tea is a small family-owned tea company who builds their teas out of organic, fair trade products. They are bringing rich flavors to the Gorge from around the world with farmer direct relationships. Their own line of herbal wellness teas will nourish you, and house blends like Warm Hugs and Gorge Sunrise are sure to make your day a little brighter. You can also find high-quality classics such as match, yerba mate, and spicy chai tea served here.
No espresso bar is complete without quality pastries, so we stock goodies from White Salmon Baking Co. From almond biscotti perfect for dipping, to flaky and buttery croissants, to massive cookies and perfectly toasted bagels, the espresso bar has no shortage of choices to start your day.
