Core Coffee Grand Opening and Benefit for Apple of His Eye Charity

Festivities Showcase Unique Items in Family-Friendly Location

Core Coffee (formally known as Origin’s Coffee, Tea & Desserts) is celebrating its grand opening with great food, drinks and support for local businesses and community organizations on September 8th from 7am-6pm in their newly renovated, family friendly café at 600 NW Eastman Parkway, 97030 in the Gresham Town Fair Shopping Center. The first 30 people receive a FREE drink, up to $5-dollar value. Customers also get the chance to nominate and vote for the TOP 5 Most Inspiring People in Portland Metro who will be receiving Gold Macarons worth $20 each.

Core Coffee is inspired by possibilities and passionate about the creative process. “We recognize the coffeehouse as a powerful tool for our society and exist to fuel inspiration, connection and innovation in Gresham. We believe in the strength of community and are excited to serve the Gresham community.”, Dianne Faligowski, Owner.

The above ideal led to the creation of the CORE Membership, where local professionals can secure 10% off food and drinks, free printing, faxing, and scanning, iPad usage and space for presentations. Signing up for this perk is free, and showcases Core Coffee’s commitment to be a place to fuel the doers, creators and changemakers. “As a professional myself, who regularly has to work with a mobile office, I know how difficult it can be, which is why I created this space to help people thrive in building their lives and careers.”, Dianne Faligowski, Owner.

Core Coffee will also provide samples of the many new menu items such as locally sourced macarons, high quality bubble teas that are crafted from premium loose-leaf tea, kombucha, and coco-matcha drizzled ice cream, as well as healthier options including organic acai bowls, and avocado, banana, or cucumber toasts.

Perhaps the largest aspect of the grand-opening is celebrating the CORE value of supporting local nonprofit organizations through various drives, fundraising efforts and events. This month showcases Apple of His Eye Charity, whose mission is to help orphans and widows around the world. Core Coffee is encouraging customers to donate to this organization by matching each donation dollar for dollar, up to $500.

Core Coffee is open from 7am to 6pm daily. For more information, please visit www.corecoffee.net or contact Dianne Faligowski at 503.998.6169
