We spoke to Jon Feldman of Stumptown Coffee Roasters located in Red Hook. Their facility flooded with 5 feet of water that destroyed pounds of green coffee, the central roaster, documents, paper goods, and more. Stumptown Coffee and other local Red Hook businesses are banding together to determine the best course of action to rebuild the community.
“Red Hook has kind of put itself on the map not only for food and beverage businesses, but all sorts of small businesses. So people are coming together… we had a meeting the other night to strategize about the best route to get the word out that people are struggling here and we are going to need some help.” — Jon Feldman of Stumptown Coffee Roasters
