Erik Gordon runs his coffee shop out of his van that he also lives in. By why? In a nutshell, Erik is living his life the way he wants to. It’s a movement — not a trend — that has been sweeping over the outdoor industry. For Erik, it all started in Breckenridge where he sold his coffee at science lookout points — why didn’t I think of that! Not for long though as the Forest Service wasn’t all giggles over his new venture. He drove his way to Portland where he fired his brew machine back up and launched Carabiner Coffee.
Inspired by life, Erik is all about good vibes and this is transparent in all that he does. So when you see the the vintage seafoam blue VW rolling through town, don’t hesitate to flag it down for a cup of adventure.
