"Not only is third wave coffee a key part of Portland's heritage, but the cultural influence of the motto 'Keep Portland Weird' has inspired a strong network of independent businesses. We're so excited to get to know you all and use our technology to continue making Portland a place where coffee and community can thrive."

Odeko's product is an all-in-one, smart-operations software platform intended to optimize supply chain solutions. According to Odeko, its software can help cafes cut costs by up to 21% and help reduce carbon emissions by 66% through direct-to-fridge and shop delivery.

Odeko's customer-facing app streamlines cafe operations and enables mobile ordering ahead, for customer and shop owner convenience.

Already popular in Portland, Odeko's vendors here include fan favorites such as Oat-ly, Pacific Foods Barista Series, Ghirardelli Chocolate and many more.PMG PHOTO: JULES ROGERS - Experts from around the nation came to Concourse Coffee to compete in a latte art competition.
