Meet Your Baristas

Kushi, Lead Barista

When Kushi isn’t serving up pupuccinos or dialing in the espresso machine at Java Hound, she is performing as an actor and singer around town!

Kushi initially came to Portland five years ago for college and stayed for the vibrant arts community, proximity to the mountains and ocean, and cup after cup of fine Portland coffee.

She has a knack for names and a love of lavender chai, pit bulls, snowboarding, and every Thai restaurant in the city. She has spent many summers leading backpacking trips, so the next time you’re here for a cup of coffee, let Kushi help you plan your next outdoor adventure!

Ryan, Barista

Ryan is a native Oregonian from Ashland, but has lived in Portland since 2005. He is a pastry chef with a degree from the Oregon Culinary Institute.

In addition to making delicious lattes and cappuccinos, he also pursues voice over work and acting. In his free time, Ryan enjoys spending time at home with his beautiful wife Jen, and his darling Keeshond puppy Tali.
