On This Date Last Year…

We posted the Empire Argentina Vacation video.

Empire: Argentina Vacation

I’m pretty sure Tom and Tina decided on Argentina as a destination because Argentina has “Tina” in it, and Tina wears the pants at Empire. That may or may not be how it went down, but Tom Dugan, Aaron Ross, Kevin Porter and Devon Hutchins for SURE went to Argentina and filmed it.

Major Buzz Surrounding Kevin Porter

Buzz. Coffee. GET IT!! I had to recycle this headline, sorry.

Anyway…. Kevin Porter has recently switched things up. He has made the move back home to Chicago and took up a new riding/working gig with Bow Truss Coffee Roasters.

I asked Kevin some questions about all this (along with some random ones), so click below to check them out.

Thanks to David Leep for the photos.


Kevin Porter

Out and about in Long Beach, CA.

January 2012.

Quintin / Intelligentsia

Quintin has teamed up with Intelligentsia coffee for a most unlikely collaboration, curated by BMX’s own Kevin Porter.

The Quintin/Intelligentsia hat can be found here and here.

So now you can buy hats at Intelligentsia, and soon you’ll be able to buy Intelligentsia coffee from Quintin. What a world we are living in.

The story can be found here.

Kevin Porter

Whenever I think of Kevin Porter, I think of coffee. His style also comes to mind. This chill little theBLKLST/QUINTIN edit shows Kevin both drinking coffee and showing off his style. NIIIIICE!

KP / Theus California Dreamin

Our boy Huy Doan sent through this chill edit he whipped up of Kevin Porter and Timmy Theus.

5X5: Kevin Porter

Kevin Porter takes a break to give five answers about five topics. Check it out after the jump.


Kevin Porter

Our boy Andrew Brady cooked up this edit of Kevin Porter for Empire. I think this edit represents Kevin’s style really well. Enjoy!

In addition, TCU actually has a pretty good interview with Kevin too.


I’m really only posting this so I could run that witty post title, but word all over the net is that KP is now sponsored by Intelligentsia Coffee. I have tried said coffee, and can vouch that it is indeed very good. Congrats to KP.

If you missed my Q&A with Kevin regarding his Coffee shop, check that out HERE.


Andrew Brady was kind enough to contribute photos and a write up on the Chicago Seawall spot, which some of you may recognize from past videos and such.

Q&A: KEVIN PORTER & De•li•cious

Kevin Porter recently opened up a coffee shop in Chicago with his wife Chelsea, named De•li•cious Café.

I was stoked and intrigued when I heard about this venture, as it is a departure from the predictable bike shop that you would expect a pro rider to open. Hence, I asked KP some questions about it.
