Gaucho alumni collaborate to support Theater Program at El Cerrito High

Adorn & Flourish now carrying Gauchos’ Coffee Shop Blend and Spotlight on El Cerrito Mugs
    Inspired by the Fall Theater Showcase piece “Coffee Shop Pantomine”, ECHS Supporters of the Theater Arts,  worked with Mike McLaughlin, ECHS ’57, to roast coffee  for an extended ‘engagement’ to support the theatre program.

Mike and his wife and colleague, Barbara Marsicano McLaughlin (ECHS ’68) are Gauchos.  Born and raised in Kensington, Mike McLaughlin taught at Helms, Crespi, Kennedy and Portola before starting McLaughlin Coffee.     Gauchos Coffee Shop Blend is based on McLaughlin’s Max’s blend.  Coffee is $10 for a 12-ounce bag.

Not a coffee drinker? Buy one of our “Spotlight on El Cerrito” mugs, a simple design, perfect for El Cerrito alumni.  The two-toned ceramic 13 oz mugs feature a graphic of a stage spotlight illuminating the words “El Cerrito”.  Combined they make wonderful hostess gifts, employee appreciation gifts for our El Cerrito residents.

Both are carried at “Adorn & Flourish” at 7027 Stockton Avenue, near Ashbury in El Cerrito, 367-8548.  Adorn & Flourish is owned by Kensington native and ECHS alum Kate Peterson.  Kate performed in ECHS productions like Pajama Game and others and is an EC resident with family members currently attending ECHS, and all proceeds benefit the school program.  The store carries jewelry, accessories, plants and items for the home created by local craftswomen. 

You can support local artisans and the ECHS theater program by shopping at the store.  Not in the area? Contact echscoffee@att.net, to have the items shipped for a nominal charge. Additionally, feel free to mail a tax deductible donation to ECHS Supporters of the Theater Arts, PO BOX 2376 El Cerrito CA 94530.
