Locals were raving about this place, so we stopped in to try it. Definitely glad we did. They are very knowledgeable about coffee. Good atmosphere, very busy shop. A must if in Portland.

Good coffee in a relaxed atmosphere. Really interesting décor and a scientific approach to making the perfect coffee – including scales and weights! Also delicious homemade lemonade – perfect on a hot day while exploring Portland.

My visit was in the afternoon and I wanted coffee but no caffeine. The man behind the counter offered to brew me a decaf Americano so I took him up on it. It was so, so robust and exactly what a cup should be. Not...More
