Ristretto (Italian for ³restricted,² and a term used for the first sweet
burst of espresso) Roasters founder and coffee roaster Din Johnson
handcrafts every batch of beans, roasting them on-site in a vintage Probat
roaster. He will be on hand personally for a tour of the operation! We will
be allowed after hours access to the insider secrets coffee geeks like us
Ristretto roasts coffee every day, and no roasted coffee is kept more than
seven days. The café also features a traditional espresso bar, homemade
baked goods, mid-century furnishings, a rotating roster of modern art, and
free WiFi.
All Ristretto Roasters coffees are medium-roasted, allowing the consumer to
experience the flavors of the coffee (rather than merely the roast). This
can take some persuading, as customers come into the café convinced they
only like the deepest, darkest roast.

Have fun! One day too short a notice to make it over, especially the day
before the 4th.

first not know. And in knowing know I know not. Each Personal enlightenment

Have a good meet, perhaps you could give us a bit more notice next
month.  A little hard to make it on such short notice.

I made the 1st PDX Coffee Meetup. It was held at Ristretto's, which is just
down the street from Jim and Patty Robert's (founders of Coffee People)
coffee shop. I got a nice 8oz latte with a rosetta pulled by a barista
wearing a Threadless Captain Awesome shirt. The turn out was smaller than
our PNWG meeting, but there was next to no notice.  Luckily, I had recovered
from my grand adventure Sunday. I drove to Tacoma and picked up a Faema Due
S single group semi-automatic machine. As soon as I convince my family to
remove the dryer and line dry clothes or I get a new 220 outlet wired in, I
will be learning to pull my own espresso shots. Okay, I still have to get my
Mazzer together, but still... yippee!
