Topic: From Oregon with Love Tradition OS: PDX great 3rd wave shops (40 lines)
1) From: elaine jarvis
Here in the Mecca of the espresso "third wave" what are the shops that
produce nectar?
---------------
I haven't been reading the list for weeks due to job hunting and other
things...But I have had a chance to visit and revisit many PDX coffee
shops. Here's a list of really, really great shops. I'm tempted to
list where to avoid, but sometimes on a second visit they improve a
%1000. And some former faves are currently in a slump and believe it
or not, I still haven't drank coffee/espresso at every shop in PDX.
Sometimes I'm so buzzed on caffeine I feel like it.
Albina Press
Blue Gardenia
Coffee Plant
Crema
Extracto
Fresh Pot
Jim And Patty's (the original Coffee People and Top Thrill Dragster
aka Black Tiger is a really good espresso shot!)
Ristretto
Stumptown, of course
And in Wa state near Vancouver
Paradise Café
Lava Java
And if you are in the PDX area feel free to join the Meetup group,
P.O.E.T.S. (Portland Oregon Espresso Tasting Society) We visit these
shops as well as others have a grand ol' time drinking shots and
talking coffee.
Mike and Les your offering is so awesome.
