AMAZING coffee, we're real glad we stumbled upon it on our last trip to Portland! The decoration is not 100% that's the only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars, the staff, service and coffee was perfect.

<3 Try to stop here <3 Been here a number of times now and interestingly, I have not had the coffee (I'm on a tea-kick)! However, everyone who has been with me has had the coffee and they love it! I like that they have Standard Baking Co treats.

We visited Thanksgiving weekend on the recommendations of friends in the area. OK, it was 8:15 in the morning but that's when most people drink coffee. The guy behind the counter completed ignored us, wouldn't respond to us so we left. How is this place in business? There are many great coffee shops in Portland with great coffee and great service. We walked out so I can't speak to the coffee but the service was the worst.

we stumbled upon this place while headed to dinner at 555... absolutely coffee geek heaven - equipment of all shapes and sizes, and excellent coffee. Yum. Wouldn't be out of place in San Fran or Brooklyn. Truly artisanal coffee, made with love.

Tried the tower shot, a super smooth iced "concentrate" made by dripping cold water through a big beaker of ground coffee and collecting what flows through. Excellent. And for contrast the lime cardamom latte which was surprisingly good despite (or because of) its resemblance to coffee with Tom kha gai minus the chicken.

Super friendly and plenty of gadgets to entertain the coffee or lab geek.
