Old topic i know, but proud Mary is an absolute must. Place is just crazy.
And you won't find it on any of the regular lists, but if you're in the area, go to Lionheart. Just people that truly love coffee. Their original location in South Beaverton they don't have a menu and will just do whatever you want. They have about 6 or 7 pourover methods that they'll use. Their new shop in downtown Beaverton is more mainstream but super nice. Clearly put together by a barista that likes their gear. Both of these are my regulars and proud Mary when looking for something a little extra.
Also, when people talk about heart, coava, etc... Their coffee is insanely good, but the cafe itself is ok. I'd stop for a bag and hit up another place for a drink instead.
Talk about your favorite cafes, local barista events, or plan your own get-together.
Of course, and a classy shop it is! I forgot to mention it because I usually go to the roastery shop in Vancouver.keno wrote:There is a Compass Coffee in Portland (funnily enough it is on Vancouver Ave which is in Portland).
