I have been searching and searching fpr a commercial lever in town to patronizeredbeard00 wrote:I would need someone who's local to Portland to confirm this, but when I lived there in 2001, there was a cafe/dessert shop called Palio located in Ladd's Addition that had a lever machine. In the last few months I was there, they switched from Illy to Stumptown. I didn't drink the espresso at the time, but I recall one of the employees mentioning that the owner was a fanatic about the lever machine. Maybe someone can verify or update this...
The address of Palio is:
1996 SE Ladd Ave
Portland, OR 97214-4757
I will say good news about the coffee switch- Stumptown is greatlocal roasted coffee- and a lot fresher than Illy!!
Thanks again I'll let you know soon!
