Stumptown Coffee Roasters is undeniable Portland's most famous coffee roasting company -- with multiple locations all over the city, Stumptown is well-known for a reason -- their coffee is delicious!

Being at Blend Coffee Lounge is like hanging out in your own, comfortable living room -- except with a barista that will make you delicious coffee creations at your every whim! Blend is filled with huge, plush couches and chairs and we're not talking about grungy old coffee house ones that look like they came from someone's basement 20-years ago -- these are places that you actually want to settle into with a good book and a latte for the day. Blend Coffee Lounge serves Portland's famous Stumptown Coffee, so you know that it will be delicious.
Public Domain Coffee doesn't use a lot of bells and whistles to sell their coffee -- because they don't need to. The decor at Public Domain is sparse and modern -- this isn't as much a place to curl up in an oversized chair as it is a place to truly take in your coffee. The baristas are very serious about their method and materials -- you'll often be invited to take a sniff of your grounds before they preform the "pour over" method of brewing you a fresh cup. Don't count on swinging in to Public Domain for a quick cup to-go -- they only offer drink-in here.
Willing to experiment a bit with your coffee selection? Head straight to Barista in the Pearl District of Portland.

Every single cup is made with extreme precision from the highest-quality beans available in Portland and by, who they claim to be, the best baristas in town as well. Barista will happily serve you whatever your regular drink may be, but we strongly suggest that you try something from their signature menu, which changes regularly. Looking for somewhere more comfortable to enjoy your coffee? They have a larger location on Alberta that's lovely for relaxing.
