Portland Stumptown Coffee



Portland was amazing. I'll be posting about my finds over the next week, but suffice it to say, that town knows how to eat. Mix that with cold weather and grey days and I'm in heaven. I loved local roaster Stumptown Coffee. Sure it's hip and all the locations are super cool, but it's just a really really good cup of coffee and it felt more relaxed than either Intelligentsia or Blue Bottle. Plus, no jitters!






I drank it every day and was tempted to buy a bag to brew at home. But I opted not to, so that it would remain a special treat when I visit Portland.

I agree with you--Portland is amazing! I was elated to find so much delicious vegetarian food and vegan bakeries...not to mention the bicycle lanes, street cars, powell's bookstores, live music, trees, museums, mid century modern furniture stores, and stunning bridges. I considered moving there until the San Francisco Bay Area became affordable enough to buy a house. I look forward to more posts about your trip.
