It seems as though every corner you turn in Portland, you can find a cute and hip coffee shop. It is difficult to narrow down the best, and you need weeks to visit them all, but here is a list of what coffee shops we are loving right now!
Dapper & Wise Coffee Roasters
Dapper & Wise aims to roast the best coffees they cand find, and always want to invent new ways to treat their employees and coffee producers better, provide the tastiest coffees and beverages, bee nice to everyone, and have fun. They like to say they are coffee roasters and humans. Dapper and Wise is located on the heart of Division Street on the corner of SE Division. With large windows, when the sun is shining, Dapper & Wise is met with incredible light inside. The Dapper & Wise aesthetic is beautiful, with open space, and simple blue chairs and white tables. They have an extensive drink menu with a variety of specialty drinks that you should definitely try your first time in the shop. The employees are friendly and willing to answer any questions!
3158 SE Division St.
Barista started by serving the greatest coffees from roasters all over the country but began to wonder if they could do the same thing. So, they took well-sourced and high-quality green coffee to create their own roast style, and they now roast and wholesale their own coffee, along with serving exceptional coffees from the world’s finest roasters. They aim to have the most skilled baristas in Portland, and they definitely follow through, every drink is made to perfection. With seasonal drinks, a happy hour, a beautiful dark interior, and a variety of pastries and small bites, Barista is the place to meet a friend, grab breakfast, or hunker down and get work done. Located in the Pearl, Downtown, Alberta, and Nob Hill.
Good coffee really lives up to its name, because, well, it’s good! They like to think of themselves as a friendly neighborhood coffee shop, and a place to be in good company. Good has an incredible seasonal menu, currently featuring a cardamom latte, blackberry spiced cocoa, a maple & orange latte, and a matcha lavender latte. They also have an extensive list of teas along with your typical coffee drinks. Their four shops, located in the Woodlark Hotel, Slabtown, Richmond, and Buckman, all share a similar simple white aesthetic. The employees are some of the friendliest baristas in town!
Good also does good in the community with COMMON GOOD. This project chooses a new organization every six months to highlight. The package of COMMON GOOD coffee tells the story of the work the organization is doing, and 20% of proceeds from the coffee are donated to the organization! We love places that are also helping the community thrive. Don’t forget to get your picture with their iconic “Good” floor tile while you’re in!
Upper Left Roasters
Upper Left Roasters serves their own single-origin espresso, pour-over coffee, and an ever-changing menu of toasts and open-faced sandwiches. Upper Left Roasters started in 2015 with the hopes of developing a vibrant place for neighborhood residents and visitors in the Ladd’s Addition neighborhood to visit. They work with local farmers to provide customers with fresh and seasonal options using locally sourced food! They also partner with other local organizations including Bee Local Honey and they use Tea Bar matcha for their matcha! They have specialty drinks along with typical coffee and tea. If you are a cold brew fan, they have more than just your typical cold brew, including one that is infused with cacao beans! Their Ladd’s Addition location is large but cozy and has plenty of workspace! Their newest location is located Downtown next to the Nine’s hotel. Go hungry, don’t stop in without getting a slice of toast!
