Portland Coffee - Top 10

To say that Portland is at the forefront of the coffee scene would be an understatement. With endless cafes spread throughout the city we had a hard time narrowing down the list. We are no experts but we drink an obscene amount of coffee so we feel qualified in making a top 10 list.

In no particular order:

1. Dapper & Wise

Situated in SE Portland on Division Street, Dapper & Wise does so many things right. You can expect to be greeted with comical baristas, and friendly conversation. If you're looking to try something new, order a coffee soda. We absolutely recommend following them on Instagram, between their hysterical videos and creative captions they will quickly become a favorite.

2. Water Avenue

You will find Water Avenue Coffee situated on Water Avenue. (creative huh?) This industrial space brings out some of Portland's best coffee. With their creative roasting techniques, they leave you wanting to try more and more.

3. Good Coffee

You guessed it. Good Coffee has really good coffee. This might just be one of the most aesthetically pleasing coffee shops in Portland. You'll immediately notice the seemingly perfect plants, every detail here counts. The coffee is served in beautiful handmade mugs, you'll absolutely want to stay awhile.

4. Upper Left Roasters

One of the most beautiful, airy coffee shops in the city. Every once in awhile you'll get to see the lead roaster at work. Upper Left offers a good sized food selection so go hungry, you will not be disappointed.

5. Heart Coffee Roasters

Heart Coffee is a well known roaster in Portland that both locals and tourists enjoy. With a location on each side of the river the locations are quite different. The west side location is small and clean, hipsters flowing in and out. The east side location allows for larger groups and seems to attract more locals.

6. Barista

This unique series of coffee shops allows for individuals to have a completely different experience in each spot. Their newest location in the Pine Street Market, Brass Bar, is attracting people with coffee in the day, and spiked coffee at night.

7. Coava

With a large interior, Coava invites groups of people in to spend hours on their projects. Coava is known for their precise coffee, with every detail being focused on, they produce a perfect cup of coffee.

8. Cup & Bar

With Trailhead Roasters being located in Cup & Bar, the space gives off a unique vibe. We recommend biking here, as you can head straight in the garage door and hang up your bike in the shop. With each cup of coffee you'll have a complimentary piece of chocolate - a perfect combo. Cup & Bar offers a series of gourmet toast selections, we recommend the avocado toast.

9. Stumptown

Though many new shops have been emerging in the last couple of years, Stumptown will always be a Portland Staple. With locations all across the city its easy to stop in for a cup. One of our favorite spots is tucked inside the Ace Hotel.

10. Case Study

Case Study is spread throughout the city in three different locations. Each shop has a slightly different feel, we love the atmosphere on SW 10th with business professionals flowing in and out, large windows for people watching, and the central bar.
