Ristretto has been roasting coffee since 2005, but the new location, on Williams Avenue, takes coffee appreciation to a new level with regular tasting events and a dedicated "cupping room." With soaring ceilings; the smell of fresh-brewed coffee; a modern mixture of dark woods, metals and leather; and a simple, open bar, the space appeases all senses. Ristretto is another of the very few places in town that roasts high-quality coffees on its own, often buying from the same farms and importers as Stumptown. Being able to taste different expressions of the same coffees is one of the joys of having multiple roasters in the same town.
