Here is a List of Every Coffee Roaster in Portland (We Think)


Food & Drink
On multiple occasions when putting together this year's coffee issue, I thought "I wish there was a list of every coffee roaster in Portland." The closest thing was this one we wrote a couple of years ago. But things change. I've updated the list with every new roaster I'm aware of (please let me know if I'm missing one and I'll add it to the list), plus a few from not-quite-Portland-but-pretty-close ...   More

Portland Wins 2013 NW Barista Competition

Portland rules, Seattle drools.


Food & Drink
Even if you don't give a toss about the Sounders-Timbers rivalry (and we don't [Speak for yourself! -Ed.]), there's still a cheap thrill to be had every time Portland beats Seattle in another competitive arena of physical prowess: making coffee. Portland dominated at last year's Northwest Regional Barista Competition in Tacoma, while Seattle baristas barely showed up to compete.

Coffee Issue 2012: Case Study Coffee Downtown


Food & Drink
Case Study Coffee's new downtown cafe didn't open in time for our 2012 Coffee Issue, so I swung by this morning for a macchiato while waiting out a flash storm. It's only a week old, so I won't say anything critical, but here's a quick first glance:[Inside baseball alert] During the making of the coffee guide, the A&C editor and I argued over whether one would describe Case Study's original Northeast ...   More
