The Best Coffee Shops In Portland, Oregon

Sarah Lantz

Portland, food capital of the Pacific Northwest, is brimming with awesome coffee shops all around the city. We’ve picked out some of our favorite places for a cup of coffee that you should try and trust us, they’re all better than the chain places!

Coava Coffee Roasters

Coava Coffee Roasters

Buying coffee beans from sustainable farms around the world, using resources to build better processing facilities and develop improved preservation practices from picking to packaging, and buying a farmer’s whole harvest without leaving the farmer hard-to-sell remnants, Coava Coffee Roasters cares about where their beans come from and how they’re gathered. Their Espresso Bar is a warm and friendly place to sip a pleasant cup of coffee and meet up with friends or work. They offer tasty pastries from the local Little T American Baker and elegant teas from Portland’s Foxfire Tea.

Hot chocolate and a machiato at Albina Press

Albina Press

With baristas they send to national coffee competitions, Albina Press knows how to brew good coffee and make your favorite milky coffee drink taste like heaven. They also do awesome designs for their hot chocolates, from unicorns to intricate flowers, a plus for kids and people who like hot chocolate. Customers have said this place will ruin the taste of normal coffee for you forever. The atmosphere is very laid back with a sprawling number of tables to study at, work, and relax.

Located in four different districts of Portland, Barista is a popular Portland chain of coffee shops. The original, in the Pearl District, is a cozy café with exposed industrial brick walls and minimalist wood tables. It may not be the best for sitting, but the coffee is well made and the lattes smooth and creamy. They use a siphon-brewing method to separate the coffee from the grounds.

With quality green coffee from Africa, South America, and Central America roasted to perfection, Heart serves delicious drip coffee. They also sell delicious scones, muffins, and other pastries. With a simple, minimalistic aesthetic, Heart is a comfortable and open place naturally lit to study and work or sit by the window and people watch with a warm comfort drink.

Latte at Coffeehouse Northwest

Coffeehouse Northwest

Serving tasty pastries like the ‘Maple Bacon Scone’ and much hyped and delicious coffee, Coffeehouse Northwest is a Portland favorite. The exposed brick walls are decorated with local art and the windows are large and welcome in natural light. For those with their laptops, there are plenty of outlets for charging. Besides favorites like cappuccinos with fine, tight foam and creamy vanilla lattes, hot chocolates and chai teas are good too.
