5 Most Recommended Portland Coffee Shops

When I shared that I was headed to Portland, Oregon for the weekend I asked for recommendations of places to go. Coffee shops were highly recommended! My sister and I decided that on our trip we would bike around the town and discover these Portland coffee shops. On our route we also set out to discover handfuls of murals  and vintage shops. It made for a great day of exploring and snapping photographs, not to mention a great workout!

5 Most Recommended Portland, Oregon Coffee Shops & What They are Known For

  1. Stumptown Coffee Roasters

    Hands down the most recommended Portland coffee shop was Stumptown Coffee Roasters. We stayed at the Embassy Suites which just so happened to be right across the street to a Stumptown (woot!). We both ordered a Vanilla Latte and both agreed that it was one of the best we have had. So we of course recommend it!
    What they are known for: Stumptown was one of the first in the third wave coffee trend. Treating coffee as an artisanal foodstuff, like wine, rather than a commodity. They pride themselves in making relationships with their producers. The organic cold brew, French blend, and vanilla latte are great picks at Sumptown Coffee Roasters.

  2. Heart Coffee Roasters

    We found Heart Coffee while searching Pinterest for “Instagram Worthy” shops and Heart Coffee Roasters without a doubt is an Instagrammers dream. One of our favorite Abbotsford Coffee Shops, Old Hand Coffee, shared with us that they also loved Heart Coffee when I shared we were visiting on my Instagram stories. We found their staff to be super friendly and so willing to chit chat and share more tips about great places to visit within the area.
    What they are known for: Heart Coffee makes all of their coffee and syrups in house. Their top sellers include their drip coffee and their espresso. They also have a small selection of pastries and were told that the Korvapiusti is a must try!

  3. Upper Left Roasters

    This little shop was one that we discovered on our bike trip. We couldn’t bike past Upper Left Roasters without checking it out. They have lots of tables on the patio and a gorgeous set up inside. If you ask me, another Instagrammers dream. I loved their branding and their tall sign out front.
    What they are known for: When I asked what they were known for I could barely finish before I got the answer of, “our avocado toast!”  We were riding on a full stomach so neither of us tried it but I am thinking by that response it is a must try! For coffee drinks we were told that their cold brews and flavoured lattes are the most popular.

  4. Nossa Familia Coffee

    While we were on our trip we shared about our Stumptown Cofffee Roasters visit and a friend let us know that we had to try Nossa Familia Coffee. As this friend roasts his own coffee (Smoking Gun) we took his recommendation as a good one! We ordered the Earl Grey Tea Soda advertised on the sign in the front of the store, highly recommend!
    What they are known for: Though we didn’t get to try we heard that the mochas are a must try, we also think the Earl Grey Soda’s should be on that list.

  5. Barista

    With multiple locations all over town you are bound to come across a Barista Coffee. We went to the one on 23rd Ave (across from Salt & Straw // another iconic Portland place!), and also saw a couple other during out Portland ventures.
    What they are known for: I asked to order what they were known for at Barista and left with a Honey Marzipan Latte. They also have a rotating collection of cookies fresh made in house. Yum!

  • This girl couldn’t be happier to do these matching hair photos together. Who wants to learn this look?
  • What if I told you creating latte art just got easier.....⠀
Because it has! I've been loving my new machine, but have been lacking on the ability to create beautiful latte art. I created a handful of latte art stencils for anyone else like me that just can't seem to get it right. ⠀
Since getting my Nespresso machine I have learnt so much. Not only have I been improving my latte making skills but I have also discovered more about how Nespresso is working towards being as sustainable as possible. Each of their capsules are made of aluminum, which is fully recyclable. Right now there are 51 recycling points across the country, and the number keeps growing. More about their recycling programs and those super cute free printables are up on the blog now.⠀

  • Guesssss what! @roxannredekop and I were chatting and we are going to be putting some video hair tutorials together. She’ll be helping me style mine and Sophie’s hair for our matching mom and mini photos and then she’ll teach you how to do it. I loved all your feedback on our first matching mom and mini hair post and I can’t wait to bring even more!
