Ristretto Roasters, Portland

August 3, 2013 Leave a comment

Ristretto Roasters closed its Beaumont branch and opened its doors at Couch Street just yesterday! Like when we were there at about 6pm, they were literally just opened for business, for like 3 hours or so?

Normally we go to the Nicolai branch but heard that RR was opening one at Couch St and we were pretty excited about it, because it has the latest opening hours, until 8pm, so you can grab a cuppa and chill later into the evening. Myself and T have found a lack of good coffee roasters that open past 6 in Portland, so needless to say, we were stoked to know of the new Couch St RR’s opening hours.

The place sits at a lovely corner of NE Couch and 6th Ave, and is apparently designed by Bamboo Revolution; the avant garde wooden furnishings are telling of that, and they serve awesome coffee, no less. And their iced coffee/cold brew comes in Ball mason jars, how cool is that?

Another cool place to chill with great coffee, hurray!

3D Latte Art but no 3D Glasses required..

3D Latte Art but no 3D Glasses required!

Chic japanese themed cafe located in Millenia Walk. Not a typical place that I would head to for a cup of cuppa. Heard and saw pictures of the 3d latte art totally made me want to check it out myself. Coffee beans are from local roastery Liberty Coffee was definitely a plus! Be sure to try out the desserts from the Cordon Bleu pastry chef Gwen Lim who has apparently worked under Pierre Herme himself! Pretty Awesome!

Toby’s Estate, Singapore

Toby’s Estate, is a pretty renowned coffee chain in Australia. Originally in Toby’s Mum garage in Sydney now expanded to Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane, Singapore, and even Brooklyn. They were also in the Union Square Holiday Markets in NYC. I kinda like the Robertson Quay area as its usually not too crowded and there’s plenty of dining areas. There’s also a couple of coffee places where you can sip your coffee by the river. Of course when the weather permits..
