I visited the downtown Portland Stumptown on 3rd Avenue at 8 on a Monday morning and had to wait as three hardworking tattooed barristas did their thing. Their work gave the term “morning rush” new meaning. The latte was worth the ten minute wait. It was creamy and smooth. The underlying coffee flavor gave me the jolt I was looking for.
Stumptown is the coffee aficionado – the real deal. They source their beans from around the world, backing up the beans with photography that is mind-expanding. Check it out if you are a photography buff.
