Portland is known for two major things: the best breweries and the best coffee roasters. Unlike a lot of cities in the country, Starbucks isn’t the only place to get a cup of coffee. Actually, we don’t even think about Starbucks at all, because there is a good coffee shop on every block. Choosing the best coffee in Portland isn’t an easy feat; and spoiler alert: you can’t.
1. Tōv - SE Portland
Have you ever ordered coffee inside of a bus? Well, now you can at Tōv on Hawthorne Boulevard, and believe me, you'll want to.
2. Bipartisan Cafe - Multiple Locations
Located on the charming Stark Street, Bipartisan Cafe is a rustic hang out. Enjoy your delicious cup of Water Avenue Coffee with a slice of pie (it should probably be the marionberry).
Coffee and pizza; it might sound like an unlikely pair but it's one of the most satisfying. You have to go to Fillmore to see for yourself.
4. Coava Coffee Roasters
Come here for a no-fuss and sophisticated coffee experience. With a very limited selection of types of coffee drinks, Coava slings the best of the best.
5. Water Avenue Coffee
In Portland's industrial neighborhood is the mouthwatering Water Avenue Coffee. They like to give you options, so they conveniently offer the choice of a single-origin or blended espresso to savor.

Sterling Coffee Roaster's is one of Portland's tiniest coffee roasters, but that does not speak to its quality. Sterling Coffee makes it their mission to serve some of the tastiest coffees in the city and they succeed, time and time again.
