Leica M7 – Explorer various coffees in Portland, Oregon (Portra 400)

To those of you who read my previous posts might know. Yes, I am a coffee fanatic! When I visited Portland, Oregon last week. One of my bucket lists was to visit Stumptown next to HOTEL ACE.

Well, I certainly cleared my list. However, maybe I had too high expectations. It was no better than I drink at home off of Stumptown coffee beans. Don’t get me wrong. It was great but typically I experienced better coffee with professional barista coffee even from the same coffee beans.

I hear that the place is very hot (both hotel ACE as well as Stumptown cafe), just like the rumors people came in continuously.

The next adventure is “BARISTA” cafe. I visited this place purely by luck. Of course I knew that this place is popular coffee place but I didn’t have plan to visit. But somehow the place I ate with other friend’s families is right next to BARISTA cafe!

To my surprise, it was far better than stumptown coffee! I also like streets near BARISTA better than around Stumptown area.
