Portland Oregon Coffee And Coffee Houses

Portland Oregon coffee houses are almost as plentiful as residential homes throughout the city. Well, that may be a bit of a stretch, but they are all over! ;)

It's been reported that Portland residents drink more gourmet coffee than anyone else in the nation, including Seattle, which is home to the very first Starbucks. That's impressive, if not a little scary realizing how many caffeine zombies are walking the streets of the city at any given time! hehe.

It's rare not to see someone carrying a steaming hot drip, Mocha, Latte, Cappuccino, Double Shot, Frappe, Iced Coffee, and on and on and on, whether working or playing. A hand without a mug or cup is nearly like seeing someone walking around without their head.

Obviously, we take our coffee very seriously, with many shops offering ongoing coffee cupping events to anyone wanting to learn more about what they drink.

You're likely to find an Internet Cafe or coffee house in Portland Oregon whenever and wherever the need may hit you. As with the majority of America, you're going to see an abundance of Starbucks in malls, on street corners and book stores. Don't even get me started with Starbucks....or as I like to refer to it as, "CHARBUCKS!"

But, we do boast our own little addiction joints such as Stumptown Coffee Roasters. The original Stumptown shop opened in 1999 over on SE 45th and Division and has now expanded out. They were awarded 2006 Roaster of the Year by Roast Magazine. The owner is very particular about the beans! Many Portland Oregon coffee shops serve Stumptown coffee as their brew of choice.

To me, Portland and coffee are buddies that just go great together. I find both very comforting and warming to my soul. Also, since Portland is a very business-oriented and productive city, a fresh cup of Joe without a speedy Wifi connection for your laptop is bordering on heresy. Here's a wonderful site to find all the Wifi hotspots in Portland.

Finding a comfortable and friendly Portland Oregon coffee shop is important to me, since I do a good majority of my affiliate marketing work from these "satellite offices" of mine. My must-haves are good lighting, larger, comfortable tables and chairs, music that is not too loud and preferably soothing, and a strong, free WiFi connection. When those pieces fall into place, I'm a very happy camper! ;)

Below is a video of myself and my friend, Wade Pack, when we attended the 2010 Coffee Fair at the World Forestry Center here in Portland. We had a good deal of fun and downed a gallon or two of coffee.

You can find other videos of my exploits in and around Portland at my YouTube channel. I'd love to have you Friend me. Don't forget to rate and subscribe, too! ;)

Being an activist myself and a fan of justice, I felt the need to state that I will never patronize The Red & Black Cafe in SE Portland. Why?

In May of 2010, Portland police officer, ex-marine, and ex-soldier, who proudly served our country in Iraq, James Crooker, stopped by Red & Black Cafe one afternoon to grab a cup of coffee while on his beat. He was promptly refused service and asked to leave. What was Officer Crooker's crime that day? Nothing more than being a police officer. dressed in uniform. That's it and that is just plain wrong.

Read the whole story here and here. You couldn't pay me to visit the Red & Black Cafe in Portland. Never, ever.
