My heart goes back to Portland for coffee. For me, their attention to the details took things to another level. This is the Stumptown cafe in downtown Portland. Yes, I have mentioned it before. It was the best. The coffee was sharp as a saber and velvet as night. It brought alacrity to the brain like a diamond bullet through the forehead. Still, the feeling on the street where we sat at a table was mellow and relaxed. You could rest and watch people with the assurance of a black restorative in your mug.
A wise man once said that hospitality is paying attention to the guest. Stumptown paid careful attention to the guest and I am humbled. Even though the original cafe gets second place, the downtown cafe wins the award as the best.
