Portland is a town known for bikes and tattoos, and its is a close second to San Francisco’s organic fresh fare, so it’s no wonder that its coffee culture is up-to-speed with the West Coast’s refined tastes. Heart Coffee Roasters, located on Burnside Street, offers an array of blends from around the world, which they roast in-house giving the café an added buzz. Their baristas compete in these so-called competitions flexing their espresso skills. Customers won’t be disappointed and will leave caffeinated and ready to bike – or even drive – to their next destination.
