Portland: 9 hours, 2 places
I’ve got nine hours in Portland coming up in a few days. No car, just transit. I’ve asked for reccomendations before and I’ve read Oliver Strand’s piece on the city. I’ve picked through Sprudge’s Portland city guide, which, even though they admit, is a little outdated, still sparkles with enthusiasm over some obviously great places.
Nine hours sounds like a long time but I know it’s going to go fast. I’ve got some ideas of where I think I want to go but I’m soliciting some more focused, last-minute input. This is what i’m asking…
If you had nine hours to tour what is arguably the country’s foremost coffee wonderland, using Portland’s vaunted public transit system, What two places would you go to experience the best of what Portland has to offer?.
Well, isn’t this awesome — five independent Portland coffee roasters coming together for one incredible (as they tell it) Guatemalan coffee. And it sounds like it is only the beginning.
I want more of this…

If shop owners actively choose not to participate in the Seattle second-wave market, they’ll see very quickly that there aren’t that many other shops with whom they are in competition.
