A cool coffee shop combined with a bamboo furniture workshop - interesting combination. The coffee was pricey but amazingly good; we tried several espressos from different suppliers and also bought some beans which make a great brew at home as well.

Since Portland is very big on coffee I decided to try this location. For one I love the set up. The old lathe machines and other factory machines as décor and tables is awesome. I ordered a cappuccino and a croissant. The croissant was cold but the coffee...DELISH! So good I made another trip, out of my way, the next... More

This is my favorite coffee roaster in Portland. Great coffees available and the staff was friendly. A little expensive but worth it.I will be ordering their coffee often.

I've been at their Hawthorne shop plenty of times & like it quite a bit. Imagine my dismay when I asked at the counter what tea they had, and the guy said, "None. We only have coffee." I'm not sure I've ever had that experiences in Portland before. He wasn't that apologetic or that concerned either. So, I bought a... More

Easily the best cup of coffee and latte I've ever had across the globe! This place is special and a must stop to enjoy Coava's superb coffee.

Coava's pour-over coffees are Portland's best! Its clean and balanced cups are brewed with close attention to water temperature and drip time, and highlight the taste of Coava's finely roasted coffee beans. Well-made espresso-based drinks and a limited selection of pastries are also available.

Wow, don’t forget your hipster I.D. when you enter. Such a cool place and unique atmosphere, but pretty sure we didn’t fit in. And the coffee? Holy cow (I’m pretty sure hipsters don’t say that)! I cashed in my Chemex v-card. Had my first Chemex pour-over and was so, so, so impressed! That was absolutely the strongest coffee I’ve ever... More

Wow! Simply the best coffee I've ever had. The latte was incredible! It's a hip and very sparse kind of place. The menu is limited and you'll take what they give you. I saw the Portland episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee and had to try it when we were in Portland, and am I glad we did! The... More

Industrial setting with a plethora of simply amazing woodwork, from the counters to the bathrooms (!), this place is like a woodworker's dream and treasure trove of ideas! THE DETAIL in every bit of woodworking is EYE-POPPING. The staff was rather indifferent, not really friendly, but certainly not unfriendly. They just weren't very chatty or cheerful. I kind of like... More
