Tandem Coffee Roasters
Ranked #5 of 51 Coffee & Tea in Portland
Restaurant details
Reviewed July 17, 2014

I say simply because you don't need a large menu when you have a few things right. The coffee is being roasted right before your eyes. There is never more than a handful of people working here and they have about 4 menu items. Get the mocha. That's all I have to say about that. Hand stirred chocolate, great espresso.

Tandem is far and away the best place for coffee in Portland, and well worth the visit. They make a wonderful macchiato, but they are also run by a group of thoughtful staff who welcome every customer as if they are their friend. It's a great spot to go get coffee and visit, and I highly recommend stopping in!

Hipsters love stumptown, Intellgencia and blue bottle, but i honestly can't much of a difference. They are all now just more large roasters.
Tandem seems like I am buying a craft, a small batch of something wonderful.
Even the decaf is 'coffee'!

We recently mentioned to someone that we were headed to Portland and they highly suggested a stop at Tandem. They had a small menu which made it easy to select a cup. I was not prepared for how outstanding the coffee would taste, I have never sipped coffee so good in my entire life. I even went back for seconds and grabbed a bag to take home. Brought a new meaning to coffee shop and raised my standard for coffee. A must go if you like coffee.

While a visit to Tandem may seem a bit off the beaten path, this is a must for any lovers of not only perfectly roasted coffee, but beautifully made as well. Don't expect an internet cafe where coffee is sipped over quiet tables for hours, but more like a fine bar, where the coffee is enjoyed on a few stools in the close company of like minded souls.
