We found this little hole in the wall selling coffee in Portland and stopped in for a dark roasted cup and a croissant. Both passed with flying colors. Nice freshly roasted flavor and very tasty croissant. As an added bonus, the cost made the stop a steal.
Smelled wonderful, tasted even better. Got the Sumatran, black. When coffee is wonderful without added anything, it's truly wonderful. Served with personality, even better. They don't just claim to be barristas, and I got no hint of pretentiousness, snobbery, or inflated prices. Really great coffee, served by people who really get great coffee. Glad we stopped in.
Every city needs a good coffee shop downtown. This is it.
As a lifelong Starbucks coffee fan and a total coffee snob who favors dark silty roasted coffee I am blown away by the consistent aromas of CBD's Dark Roasts. They go above and beyond anything available at Starbucks with much more flavor, spice and versatility in comparison. If only there was a CBD off the peninsula in Portland and on Portland's outskirts where I live, I'd be there all the time.
