Named the No. 1 coffee shop to see before you die by BuzzFeed, Heart‘s downtown location brings their delicately roasted coffee to the trendy West End.

Andrea Spella’s closet-size Spella Café near Pioneer Courthouse Square showcases the Italian-American’s love for palate-engaging blended roasts and a fondness for rare bean varietals imported from Brazil and India.

Portland’s most famous coffee export has four beautiful, bustling locations around the city, with two right downtown.
