    This is the "it" coffee roaster in America right now. The cafe and baristas are top notch! Their espresso is to die for! Not a fan of their brewed coffee. Roast is too light. (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    This shop is chill and makes outstanding espresso drinks. One of the more laid-back places in PDX. Best of all, it's down the street from Screen Door, one of the best brunch places in Portland.

    One of my favorite coffee shops in town. Great espresso drinks and small selection of pastries. The downtown location is also a great spot for hanging out and enjoying a cup of joe.

    They don't only make amazing coffee, but also have a great business model. They're in it to make you the best coffee possible!

    The lightest roast in the city, so they sell my favorite beans for Chemex coffee. They also make a fantastic cappuccino.

    For Oregon, is probably the most scientific in their approach to roasting, and is this probably the 'best' roaster in Oregon. Their drip is also very dialled.

    Some of the best coffee in the city! Heart is best for socializing and book reading; leave studies and work for elsewhere as outlets are scarce and the wifi is sketchy.

    A chai or latte with the house cashew-almond milk is so perfect.

    the seasonal honey latte was delicious: not too sweet, and the espresso wasn't overpowered. the shop itself is beautiful.

    Really cool place with great coffee! The roaster proudly takes centre stage in the room and there is a really cool vintage map of Portland!

    They roast in the shop! A bar wraps around their probat which fills the coffee shop with the smell of coffee while their roasting.

    This Portland roaster/duo of cafes is one by which many others are measured. Why is that? Because they have a primary “focus on taste, quality, & clarity” where one-size-fits-all labels don’t apply. Read more

    We love small coffee brewers — known locally as microroasters — like Heart. The coffee is so smooth and flavorful that it barely needs milk.

    This is a coffee lover’s dream come true. Take a note from wine aficionados and order a flight to taste the distinct difference in their coffees!

    Bring a container and try to get them to sell you beans by the pound. Sometimes it works! The more people do this, the better, because their bags are icky plastic.

    What to Order: Heart’s known for its espresso, which it makes in a volumetric Spirit espresso machine.

    Despite the name, they don't actually sell hearts here. Or any other organs. Try the bi-monthly PDX Black Market instead.

    I think most people here need a hug. Also: nobody should toast in front of people; its unseemly!
