Coffeepad is a blog of coffee-inspired stories and reviews from a coffee drinker and writer in Portland, Oregon. After years of enjoying coffee at indie cafes and roasters all around town, I’ve created Coffeepad to share the coffee love, and a story or two.

    We love Stumptown coffee as well. As a Super saver – its hard to justify the cost, but when you weigh in the value of good coffee, the numbers begin to melt away… similar to the sleepy feeling that leaves me as I crusie down 26 to work, java in hand. I am sure the people on 217 wish it happened a little quicker, and that the coffee would kick in sooner so I would pick up speed and go faster than 50 in the ole’ jalopy. Perhaps if I poured it in the tank, the car would feel as alive as me! Brew on!

      I’m afraid our friends over at Clutching Coins would not approve of how much we spend on coffee, but $3 bucks a gallon would be quite the super savings.

    so, in ’96 my wife and i enjoyed a trip downtown to Portland on our honeymoon…. we visited an awesome coffee shop, and can’t seem to find our way ‘back’. not much details, but there was a large round and open coffee roaster? in the back of the shop, as you entered the front door the counter was to the left, AND we remember a large white dog (presumably a great pyrenees) laying on the floor next to the roaster? or whatever it was…. can i be any more vague, or have you a good idea where this place might be? i’ll send you a giftcard if you can help me find it again so I can surprise my wife (we currently live near Philadelphia PA) – has to have some photos…. (; do hope you can help. thank you from the bottom of my heart – bryan

    I’d love to help you figure out the mystery. Keep checking back and I’ll try to post some options. At first I thought it had to be Stumptown’s SE Division shop, but I just looked at their site, and it says they opened in 1999 (fueling the independent roasting craze). Downtown, huh? Hmmm…I will keep thinking and looking.Thanks for the comment!
