Coffee and Tea
The Buzz on Coffee (and Tea, Too)
Coffee lovers flock to Oregon. A cup of joe perfectly matches our low fog mornings, crisp and bright winter days, or drizzly evenings. It helps that our locals make outstanding coffee and are eager to share it with visitors.
While Portland touts some serious espresso, don’t overlook the expert and small-batch roasters in the Tualatin Valley. Those who are crazy about coffee will go just about anywhere to get the really good stuff, which is why so many caffeine fiends sojourn to our cafes.
Tualatin Valley boasts a number of coffee shops, each offering its own menu of delicious coffee (and tea) drinks. Plus, premium coffee roasters also call Tualatin Valley home. Several notable local roasters include Longbottom Coffee and Tea and Dapper and Wise (aka Insomnia Coffee) and Thornton Family Coffee Roasters.
From hot tea to bubble tea, you’re never too far from a fulfilling cup of tea in Tualatin Valley. Enjoy High Tea at A Clockwork Rose Tea Emporium or at the venerable Tea’s Me (reservations required at both teahouses). No reservation? No problem. Tea lovers also can experience fine crafted Oregon tea with a visit to the Stash Tea Retail Store and Tea Bar in Tigard. The tea bar offers tea drinks and lattes, as well as tea flights. The shop features a large variety of loose-leaf and bagged teas from Stash Tea.
Here in the Pacific Northwest, visitors are abuzz about our coffees, but in recent years, it is our teas that are generating buzz.
