What is the best coffee roaster in Portland?
This is all about the beans. I asked for Best Coffee Roaster in Portland in a separate question from best coffeehouse, because I wanted to concentrate strictly on the coffee, so this is a new question this year. It seems like everyone has decided that roasting coffee is easy, so we’ve been flooded with new offerings. Unfortunately, my experience is that many of them have a lot to learn. The bulk of the Portland roasters only received a few votes, but these six rose far above the others with 62.7%.
