The slow bar at Four Barrel in San Francisco - great service, nice customers. Phenomenal coffee. One of the faves.

The Stumptown Annex in Portland. It’s next to one of their other shops, but this one has no espresso machine - only pour-over drip coffee, with daily cuppings open to the public. Nice brick walls, big windows, a vault, and the coffees are their best.

A cappuccino at the original Stumptown in Portland. To my surprise, some of the best shots of their Hairbender espresso blend that I had weren’t served at Stumptown, but at coffee bars in Portland and Los Angeles.

Barista and customer interacting at Four Barrel in San Francisco. The angle and the fact they’re both smiling makes it look staged and corny, but I like the moment regardless.
