Barista is an excellent little coffee shop to go get caffeinated. The baristas are incredibly kind and you can hop across the way from it and enjoy the boutique that shares a space. Dog friendly too, with an amazing patio people take full advantage of on a sunny day!

Fantastically complex double shot of espresso. I also had a featured Ethiopian they had for drip; it notes of Thai tea and a lemon finish. In all honesty, it was one of the best and most interesting cups of coffee I have ever had. I love that they feature roasters as well. Highly recommended for coffee aficionados!

There are a number of very good coffee shops in Portland, but Barista is the place I always make sure I visit if I'm in Portland and always tell others to go to. Every time I've been there, not only do I always get an amazing espresso, I always end up having a second because it's so good.

One of Portland's many great coffee cafe's. Barista feels like it could be in Soho in NYC, SOMA in San Fran, or any other refurbished warehouse district of an urban center. Baristas here take their jobs very seriously and their coffee's show it. Always good as a place to stop for a quick meeting, relaxing break, and a buzz.

Really enjoyed their coffee and espresso. We brought back home several bags of their coffee for ourselves and friends.

My absolute favorite coffee houses in portland. I get the coava expresso but for some reason barista makes better coffee than at coava. Water ave is good, cafe behind the museum is maybe my second best but barista is always first choice.

I enjoy a variety of coffee and espresso drinks at Barista and sometimes eat the bakery. It's a great stop when you are in the Pearl or Powell's vicinity. I work out at 24 Hour Fitness nearby

They know what they are doing here. Good local PDX coffee spot. I would suggest you never step foot in Starbucks in Portland, instead, go to great places like Barista instead!

Thank David I
