PEARL DISTRICT'S SPECIALTY COFFEE
Discover five of Portland’s celebrated micro-roasters and specialty cafes in the upscale Pearl District. Cobblestone streets and converted warehouses hint at the neighborhood’s industrial past, but innovative roasters and award-winning baristas define the culinary future of this iconic district. On this three-hour walking tour, you’ll also get the rare opportunity to explore a working roaster — possibly meeting the owner, seeing green coffee shipped from South American farms, watching coffee being roasted and finishing with a cupping, the industry standard for coffee tasting. We’ll leisurely walk for a little over one mile while experiencing the history of the district’s urban renewal and the city’s pioneering role in third wave coffee.
Tuesdays @ 10:00 AM, $40
Meet at The Red e Cafe, 721 NW 9th Ave
