[Homeroast] Portland Cafe reviews

Honestly, to me Spella is just way too old school.  They do a good job with old school, but I got over robusta in my espresso a looong time ago.  There is so much more to espresso than persistent crema, especially if the crema tastes like Goodyear.
The espresso tastes alright in a milk drink, but as you start going sub-6oz it really isn't very pleasant, IMHO.

Thanks for the recommendation, there are so many gems in Portland it is easy to overlook about 85% of them.

Seriously some of the best espresso to be had.  I was working in Vancouver around Thanksgiving and made it in every chance I got.  There are a lot of great shops but MiKe and Bryan are doing it in a way that is really outstanding.
