A constellation of cities along the left and right coasts, and certainly some between the two, have become known for their coffee. From Brooklyn to Raleigh to New Orleans, to Chicago, SLC, LA, Portland, and way beyond, coffee has come a long way since Chock Full O’Nuts. And Oregon, Central Oregon if we’re being precise, is not an anomaly. Whether a trickle-down effect of Portland’s upper echelon coffee scene, or borne of its own accord (or a little of both), coffee in Bend Oregon has molted into its own unique creature.
Coffee In Bend – FTW
That means For The Win. Like, coffee in Bend is winning right now. So what better reason for us to dedicate an entire page to Bend Oregon coffee shops, roasters, and cafés, right? Our thoughts exactly. From here on out, consider us your definitive source for all things coffee in Bend Oregon.
But… How do you know you can trust us? Well, you can’t. But also, you can. Because we love coffee, really good coffee, not the kind that’s simply a vehicle for caffeine. Because we spend a lot of time in downtown Bend coffee shops, working and creating and people-watching, and we know there are a few Bend coffee shop gems out of the lot. And because we’re constantly assessing the Bend Oregon coffee scene by way of taste, sight, experience, AND barista interaction (all of them somewhat fluctuating factors).
We might have a mouth on us here at (e)BGTB, but we sure as fuck know what we’re talking about when we talk about good coffee in Bend. Period.
