Yes, that mug does have a picture of Kristin and I on it--Andy must be obsessed with us.
Next stop, Red e. This definitely was one of my favorite shops so far. The barista I talked (and talked and talked) with was super friendly and informative. He pulled me two shots with their single origin yergacheffe from Coava--a micro roastery that roasts in #3 batches. I bought 250g of his Kenyan Kiamabara (for Kristin of course!) The first shot was not so hot.
I had a chance to talk with Billy Wilson for a moment, and asked him if I could get a picture with him like a creepy fanboy (even though I am not a fan). He obliged. Check my previous post for the picture, my creepy side smile is not worth posting twice. This is on my list of "You have to visit, if only once" coffee shops.
That concluded my coffee tour for the day. Tomorrow we are planning on going to Stumptown for a public cupping. Oh Portland!
