Ashley Gilbertson for The New York Times
I’ve seen how seriously Portlanders take their coffee. Making coffee is not making coffee, it’s “pulling shots”. It’s a prestigious gig in the Northwest that requires training, winning competitions, and continued study. Apparently, the NYTimes deems that NY now takes its coffee seriously.
I think this map of good coffee is awesome, but it stresses me out a little bit. I’ve been away for nearly two years, and I haven’t tried half of these new places.
