Price Scale

Sterling Coffee Roasters defied the gods of coffee-ology with heavenly espresso flights and micro-roasted beans spilling giddily from a 50-square-foot cart designed to look like a London bar. In 2017, Northwest Portland’s icon of coffee shop intimacy (8 seats, 200 square feet, flawless drinks) moved into bigger digs a few blocks away at 518 NW 21st Avenue. Sterling’s signature drinks include espresso flights served in single-malt scotch glasses, fine lattes, and fantastic mochas.
