Our love affair with coffee in Bend, Oregon

    If Oregonians could choose a state beverage, it’d be a tie between beer or coffee.   But ask an Oregonian what the best coffee (or beer) is, and that’s where it gets tricky.

    With about a gazillion coffee shops and breweries sprinkled throughout the state, it’s impossible to say which is the best. But you wouldn’t be a local if you didn’t have an allegiance to one brewed beverage or another, and with distinct passion.


    So, how does Oregon fare nationwide in the world of coffee?

    It’s probably no surprise that we favor local shops over national chains, and also not surprisingly, this article from Business Insider states they’ve “never heard of Dutch Bros.” [gasp]

    Here in Bend, we’re lucky to have coffee shops practically on every corner; a little something for everyone, depending on taste and favorite blend of organic, fresh-brewed deliciousness.

    A few of our personal local faves:

    What we love about this list is that while each place brews an awesome cup of coffee, it’s more than that: each offers their own flavor, their own culture, their own twist on the regular cup of joe. So while the nation may have a love affair with the larger national brands, we’ll stick with our local coffee shops, thank you very much.
