This is a cool little spot located in Echo Park. It has delicious baked good out the yin yang to choose from and a little seating area to enjoy them. Not much for atmosphere, but maintains a healthy flow of beautiful people coming and going. A Strada Machine that highlights the quality Four Barrel Coffee they use. The coffee was smooth with good color, but just lacked a little bite. It was almost too smooth for my taste. I like to have the flavor explode in my mouth, and this was just lacked that little extra spark. Solid coffee anywhere else, but not going to knock your sunglasses off.

Macrina Bakery

Macrina’s specialty is certainly not coffee, but like everything they do, they do it well. With A few locations around town, Macrina delivers some of the best baked goods and tasty treats in the city. Sandwiches, soups, salad and every baked good you can imagine this is solid place to stop. Every Macrina I have been to, has a great layout with beautiful woodwork and intricate designs. No detail has been missed in everything Macrina does. Their coffee is made on a small La Marzocco and they deliver a better shot then any other place in the city that does not specialize in espresso. If you are hungry, or want a good place to meet someone and get some great coffee, this is it!

What a cool spot in the middle of litterally nowhere. Sitting in it’s own world off the side of the highway this place is great. It has blown up over the last few years, but the quality has not diminished. They have a small La Marzoca and use a Caffe Vita bean. They make good coffee and have amazing baked goods. A little overpriced, but you are in the middle of nothingness. Has some great seating and even outside seating to enjoy the 300 days of sunshine Cashmere gets. A must stop for a snack and some great coffee.

Full City Coffee

Posted on 26 September 2012 by mattbaker

842 Pearl Street
Eugene, Oregon 97401

Review -

I always look at Full City as the workingman’s coffee. With a few around town my favorite is on Pearl St. This one is located in the heart of downtown Eugene right next to all the city buildings, this place caters to people on the go. That does not mean the quality is compromised. They pull a decent shot. Not the best in Eugene, but certainly not going to dissapoint. They are also connected to a real good bakery that has some tastry treats to snack on. If you are looking for a place to hang out, talk with friends or get work done, this is not the place. The space is small and they specialize in volume. Get your coffee and walk over to the fountain across the street.

Review -

A interesting little place that also is a bakery. Although they were all out of baked goods when I arrived, the atmosphere was cool. Hard to not overhear every conversation in the place, but since it is in the living room of an old house, I think that is the point. Everyone seemed to know each other and are very friendly to strangers. The coffee was ok and nothing to rave about, but a cool place to visit none the less.

Review -

Another coffee shop located at the back of artsy gift shop for tourists. Their baked goods are great, but that is about it. They use an Astoria machine and my shot of espresso was way to hot and even scarier, way to big! A shot of espresso should not be 5 oz. Skip this place unless you want to pick up some cool trinkets.

Review

This is a chain in Spokane and has plenty of potential. The food is good, ambiance is better then most, but the coffee is so inconsistant. They have a decent La Marzoca machine, but I feel like there barista’s are not properly trained on pulling a decent shot. My coffee has ranged from pretty good to scorched and undrinkable. Certainly not the best spot in Spokane, but definatley the most hyped. If you are looking for a sandwich and to read, this is your spot.. Don’t expect good coffee.
