The perks of having a well-traveled and generous (ahem) sister-in-law is being able to sample first-hand most of her destination foodie finds. On her recent vacation from Portland, Oregon, lucky me was given (among others) a bag of Beaumont Blend from Ristretto Roasters. It's been quite a while since I did a coffee review, so allow me to share this one with you.

In 2009, Ristretto opened its second branch in North Portland, this time imbibing a sexier-hip appeal, yet still maintaining it's well-known warm and welcoming (not snobbish) ambiance. The road still looks "rosy" for the them, thereby benefiting its loyal followers!
Best served as straight espresso, or brewed in a French press to unleash its full flavors. Happy sipping!
