The votes are in. After a few close battles and a couple of landslide victories, Happy Cup Coffee Company has been named the best coffee shop in Portland by our readers. Huge congratulations + a Corazon (mocha with housemade vegan horchata) are in order.

Thank you to everyone who participated in our barista battle royale, and make sure to keep an eye out for future interactive experiences. Cheers. ☕

How it works

Beginning today, we will host several voting rounds within our newsletters and social channels to determine Portland’s best coffee shop. Who moves on is up to you. Vote for your favorites, and the cafe with more votes moves on. Simple as that. We’ll go until we have a champion, which will be announced in our March 23 newsletter. You will be able to vote once per round.

How to participate

Vote for the coffee shop you’d like to see advance to round two using this poll. You can vote for all four spots or just one. Once we count all the votes, we’ll share an updated bracket and new poll in an upcoming newsletter.
