After Billy Wilson left The Albina Press, we all wondered where he would end up, luckily it didn't take long for him to find a new home.  At last years Coffeefest in Seattle, he told me that he was planning to open his own place and fortunately the old Acorn spot on NW 13th became available!  For the past few weeks Barista has been serving Stumptown, Echo and Intelligentsia as well as a few random single origins from different roasters.  I am yet to have a bad shot at Barista and I know that if I do, they will pull me new one, a lot of Cafe's in town could learn a thing or two from Barista!

There are always restaurants where all of the Chefs go to eat, and now there is a Cafe where all of the Portlanders in the Coffee business go to drink espresso, it's pretty sweet!
