Posted on by sorellacaffe

Tucked away on trendy, tree-lined Melrose Place is Alfred Coffee, an awesome new cafe specializing in high-end beverages concocted with Stumptown Coffee Roasters.

I wish I could live here! The sleek black and white decor mixed with floral patterns makes for such a cool-yet-comfy vibe. And can we talk about how my life motto is painted on the wall??

While there is plenty of seating at street level, the main portion of the cafe is situated downstairs.

This visit was especially excellent for me because I got behind-the-scenes access!

This is the Gibraltar, named for its glassware. It has less foam than a cappuccino, but the taste is basically along those lines. I love seeing the drink through the glass!

Stumptown Coffee is one of my favorite roasters! While I recommend splurging on a fancy espresso drink here at Alfred, the drip coffee is awesome too.Garlic My Soul | Alfred Coffee

I finished up my visit with a regular latte. I’ll admit, I’m one of those people who always adds some syrup/sugar to my drink because a plain latte is usually way too bitter. Well Alfred makes a latte at an entirely different level! I had it completely plain, and it was so smooth and delicious.

A huge thanks to the wonderful staff at Alfred for the kind welcome and for making me so many delicious treats!
