Aren’t coffee and studying just two peas in a pod? Of course! Yet unfortunately, it can be so hard to find a coffee shop with it all: good wifi, pretty aesthetics, plenty of space, strong coffee, and most of all, the feeling of ~productivity~. But lemme tell you folks, I think I might’ve found the productivity pinnacle of coffee shops -- Greenway Coffee Company located in Greenway Plaza.
The kind of coffee we indulge in is second-wave coffee -- chocolatey, milky, eclectic sophistication. So it makes sense that we fancy coffee in the PNW, since Seattle is kind of the capital of second-wave coffee.
Portland holds a special place in our heart. It was our first HMHS trip together, and boi, was it a good one. The food was spectacular; the views and weather were phenomenal; and needless to say, the covfefe amazeballs. So we decided to come back after our first year in med school and grad school. We saw the old coffee shop we loved, but we were also eager to try others. And this is it -- our top coffee shops in the PDX. Hope you enjoy it!
Covfefe - some love it; others can’t live without it (I’m looking at you David 🤧). But we can all agree coffee is good; coffee lets us work harder for longer and it just gives us a boost when we need it the most. And for a grad and medical school student pairing, we sure do treasure our coffee. This admiration (and lowkey obsession) are why we wanted to share with you guys our way of crafting the ultimate Cup O’ Jo’ - pourover edition :).
Window Seat is Dallas' new coffee shop, and as its name suggests, it's here to "capture that special feeling you get in anticipation of going on an exciting trip." Here is our review!
If you’re like me, a coffee a day is a basic necessity. And oftentimes, the easiest option is to pop a single serve K-cup into the Keurig machine right before you get ready to leave the house, and wait a few minutes as the smell of coffee permeates around you and coffee fills into your reusable cup.
From late night papers to morning pick-me-ups, the classic cold brew stood there to make sure I was not only awake but also focused and alert. In short, you could say cold brew has been my strongest supporter (sorry Annie!). So it’s noteworthy for me to say that I have crowned arguably the best cold brew in my new home of Houston, Texas -- Anonymous Cafe!
